In an earlier post (Insight – March 2015), Experience The Skies explored the history and innovation of airport lounges as a marketing tool for airlines. Lounge access has become part of the standard for premium class and elite passenger experience. Like many other airlines, Lufthansa partners with lounge companies/ other airlines in expanding the experience without incurring significant capital and operating costs at lower traffic destinations. Expect the German airline to continue building various partnerships to bring more comfort in travel for passengers.
