After checking in for our flight for our flight from Austria to Frankfurt, we were invited to the Austrian First Class lounge.
Since Austrian Airlines does not have a first class cabin from Vienna to Frankfurt, I thought we would have access to the Austrian Senator Lounge.
Upon entering the HON Circle & Lufthansa First Class Lounge, there is a refrigerator full of drinks.
Located in the corner, was a self-serve liquor section along with an espresso machine.
Next to that was the food section, which included crudité, bread, and appetizers in single servings.
There was a section of hot food, fruit and desserts as well. Catering is done by CO & DO. The food was good, but was probably untouched throughout most of the day, as it did not appear that many passengers passed through the lounge on a daily basis.
On each table, there were also martini glasses full of almonds, and other snacks.
The lounge itself is somewhat small, with several tables in the middle of the lounge.
There was also a small, walled off section facing a TV, and two chairs along the far wall.
We were the only people in the lounge for about 30 minutes, before several other passengers arrived.
Unfortunately, the lounge was mostly unstaffed throughout the visit. One lounge attendant came in several times, but only to bring out new food. All in all, the HON Circle & Lufthansa First Class Lounge was very underwhelming based on this visit.
