Lufthansa Senator Lounge Newark

The Lufthansa Senator Lounge Newark is one of two Lufthansa lounges. Before my return flight to Copenhagen with SAS, I used the time at the airport to visit the lounge.

Where is the Lufthansa Senator Lounge Newark located?

The Lufthansa Senator Lounge Newark is located in Terminal B of the airport in gate area 60-68. In this case, the information about the gates is actually very important, because the security check in Newark Airport is in front of each gate area, not as usual at the beginning of the terminal. Gates 60-68 are used by all Star Alliance partners except United Airlines and Air Canada. After the security check, the entrance to the Lufthansa lounges is on the left side of the aisle. There is a Business Lounge and a Senator Lounge at Newark Airport.

Both the Lufthansa Senator Lounge and the Lufthansa Business Lounge can be reached via the same entrance and are open daily from 2:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. The Lufthansa Senator Lounge is on the left after admission control.

Who has access to the Lufthansa Senator Lounge Newark?

Lufthansa and Star Alliance First Class passengers have access to the Lufthansa Senator Lounge Newark. Miles and More frequent flyers with Senator and HON Circle status as well as passengers with Star Alliance Gold status also have access and can invite one additional guest. In all cases, a valid boarding pass for a Lufthansa or Star Alliance flight departing Newark on the same day is required.

How is the Lufthansa Senator Lounge Newark equipped?

Upon entering the lounge, entrance control and the division into Senator Lounge are on the left and Business Lounge on the right. The rather small lounge area begins directly behind the entrance. This has several seating areas, a separate work area, with a kind of bar table. To the right of the entrance is the buffet with food and drinks. On the left is the associated dining area with tables and chairs. The tables at the edge of the area for First Class passengers and HON Circle members are reserved and set accordingly.

There are large windows at the rear of the lounge that overlook a corridor and the apron beyond. This passageway is used to guide arriving passengers to immigration. Most of the armchairs, as well as the work areas, are equipped with a sufficient number of sockets and are separated from each other by small tables with lamps. Free high-speed Wi-Fi is also available.

Oddly enough, there was no shelf in the lounge with a selection of newspapers and magazines, which are otherwise available in almost all Lufthansa lounges. This service may also have been abolished with the pandemic in Newark. Too bad.

What is there to eat and drink in the Lufthansa Senator Lounge Newark?

The buffet in the Lufthansa Senator Lounge Newark offers both hot and cold dishes. When I visited there were four hot dishes and one soup to choose from. The selection of hot dishes was very international, for example there was a Moroccan lenti soup, German sauerkraut and potato gratin. The cold buffet offered a variety of salads, wraps and a caramel pudding. All in all a very good and tasty selection.

When it comes to drinks, the Lufthansa Senator Lounge Newark has a rich bar and a diverse selection of non-alcoholic drinks. In addition to spirits, beer and wine, there is also the usual selection of soft drinks and juices. The beer selection consisted of Warsteiner and König Ludwig on tap and several local pale ales in bottles. There was also a coffee machine.

The staff in the Lufthansa lounge was very friendly and the tables in the restaurant area were quickly cleared and cleaned. However, we were also in the lounge at a very quiet time so there was generally little for the staff to do.

The Lufthansa Senator Lounge Newark exceeded my expectations. I found the food on offer to be above average and the range of drinks to be very extensive. The seating areas were pleasant and although it can get very busy at peak times I would highly recommend the Lufthansa Senator Lounge Newark.
