The lounge at Zürich Airport, Switzerland.

An airport lounge is a facility owned by a particular airline (or jointly operated in the case of an alliance). Many offer private meeting rooms, phone, wireless and Internet access and other business services, along with provisions to enhance comfort such as free drinks and snacks. At lounges, passengers also find more comfortable seating, quieter environments and better access to customer service representatives than in the airport terminal.

Access to lounges[edit]

Access to airport lounges may be obtained in several ways. In Australia, Canada, and the United States, a common method to gain access is by purchasing an annual or a lifetime membership, while in Asia and Europe this is usually impossible. Membership fees are sometimes discounted for elite members of an airline's frequent flyer program, and may often be paid using miles. Certain high-end credit cards associated with an airline, such as the Delta Reserve Credit Card and the United MilagePlus Club card (formerly the Continental Presidential Plus card), include membership to the lounges for as long as one owns the card.

Lounge access can also be attained with an airline status card which is common in Europe. The top frequent-flyer levels often offer access to any of an airline's lounges or partner airlines' lounges, when traveling in any class of travel on any of the partner airlines (usually it is required for the cardholder to be booked on one of the carrier's flights within the next 24 hours). Most airlines also usually offer free lounge access to anyone in their international or transcontinental premium cabins (first class or business class) on their days of travel.

Independent programs such as Priority Pass offer access to selected airline lounges for an annual fee, while Airport Angel, Red Dot Lounges and Go Simply offer prebookable access without need for membership. Premium credit and charge cards such as Diners Club International, American Express Platinum and Centurion Card charge cards, and the Morgan Stanley i24 Card, offer lounge programs for members. As of 2008 the American Express Platinum (in some countries) and Centurion charge cards, Morgan Stanley i24 card and the RBS Black Card include Priority Pass membership. American Express also offers access to lounges belonging to partner airlines when flying with those airlines. Some banks like HSBC now offer a lounge access program for premium clients.

Generic lounges operated by private companies, such as Servisair, also exist. Inviting passengers from any airline, most only offer day passes, but some also offer yearly and lifetime memberships.

Besides offering more comfortable seating, lounges usually provide complimentary non-alcoholic beverages and light snacks such as fruit, cheese, soup, pastries and breakfast items. In the United States and Canada nearly all domestic lounges offer an open bar for domestic beer, house wine and well liquor, with premium beverages such as imported beer, top-shelf liquor, high end wines and champagne available for purchase. In US states where open bars are prohibited by law (such as Massachusetts), non-premium beverages may be sold at a token rate (e.g. $1 per drink).

Other amenities typically include flight information monitors, televisions, newspapers, magazines, and business centers with desks, internet workstations, telephones, photocopiers and fax service. Complimentary wi-fi for patrons is also common.

In Asia, Europe and the Middle East, lounges (especially those for First Class passengers) can be quite luxurious, offering an extensive premium open bar, full hot and cold buffet meals, cigar rooms, spa and massage services, fitness centers, private cabanas, nap suites and showers.

First class lounges[edit]

The lounges listed below are mostly considered Business Class Lounges. For many airlines, a First Class Lounge will also be offered to International First Class and top tier passengers. First Class Lounges are usually more exclusive and will feature extra amenities over Business Class that are more in line with the European/Asian concept of an airport lounge. In the few cases where an amenity is offered only in the Business Class Lounge, First Class passengers are permitted to use the Business Lounge if they wish. In any case, anyone with First Class Lounge access almost automatically has access to the Business Class Lounge–such as if a traveling companion is not in First Class and cannot be brought into the First Class lounge as a guest–though lounge agents may get confused when passengers choose to use a lesser amenity than they are entitled. In most cases, airlines will offer first class passengers a free pass to their standard airport club. Some airlines may also offer Arrival lounges for passengers to shower, rest, and eat breakfast after coming out of an overnight long-haul international flight.

Most major carriers have one or more lounges in their hubs and focus cities as well as in the major airports they serve. The major US airlines–American (Admirals Club), Delta (SkyClub), United (United Club) and US Airways (US Airways Club)–operate dozens of lounges, while smaller airlines like Alaska (Board Room) tend to only operate a handful of lounges in their hub and focus cities.

Many airlines outside North America and Australia do not sell lounge membership, reserving lounge access for elite frequent flyers and passengers in premium cabins. However, if one has a lounge membership in an airline in one of the three major airline alliances (Oneworld, SkyTeam and Star Alliance), they will sometimes have access in the lounges of the other members of that alliances. A Qantas Club membership provides access to British Airways and American Airlines lounges since all three carriers are members of Oneworld. A member of the United Club can also access lounges of Air Canada and Air New Zealand, as all are Star Alliance members. Sometimes even non-alliance members will have agreements to allow usage of each other's lounges. Although Alaska Airlines operates just five Board Rooms, its members have access to Delta SkyClubs (and vice versa). Board Room members cannot, however, access the lounges of other SkyTeam members, such as Aeroflot or Air France, which are accessible to SkyClub members. A similar arrangement also exists between Delta and Virgin Australia.

The American Airlines Admirals Club was the first airport lounge when it opened at New York's La Guardia airport in 1939. Then AA President C.R. Smith thought that it would be a great tool for VIP passengers.
