Which lounge was nice surprise to you?

Mine was in Frankfurt. The Vietnam Airlines site said that they used the Skylounge (3rd party provider). This lounge is currently closed so we were all actually sent to the JAL lounge. The only pax in it were from the two Vietnam Airline flights departing Frankfurt at the same time - to Hanoi and Saigon. So it was very quiet and very comfortable. I had a typical Japanese Beef Curry.

The unfortunate thing is when the daily JAL flight departs around 1900 it's a bit cramped. Other airlines using this lounge have departures arround then unsurprisingly, so there is a bit of seat stalking going on. Then the rush to get through security.

If not crowded, agree 100%.
 
Mine has to be the LH Senator Lounge in MUC. Not the fanciest of lounges, sure, but I was so elated by the fact I could self-pour as much Franziskaner Hefeweizen - brewed just a short distance away - as I desired, that the world around me just faded away. It was breakfast time, and I can't even recall why I was there on that occasion (not work - some other jaunt), but I do recall a lot of German businessmen looking on, some green with envy at this young Aussie taking full advantage of the spoils :cool: Wheat bier and doughy pretzels for breakfast!? Prost!!! 🍻
 
It wasn't exactly a surprise as people have raved about it but it was my first time in the "newly opened" F lounge in Singapore since the C time. It doesn't have a great view. The ambience is good. But the staff here make it perfect. And the meals wonderful.

The Vietnam Airlines flights were both due to depart at 13:55. It only got a little busy in the last 15 minutes or so.
 
The Qantas lounge at Hong Kong airport is a nice surprise! 10x better than their ones in Sydney and Melbourne. In addition to their signature gourmet hot dishes 1.Beef briskets noodles in soup, and 2. BBQ pork with rice, they now have Yum Cha cart going around starting 5pm each day. A lounge not to be missed!

But they had Taittinger, so that was all that mattered. :D
You're a person after my own heart. If they don't have champagne, I don't want to go.

Hence why I love the Omanair lounge at BKK. Self-pour decent champagne. And not to mention the SQ lounge there and also the FCL's at LGW and LHR. And perhaps the SKL's at SIN.

They're a dying breed I think.
