The F lounge , not a dedicated floor , if that is better than a dedicated room , for some reason

Contract lounge.... "Club America"

Don't expect anything.

You can expect "anything". Was there in January. Friendly bar lady, nice seating area. A lot of space. View to the tarmac.

I think the Club America is also a PriorityPass lounge.

Well when you get off your flight please do a review of this lounge. I am going through MIA in a couple of months.

Can write you an in-process view. Seperate F lounge that is next door to J lounge. Lounge and looks out over part of airfield and few gates. 14 people in lounge now (which means full F cabin unless some of these people are HONs who are in J) but lounge is spacious so plenty of spaces to sit.

Newspaper and mag selection is bad. 1 English paper (USA Today) and 3 - 4 German dailies. Also 3-4 German mags

Free wifi with a code.

Food selection is quite horrible. Worst than even DL's Crown Lounges which are not great.
2 soups. 3 types of sandwiches which look unappealing. Some nuts, fruit, chips and cookies. Have to ask bartender for any drink incl just water. Huge pain. They have espresso but no latte or cap.


Overall, below average total experience. Not worthy of LH F

No need to load up for a late afternoon flight , just enjoy the dinner on board.

Does the F lounge feature acceptable shower facilities? As it seems I have a trip coming up and can retunr in F from MIA (either LX or LH).
Don't care about food offerings (eat on board as others suggested), but maybe a beer or two and a shower.
Thanks for advice

They do have a shower, but I never used it so I cannot comment on it. Even if it is quite modest as other posters have mentioned, the lounge is new and clean, so I assume the shower room should be acceptable. Also a small business center is available.

Thank you for the information. It seems to be new then? I was there about 2 years ago but before security in a very bland lounge with basically no offerings.

After having checked the airport website and with your answers I assume this is a new lounge after security.
