Let me know how your trial with Scotch does
I wonder if we can get a medical grant for a FT trial to assess effectiveness of alcohol. Will get a pretty good sample size very quickly
Excellent, the more research the better

Its a very arduous trial but Im persevering....... credit to Lufthansa, who are part funding my trial at the FCT Whiskey Bar 🥃.

I think it is due to Covid in so much as they let their license lapse at the end of 2020 and never renewed for 2021. The staff said it was a license issue as opposed to Covid protocols. In MA, all on-premise and off-premise (and indeed all wholesale/import) licenses run on a calendar year basis. There is no pro-rating of the license if you apply in October; you pay the full year regardless. They're probably being cheap and don't want to pay full cost for 2-3 months. I bet we see alcohol back at the first of the year. Hopefully I'm proven wrong.
BTW: We did go down to the Air France lounge as well, but it was much more crowded and that lounge is just a little depressing. Lufthansa space is so much better.

That makes sense, its Lufthansa group being cheap again

Doesnt it dawn on the intern thats in charge of lounge provision that LH competes with AF & here is a glaring comparison, one airline cares about their premium pax & FF & the other doesnt.....

Yes, the LH lounge is so much better since they moved from the windowless basement to the spot where the lounge is now.

Let's hope full service returns at the latest with the new calendar year.

Lounge is open, however, no booze, as of a month or so ago. Might have changed since then.

Yeah, if they don't have their license by now we definitely won't see it until the beginning of the year.

I am going to use the AF/Priority Pass lounge instead, but I wonder if it's self-serve wine there or bartender service (I have to remember to bring cash if so)?

As of a few weeks ago the Air France lounge had a bartender/attendant, however, the bartender/attendant wasn't always present so people were also serving themselves.

Anyone been through recently? Wondering if the First Class section is open and if it's worth getting to the airport early for it. Do they still let you board from the lounge?

Thanks

Terrible. With F back on the MUC route I sure hope they make it a priority. I am flying BOS-MUC in 10 days and while I will mostly wait till the much better booze on the plane ... would be nice to have a glass of champagne with a meal.

Can't believe LH still hasn't addressed this. Could just go to the AF lounge I guess.
