Women on the desk react as it was before COVID. They only allow me to go to BL
Food very limited at morning scrambled eggs and beans.......tragedy.....good chocie of alcohol and non-alcohol beverages
Unless you have *G status, a LOT J ticket wouldn't grant you into the Senator Lounge. Same applies for LH Group tickets.

J pax ( without *G ) and FTL members could only access Senator Lounge's when the Business Lounge in that area is closed. For your case, there were both Business and Senator Lounge's open at the G gate level in MUC thus you were asked to use the Business Class lounge.

Normally pre-covid ok yes that's true so why still there is in Lounge site on LH that business class can access senator?
As I understand 2-3 weeks ago in spite of that both were opened offered similar service, something change?
There is still promotion that FTL with LH ticket can buy in for 19 EUR entrance to Senator
I asked and check it

How necessary is it to download and install the Luqa app for lounge access? Does it really facilitate entry?

If you don't have the app you fill out a piece of paper with your contact details.

I'm a little surprised, too. I thought the one-lounge concept for C and SEN is still in place...

The Luca app is for contact tracing. You can input your info ahead of time and skip to the head of the line. Saves time when there is a mass of people in the mornings. Its very easy. Delete the app when you are done if you don't want to keep it or will never use it again.

When will FRA Welcome Lounge reopen?

Will fly into FRA in two weeks' time, and it seems the Welcome Lounge is still closed. Any news when it will reopen?

Observations from Frankfurt non-Schengen Lufthansa lounge on July 18

Yesterday I spent about 5 hours in the LH lounge in the Z gates area in Frankfurt. I had been there a few times last year and this year when food and beverage offerings in lounge were completely suspended.

There was a long line to check in, as expected. Having read about the 24-hour covid test rule for unvaccinated passengers 6 and older, I specifically had my 9-year-old take her test as late as possible to
be able to enter. The check-in lady did check our negative tests, but when I mentioned the 24-hour rule she said they no longer followed it as it was
too difficult to manage. She gave me a simple contact tracing form to fill out (I had tried to download and enter my info into the Luca app prior while already in Europe, but it would not work on my U.S. iPhone).

In the lounge it was very hard to find 2 seats together. The social distancing signs have taken at least half of the capacity offline. After wandering around for a while we finally found some seats,
and later upgraded to comfier seats as they were
vacated. During our stay we observed many visitors
move social distancing signs around. It would have been helpful to have a lounge host assist parties
of 2 and more in finding seats during the busy morning hours.

I was grateful to be able to have some food and drinks in the lounge again. Unfortunately there was
very little available on self-service basis. Long lines formed as people lined up for a simple request for
a glass of water from the bar. Bottles of
water were no longer available. Hydration is a basic need of weary travelers.

At around 1:30 pm they made an announcement that the lounge would close at 2pm! That is very early. We still had 3 hours left, so we wanted to wait as close to 2pm as possible. The cleaning people arrived early and started shutting things down, including the restrooms. I tried to take my daughter to the restroom at 1:50pm only to be yelled at by the cleaning ladies. 😮

It was an interesting visit.

The business lounges in B and Z have also opened now. Whereever a C lounge is open in the same concourse (FRA A&B, MUC G) they are enforcing the SEN/C separation again.

According to: https://www.lufthansa.com/tr/en/lounges
Frankfurt B24-28 J Lounge only has to-go offerings and wouldn't require proof of vaccination or a negative COVID test. ( Similar to A26 )

Business lounge in DUS is really quite good, somewhat better food choices and very few people. But everything seems to come in a jam jar now.

I actually like the jam jars - and it is a more sophisticated solution to the plastic cups, say, at the United Clubs in the US.

Well, you've just got to be careful the glass lids don't go flying off the small ones and end up smashing to the floor.
