Location: Terminal A Schengen Area, mezzanine above departures level by gates 25-26 upstairs. Entrance through Polonez Lounge
Access: Miles & More HON and Senator members; Star Alliance gold members; LOT business class passengers on a same-day intercontinental flight
Opening hours: Daily, 5am to 11pm
Located inside the Polonez Lounge is the LOT Elite Club Lounge which is an impressive lounge that offers great selection of food and drinks. As it is exclusive to HON members and Star Alliance gold members, the food was definitely much better than what was offered inside the Polonez Lounge: with an extensive cold buffet, a soup, at least two warm dishes and great desserts to choose from. The alcohol selection was also much better here. Unfortunately, there is no natural light unlike the Polonez Lounge and that the size itself is not that big, that it can get crowded sometimes. There is no shower room here either so one has to use one of the shower rooms in the main lounge. The staff on the other hand are very friendly and helpful. Overall, this is a very nice lounge although I think the design of the Polonez Louge is already very nice matched with a very good selection of food that I wouldn't feel bad incase I don't get to access this lounge. Also, there is the Fantazja Executive Lounge located near gates 36-37 which is worth visiting when you have the access.
