I have flown thru Frankfurt airport (FRA) tens of times. Living in the DC area, it is one of the best connected cities in Europe with 4 flights every day – 2 each by United and Lufthansa. (London’s Heathrow (LHR) has the best connectivity with 7 flights per day, thru three airlines – United, British Airways and Virgin Atlantic). Given it is a Star Alliance airlines’ hub (Lufthansa), Frankfurt is my 1st choice to transit thru to destinations in Europe and India. Every time I do get to Frankfurt, I use one of Lufthansa’s many lounges. This time however, as I walking to the Lufthansa lounge closest to my gate, I happened to notice the Air Canada Maple Leaf lounge. Just for a change, I stepped in. I was glad I did.

First, it was not crowded at all. This was peak time in the early morning and the Lufthansa lounges are typically full to the brim. The Maple Lounge, not so much. The lounge had a vast selection of food. Having slept thru breakfast service on my incoming flight, I made my way to the food real fast.

The lounge was beautiful, with a ultra-modern decor that I loved.


More importantly, it was spacious, comfortable, with a relaxed atmosphere and had good food and beverages. I am sure I will be stopping bye again on future flights that happen to leave from near the lounge.

Location: Frankfurt Airport, Terminal 1, Departure Area B.

    I really loved this lounge! The decor was modern and chic, the staff were very friendly, it was spacious, better selection of food over LH lounges. And it was NOT crowded as you mentioned.

    Slightly off topic but does anyone know what lounge is used by Thai Airways in FRA for F class and any reviews anywhere?

    @caveman TG F passengers have access to the LH SEN lounge in B nonschengen.

    @caveman I arrived in FRA enroute to BKK in F with Thai and the TG agent met my flight and escorted me directly to this Maple Leaf Lounge and he came and fetched me upon boarding time. The lounge was located across the TG gate which was a plus.
