As I was a bit overwhelmed by the crowd at the SilverKris Lounge, I’ve decided to visit the Lufthansa Lounge next-door with the hope of relaxing a bit before the beginning of my around-the-world trip.
I created the KN Aviation My Flight Log, a log book for aviation enthusiasts and frequent flyers, for exactly that purpose...

Luckily, since all Lufthansa Group flights (Swiss to Zurich, and Lufthansa to Munich and Frankfurt) leave after midnight, the lounge was rather deserted when I visited around 9PM.
As a side note, based on the sign board at the entrance, the lounge is open daily between 8:30PM and 2:30AM.
The lounge was quite spacious and I loved the elegant yet simple design of the lounge. With its wall photo of the Alps, it reminded me of Austrian’s lounge in Vienna.
In terms of seating, besides the typical sofa chairs, it even had a little nap room which I found to be quite impressive for an outstation lounge. The nap room had four relaxation chairs (similar to chairs that can be found in Lufthansa’s lounge in Frankfurt) separated by divider walls.
Separately, there was also the buffet area together with a number of dining tables.
After exploring the lounge a bit, I sat on one of the sofas which I found comfortable to relax on.
As for the lounge staff, they were very attentive. As an example, when a guest wondered around the buffet counter, a staff would always try to help with serving drinks or opening a bottle.

Food & Drinks Selection
Although the Lufthansa Lounge didn’t offer as much variety of food as the neighboring SilverKris Lounge, the quality of the food was quite good.
There was a selection of salads and appetizers, two vegetarian hot meals, two non-vegetarian hot meals, soup, two kinds of desserts, some fresh fruits, as well as sandwiches among other options.
The drink options were quite impressive too, and they even had two brands of sparkling wine on offer – Sula and Chandon. The latter is an off-shoot of Moet-Chandon that is bottled in India instead of Champagne.
Of all the food on offer, I tried Chinese-style chicken salad, some fruits, a piece of apple pie, and roasted tomato & basil soup. All of them were delicious – including the apple pie which suited my sweet tooth well. I washed it all down with Chandon sparkling wine.
Lufthansa Lounge Delhi Summary
I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the lounge, especially considering that it is an outstation lounge only open during very limited hours.
The comfortable couches and the tasty food, combined with the lounge’s spacious and elegant design made the visit quite enjoyable.

That said, I can only guess how crowded it gets after midnight – prior to the departures of the Lufthansa Group flights. However, for a quick visit around 9PM or 10PM, I can only recommend this lounge.
