I have a business class ticket for my flight with Lufthansa from Venice and I have a connecting flight from Frankfurt. Then my other flight is in Economy class with Sunexpress. Can I still access to Lufthansa lounge in Frankfurt Airport using the (old) business boarding pass even after I arrived there? Or I can't access there because my next departure is not Business class anymore?

Probably not.

Lufthansa Rules are notoriously complicated and at the moment there doesn't seem to be anything published officially. At least I couldn't find it.

A recent trip report that was a similar case was denied access, since lounge access through class of service is determined by the departing ticket, not the arriving (or the whole itinerary).


If this is on a single ticket you can certainly walk up to the counter and ask. See what happens. If these are two separate tickets, the answer is no.

  • Agreed. On the other hand, Lufthansa often advertised post-flight shower and lounge access to me (before covid). It probably depends on the mood of the person at the entry.

  • Today I called the customer service of Lufthansa and asked if i could use the lounge after my arrival and they said Yes. Since sunexpress is owned by Lufthansa i guess.
