Review: Airberlin Lounge Dusseldorf Airport

February 1, 2016 – 09:49 pm

Airberlin-Lounge-Dusseldorf-01The airberlin lounge was only a short walk from my arrival gate, and I found the signage shortly before 7AM. I was a bit surprised that I didn’t have to clear security, as is the norm after getting off a longhaul flight in Europe.

The airberlin lounge is located on the second floor of the terminal, and can be accessed either via stairs or elevator.

Airberlin-Lounge-Dusseldorf-35At the entrance, I was welcomed and directed to the left side, which is where the airberlin lounge is located. To the right is the “Open Sky” lounge, which seems to be the contract lounge used by many of the non-oneworld carriers flying out of Terminal C. Etihad also uses the airberlin lounge, given their joint venture with airberlin.

Let me say going in that I had very specific expectations of the lounge, even though I had never been in it or seen pictures. I don’t know why, it’s rare for me to have such a vivid image of a lounge I’ve never been to. But for whatever reason — in line with airberlin’s branding — I expected it to be super-bright, modern, and IKEA/plasticy. I guess kind of like an SAS Lounge, only with more white and red.

The reality couldn’t have been further from the truth.

On the plus side, the lounge was completely empty when I arrived, but it couldn’t have had less natural light and been more dated.

The lounge was a decent size and did feature a variety of seating areas, including couches, comfortable chairs, dining areas, high stools, etc.

There were a selection of international newspapers and magazines available.
