My Ethopian Airlines flight to Addis Ababa left from the middle of the C gates at Frankfurt. I cannot ever recall leaving from here so after the hike from my arrival
gate bus I hiked over to the Senator Lounge at the end of the C pier. I had to pass through Security to get there, and was told that I would have to do this again when I finally went to my gate! Joy!
The Senator Lounge is quite large and I was able to watch my aircraft arrive on the inbound segment from the large windows.
The lounge furniture was predictably LH, lots of dark blue seats arranged in rows:
The food was better than I remember it from visits of old, with lots of self-serve hot and cold items, drinks and wine.
A number of gates board directly from the lounge which is a nice treat, and I think this flight was off to Tehran:
The decor was quite pleasant and the toilets clean and well designed:
Even the black slate walls of the loos were well designed:
Soon it was time for the 10 minute hike back to my gate and another dose of FRA Security.
So, it’s a nice, quiet, out of the way lounge, but double security is a pain.
