Overall Rating: 9/10
A flagship United Airlines outstation lounge, accessed on this occasion at 18:00 using a Turkish Airlines Star Alliance Gold card with a TAP flight.
This lounge is located at the Terminal 2 B Satellite – where the majority of longhaul flights depart from. It is possible to access this lounge when departing from a T2A gate, but it is a long walk there and back (15 mins each way).
A comprehensive self-serve buffet selection is available throughout the day:
- Morning: full cooked breakfast buffet, pastries, yoghurt, cereals, fruit etc.
- Afternoon/Evening: a wide selection of hot buffet – pasta, meat dishes, sandwiches and dessert options.
A stylish bar with service is available with a full selection of beers, cocktails and wines. There are even a few custom cocktails created directly for the United lounge.
Staff are friendly, fast and professional.
WiFi and Power:
Private lounge wifi, accessed by password.
Power widely available inside on comfy chairs, and in the business centre.
Views and Comfort:
A wide range of seating options. Mostly comfortable, modern chairs with side tables. Reasonable views over the apron.
Fairly quiet later on, but it gets very busy at the peak of the day when most US-bound flights depart. A business area with computers and printer is available for those who wish to use it.
