Swiss Business Lounge E Gates Kloten Reviews

The newly opened lounge is fab, with a balcony to boot! Oct 13, 2017
Oh my days!

How I used to dread the days the only lounge Star Gold could use was the dreadful lounge near the A gates - overcrowded and all that.

Fast forward to a few years later the Swiss flagship lounge finally opened doors at the E gates: home to most long haul flights out of Kloten. Save for a few major carriers like Emirates and Cathay Pacific, almost all long haul flights are Star Alliance (SQ, LX, UA, AC, etc.) which means this lounge is definitely busy throughout the day.

Everything's amazing about this lounge - several types of seating areas (lounge bar stools, restaurant style seating, etc.), quite a bit of food choice (cold, hot, ready to cook such as omelettes) and a coffee machine with over 20 varieties! Dear God!

If I had to call out 2 areas of improvement:

1. More number of bathrooms (as in showers, please)! And what's with the whole "we'll hold your boarding card and we'll give you the bathroom key" thing going on? Most other lounges don't do that! That said, the bathrooms are really amazing: very posh and several amenities (see photos)

2. No ovomaltine! Guys, it's the one product of Switzerland everyone loves. A lounge is a great place to showcase it! (Yes, I know, first world problems!)

The highlight of this lounge has to be the brilliant viewing terrace that overlooks one side of the departure gates. But talk about attention to detail: it's not just the terrace that impressed me, but they've even placed viewing bino's and power outlets.

Swiss have realised that they needed to catch up given the new wave competition. It's great to see them up their game with new aircraft and a spanky new lounge.
