Top First-Class Lounges in Airports

Flying first class is lovely, of course, but where you fly from and to can make the experience just as swank. CNN has a fun list of five notable airport lounges—not all of which belong to specific airlines.

In Bangkok's Thai Airways First Class Lounge, for example, guests get semi-private rooms and can book hour-long spa treatments. Lufthansa's First Class terminal in Frankfurt, meanwhile, is just what it sounds like: A whole terminal just for first-class passengers, each of whom gets a personal assistant for the stay. In Singapore, the JetQuay terminal is not affiliated with any airline, so any passenger can book a stay (it includes personal escorts to and from the plane and private immigration service).

One of our personal favorite first-class lounges—Qantas' in Melbourne (pictured right)—didn't make the list, but we still recommend it as a top pre-flight experience. Chef Neil Perry's cuisine is delicious, and the space is wonderfully soothing (very important before a flight of 12+ hours).
