But not all lounges – whether it’s owned by the airline or independently operated – are created equal. Some are chockfull of amenities like showers, Wi-Fi, work areas, and complimentary food and beverage, while others have the bare essentials. However, with their lucrative potential, many of these lounges are upping their game by improving the experience.
