Saveur Picks Best 2014 Airline Lounges

By  | 

Saveur Magazine just released their 2014 Best Airline Lounge rankings based on “a panel of expert travelers” and readers and here is how the airport lounges stacked up.

Experts’ Choice: Singapore Airlines’ SilverKris Lounge, Singapore Changi Airport

Singapore Air Private Room Satay

Satay to order in The Private Room Lounge, Changi Airport

I’ve only seen the Silver Kris lounge briefly, having been quickly walked through on my way to The Private Room for Singapore Airlines First Class. It looked nice, and I certainly enjoyed sipping Grande Dame and ordering off dim sum and satay off The Private Room menu!

Readers’ Choice: Qatar Airways, London Heathrow Airport

 

Outstanding

Emirates’ First Class Lounge (Dubai)

Etihad’s Diamond First Class Lounge (Abu Dhabi)

Thai Airways’ First Class Lounge (Bangkok)

As everyone probably knows, the Thai Airlines First Class Lounge in Bangkok is one my favorite lounges of all times, but that has more to do with the service and the free spa treatments then it does the food, which is good but not amazing. Despite the fact it has it’s own food room where you point to order and then a fresh preparation is brought to you.

Qantas First Lounge, Sydney Airport (SYD)
Cathay Pacific: The Wing, Hong Kong International Airport (HKG)
Finnair Lounge, Helsinki-Vantaa Airport (HEL)
