Access to the Lufthansa Business and Senator Lounge JFK Terminal 1
Access to the Lufthansa Lounges at JFK Terminal 1 are based on class of service and/or airline status.
The Lufthansa Lounge at JFk Terminal 1 is actually 3 lounges: a Business Lounge, a Senator Lounge and a First Class Lounge.
The Business Class lounge is on the the terminal level. Access to this lounge is available to business class passengers on any Star Alliance airline and certain premium economy and other passengers.
The Senator Lounge is one floor up from the Business Lounge. Access to this lounge is reserved for Lufthansa Honors Circle, Senator and Star Alliance Gold status holders.
Generally speaking Senator Lounges are a cut above Business Lounges in terms of food and drinks. But Business Lounges are still pretty nice.
The First Class Lounge is one floor up from the Senator lounge. The only way to get into this lounge is with a first class boarding pass for a Lufthansa or SWISS flight arriving/departing on the same day or with Lufthansa HON status.

The Lufthansa Lounges are located immediately (and I mean immediately) after JFK Terminal 1 security to the left.
Lufthansa Senator Lounge JFK Terminal 1
Our Brussels Airlines flight departed JFK around 6:30 pm, so we arrived at JFK around 4:30 pm.
Before going to the Lufthansa lounge we visited the Priority Pass lounge at JFK Terminal 1. But that lounge didn’t have a lot of food selections so we made our way to the Lufthansa lounge. It’s nice to have choices!
We were flying in business class on Brussels Airlines which qualified us for the Business Lounge. But our Star Alliance Gold status qualified us for the higher level Senator Lounge.
