After trying out both Lufthansa Senator Lounge and Maple Leaf Lounge in Frankfurt during my last 2 visits, I have decided to try out the Senator Lounge again.
Until recently, transit in Frankfurt requires security check – which has since been dispensed with, though you still get an escort from the door to the lounge. Instead of weaving through the airport, one disembark straight to the waiting gate and straight to the lounge. In the past, you will come to the Maple Leaf Lounge first but with this new arrangement you reach the Senator Lounge first.
Senator Lounge is used as the First Class Lounge for Star Alliance First Class and Star Alliance Gold passengers. Unfortunately, there is no admission to the Lufthansa First Class Lounge or First Class Terminal (for those departing from Frankfurt).

SQ 26 (the journey continues…) – for Part 1(A) click here
We were met at door 1L by a ground staff who escorted us through the security checkpoint and transit area. The walk to the transit area is a little far (about 5 minutes) and we spent another 5 minutes going through a tight security check (similar to that done by TSA agents in USA). Out of the 12 pax, 3 of us continued on to JFK.
