CONCLUSION

The Aegean Business Lounge which is located beside the Lufthansa Business Lounge is definitely much bigger than its neighbor. It has a separate smoking area and a press area where you can find brochures from different tour operators. The buffet offers different sandwiches, cheese, yogurt but no hot buffet unlike the Lufthansa lounge which is a bit disappointing since this is Aegean's hub and one would expect more from this lounge. There are 3 workstations and wifi is free inside the lounge. On the plus side, there are toilets inside the lounge which are missing from the Lufthansa lounge. The lounge was a bit crowded during my visit and as a result, some tables were left with dirty plates and glasses. Overall, this is a nice lounge although if I have to choose between this lounge and Lufthansa's, I would choose the latter.
