CONCLUSION

The British Airways Terraces Lounge at Tegel Airport is not like the usual British Airways lounges one would find at London Heathrow as this one is a very basic lounge. This is perhaps due to the fact the Tegel Airport itself is not one of the nicest airports in Europe. The food spread during breakfast included bread, coldcuts, cheese and jams. There was a good selection of alcoholic drinks, as well as some juices, coffee and tea. There is complimentary wifi, a few workstations, magazines and newspapers. The lounge has lots of windows for natural light and of course, the staff were very friendly, both of which were from Asia. Unfortunately, there are no toilets which means one has to go outside the lounge. I have previously visited the Lufthansa Senator Lounge in this airport and between the two, the Lufthansa Lounge is the sure winner. Overall, this lounge is good but could be better.
