Alitalia Lounge Rome (FCO)

After checking in we found our way over to the Alitalia lounge.  It appears it’s used for all Etihad owned (or part owned) airlines.  However we were flying home via Lufthansa first class so I am not 100% sure who all gets access.

There was a brief wait as two other guests were ahead of us but after just a moment or two we presented our boarding passes and were welcomed in.

We boarded through 2L and turned left into the business class cabin which consisted of 20 seats in Alitalia’s Airbus A330. When selecting seats several months ago the very front row love seats and the very back row love seats were taken (of course) so I took the only ones left in row 3, seats E and G. Continue reading
