Priority Pass Added Lufthansa Lounge At DTW Airport
Great news my fellow Detroit flyers DTW finally has a Priority Pass lounge (you can read my full review here). Priority Pass added the Lufthansa Business Lounge at DTW airport. It is located in the North Terminal which previous had no options to frequent flyers. The McNamara Terminal always had Delta lounges for Delta flyers but nothing was available to Southwest, most United passengers, American Airlines etc. flyers out of the North Terminal. That all changed today.
The lounge is located in the North Terminal next to gate D8. The lounge previously only handled Lufthansa’s once per day direct flight to Frankfurt. Now it will be open to everyone with a Priority Pass membership. They are not allowing PP members in during 13:00 and 16:00 daily. That coincides with the daily flight to Frankfurt.
The hours of the lounge are as follows:
- 5:00-18:30 Monday-Saturday
- 11:00-18:30 Sunday
Children under 2 get in free and there is a maximum visit of 3 hours.

While Detroit has one of the more relaxed airport terminals in the country it is still nice to see them finally get a lounge option at the North Terminal. Blocking the lounge everyday from 1-4pm isn’t the best but it is understandable since they don’t want to bother their actual passengers. It was a lounge that was wildly underused since it was there for one flight per day. This works out well for them and for Priority Pass cardholders.
I may end up flying Southwest a lot more often with this addition. Let me know your thoughts in the comments section.
