The Most Exclusive First Class Lounge in the World?

Connecting in Houston Airport (IAH) I stopped at the KLM Crown Lounge and glimpsed the rarefied air of the Korean Air First Class Only section.

IAH KLM Crown Lounge 02

Designed to fit only the most elite passenger on a flight, this may be the most exclusive first class lounge in the world.

Amenities a bit lacking, though.

I gazed in yearning from the commoners chairs. Dare I cross the threshold?

    But you forgot to tell me which Chase card (with link) I can signup for in order to get access!

    Do they serve the nuts in a package or in a bowl in their IAH lounge?

  • Rapid Travel Chai

    @Jason – CSP is too think to slide in, need a basic plastic card.

    @ordfreqflyer – common mixed nuts, and in a package.

    Can I sit in there with you? LOL

  • Rapid Travel Chai

    @Shannon – would make a travel totem pole.

    I was planning to visit that lounge next month with my Lounge Pass; hopefully by then they’ll have a table full of apples in the lounge area by then
