Prague Airport Terminal 2 Menzies and Erste Premier lounges

When I flew out of Prague to Krakow three weeks ago from Terminal 2 on Ryanair, I stopped by the two Schengen zone airport lounges. Menzies lounge is open to Priority Pass members. The Erste Premier Lounge for SkyTeam flyers is also available to me with my Diners Club card.

Coffee, light snacks, wine and liquor.

Only beer in cans. I avoid beer in a can whenever I can.

Plenty of seating. Business center in Menzies lounge is near front desk.

This was my first time visiting the Menzies Lounge at Prague PRG.

I did not stay long at Menzies and went over to check out the Erste Premier Lounge down the hall. Once I was inside, I recalled being there before for an early morning flight in January 2018 to Copenhagen.

Erste Premier Lounge was much better stocked with some hot food and bottles of Czech Budweiser including strong Bud I have had before at the Terminal 1 Mastercard Prague lounge last October.

Kelley was amazed I did not drink a beer on my lounge visit. I was saving myself for Krakow and 1 liter steins of Tyskie at Sukiennice.

This July visit revealed an entirely different larger section of the Erste Premier lounge that was not open when I visited in January 2018.

Prague Airport is one of my favorite European airports with several lounges in Terminals 1 and 2 accessible with my Diners Club card. Usually I am grabbing a last beer before flying off to Scandinavia with its prohibitive beer prices that turn me into a temporary teetotaler. A quick one hour flight to Krakow and one beer already downed for the day kept me limited to a quick bite to eat before boarding Ryanair to Krakow, Poland for a one hour flight on a $27.41usd ticket including Priority Boarding for two carry on bags and a reserved seat assignment. Czech Republic and Poland were not locations experiencing Ryanair pilot strikes this summer.

  2. Thanks. How do you compare the lounges and the airports of PRG vs WAW? I do like the Priority Pass lounge at WAW–it’s not big, but it’s very relaxing. Food options are also good. In fact, food at this lounge is better than the bigger and more sleek looking Swiss Business Lounge at ZRH.

    My only issue with WAW is traffic jam if using Uber or taxi. I had quite a lot of luggage and didn’t use the train. There was some construction around WAW last summer.
