After our very disappointing (to put it mildly) visit to the IASS lounge it was time to find the Korean Air lounge post security near gates 26/28.

As a reminder, as a Gold Medallion or higher even on a coach ticket you can gain entrance on a same day departing or connecting ticket.

The first thing that welcomes you is a nice view of runway. Always nice for those of us who like to plane gaze as we relax in a lounge.

The lounge is a large box with 60’s style cloth covered chairs and little access to power ports that we have come to expect in Delta clubs (and any modern club).

There is also a small section of the club “blocked” for first class passengers. The only upgrade they get to enjoy is leather seating vs the cloth the rest of us get to experience

In one corner of the club are food choices. In our case breakfast that was a mix of pastries and Asian choices as well.

I am not a rice in the morning fan but Dave tried one and seemed to say it was ok. I will take his word for it.

Drink choices are all self serve and limited when it comes to adult beverages but at least they do have one of the kool beer machines that I did test in the Delta club (more on that later).

Lastly the wifi was reasonably fast and again the views were a highlight of the club. Personally I would pass on this lounge and spend your time in the Sky Club (either one).

Have you visited the Korean Air Lounge in NRT? What were your impressions?- René

  1. I’ve been here a lot. It’s really disappointing, to be honest. It can get very crowded and the food selection is pathetic. I don’t know why Korean’s elites wouldn’t go to the Delta lounge with its much better–albeit static and never-changing–selection of food.

  2. Your photos and review make it seem better than it’s ever been while I was there. Their food choices have always been extremely minimal and not very good.

    That said, it’s usually been less crowded than the Delta lounge, so I often end up there anyway. One time they did ask me to go to the Delta lounge instead, since I was a Delta elite, which I found off-putting and odd. All in all, when transiting NRT, I’m just looking for quiet and perhaps whichever lounge is running aircon, if any, since it’s usually too humid for my taste.

  3. Yes, the choice of adult beverages is quite limited. However, with Remy Martin XO cognac and Ballantine’s 17 scotch on offer, the quality is very good.

  4. I agree with the comments that the KE lounge at NRT (and frankly all the lounges in terminal 1) are disappointing as international business/first-class lounges.

    One neat thing, though, about lounges in Japan and Korea is the high-tech toilets. Hopefully you will report on these in the Skyclub reviews.

    The Korean Air and delta lounges in Terminal 1 don’t hold a candle to any of the One World lounges (American, Japan Airlines, Qantas, and Cathay Pacific) in Terminal 2. Japan Airlines has two+ first-class lounges in Terminal 2. Delta elites have no access to first-class lounges. So sorry.

    I look forward to your reviews of the delta clubs in Terminal 1.

  5. I don’t mind the NRT lounges for Delta as a business-class traveler. The food is decent, albeit it never changes. The staff are incredible. What a contrast. Sometimes I think these Japanese staff would jump off a cliff to serve a customer. I feel bad for the NRT workers at Delta, who are being slowly laid off as Delta’s NRT presence is reduced. Really nice place to fly in and out of. Even the security folks at the international connecting checkpoint are courteous. TSA could learn a few lessons.

  6. I totally agree with EX-FNT regarding the employees who work in the NRT skyclubs and the NRT security personnel.
