Relaxing in an airport lounge is like finding an oasis in a desert of uncomfortable security, unappetizing food options, and stressful, well, everything. Any lounge can offer some much-needed respite, this list from the team at Hipmunk uses traveller polls and data to highlight the best ones around the globe.
Hipmunk ranked the top ten airport lounges around the world, based on data they collected from travellers. Among the top are Quantas' First Class lounge in Sydney (which scored first place), Thai Airways' Royal First Class in Bangkok, and five different first and business class lounges at London's Heathrow Airport from airlines like British Airways, Virgin Atlantic and Malaysia Airlines.
Hipmunk also ranked the airlines with the best lounges overall, so even if you can't get to one of the top 20 in the list above, you can trust the airline's lounges anywhere. Among the top ten there are airlines like Qatar Airways, Turkish Airlines, Cathay Pacific, Japan Airlines and Iberia, to name a few.
Before you worry you'll never get to see any of these luxury lounges, remember that enjoying the comforts of an airport lounge doesn't have to be insanely expensive. You can check out the full list -- and how they collected the data -- at the link below.
