At new lounges, fliers wait in style
Airlines seek to raise revenue with premium service
As airlines seek ways to generate revenue, many of them are remodeling their lounges to appeal to passengers who pay top dollar for tickets. At Logan International Airport, five airlines - British Airways, Virgin Atlantic Airways, American Airlines, Air France, and Lufthansa - have remodeled their clubhouses in the past four years. Many US carriers have opened the once-exclusive clubhouses - once reserved for first- and business-class passengers - to anyone willing to pay.
