Welcome back to fitravelife.com!
This post is to introduce the service of Sakura Lounge at Suvarnabhumi Airport, Bangkok Thailand. Normally, I use Japan Airlines to go back to my home. Every time I use Japan Airlines, I also use their lounge, “Sakura Lounge” at the airport.
Below pictures are taken when I took Business class Japan Airlines April 2022 to go back to Japan. I will also update info when I have chance to revisit the lounge.
Sakura Lounge at Suvarnabhumi airport
- Opening hours : 3 hours before Japan Airlines flight only
- Eligibility : One world Sapphire member up or Premium economy class up
Check-in to Japan Airlines
I checked in at first around 5:30 in the morning. Thanks to my One world Emerald elite status, I could use First Class counter with no waiting.
Business class and up passenger can use fast track lane.
Direction of Sakura Lounge
After immigration control, please go right side and go down one floor near gate D.
Not that much crowded in early morning.
JAL Sakura Lounge and other lounges in Suvarnabhumi are all located at lower level after immigration control.
End of escalator, you will see Qatar Airways lounge. This lounge’s eligibility is higher, only business class and up passengers are allowed to enter so elite status of One world group does not suffice. Lounge was actually closed at this time. You can also see my review of Qatar Lounge below.
Sakura Lounge is at the back of escalator. Turn around once you stepped down on this floor..
Operating hours of lounge changes depending on JAL flight schedule. In case you are boarding on other One world group airlines, please check JAL flight time also.
Lounge map I got at check-in counter.
I entered the lounge as first guest of the day so I could take photo freely.
Middle sized lounge offers around 200 seats for solo and family use with dark colored sofa chair and table. It is not so fancy but simple and calm atmosphere you can feel.
Below is right side of the lounge. besides window seats are designed mostly used by solo traveler, watching airplanes take off.
