    I was recently in Michigan to see some relatives. This gave me the opportunity to visit the Lufthansa Senator lounge at the Detroit Metro airport, one of my favorite lounges in the US. The Lufthansa lounge is located in Metro’s North Terminal, which is home to Lufthansa and just about every airline not named Delta. The North Terminal replaced the decrepit Smith Terminal several years ago, and is actually quite nice. It is completely detached from Delta’s McNamara fortress Terminal, and this is often a good thing. With about 28 gates, the Smith Terminal has the feel of a small regional airport -- easy in, easy out. Even the car rental shuttles treat it as its own entity – you have to watch which bus you board after returning a car because some are bound for McNamara while others are going to North. Heck, you can even take different freeways depending on whether you are flying Delta or not! The Lufthansa Senator lounge opened a few years ago and is intended primarily to serve the once daily Detroit – Frankfurt flight. The flight in itself is a bit of an anomaly since there is presumably little connecting feed (doing a Smith to McNamara shuffle seems like a huge pain). But perhaps contrary to popular belief, the auto industry is still chugging along in Michigan and the executives are still largely there so apparently there is sufficient demand for this flight.
