The small lounge is one of four lounges at the Stuttgart Airport, but there is only one open to OneWorld flyers who are traveling from Stuttgart. The other three lounges at this small airport include the Air France/KLM lounge, a Lufthansa lounge, and a tiny closet of a room for Priority Pass card holders. All the lounges are located on the upper level mid terminal, allowing easy access post security and to gates for just about all travelers.
The British Airways lounge is probably the smallest lounge I have ever been to (to date) and is only a small T shape room that is divided into three areas. There is a sitting room/tarmac viewing area, a small dining area next to the kitchen, and a “quiet” room. The quiet room is open to the rest of the tiny lounge, so really there’s nothing quiet about it. Despite this, the lounge was basically empty midday while visiting, so the entire lounge could easily be considered a quiet area.
Food choices were minimal at this lounge and were no better than what you would find at an AA Admirals club. Choices included chips, nuts, and some other prepackaged goods. Drinks were self-served and included all types of German Beer and International Spirits. There was also a small coffee machine and the standard non-alcoholic beverages available.
Overall, the lounge was cute and quaint, but nothing to get excited about. Then again, anywhere quiet is better than sitting in a busy terminal! The couches, after all, are comfortable and the view of the tarmac is superb! Not to forget, the single agent working the desk was extremely friendly. She was all laughs, extremely helpful, and even found individual guests when their flights commenced boarding. She was truly a gem!

So if you are traveling through Stuttgart on a OneWorld partner, know that this little enclave can be your escape. Do not expect anything over the top, but enjoy your retreat from the rest of the busy terminal! One small room with free booze and snacks is better than nothing after all!!
