This is part six of a twelve part trip report from my travels to Prague, Nice, Bratislava, Sorrento, and Rome. This trip picture report covers my experience at the Nice Côte d’Azur Lounge.

I was flying from Nice (NCE) back to Prague (PRG) on Czech Airlines and used my Delta Platinum status to gain entry to the lounge. Don’t worry if you don’t have status though, there was no one manning the check-in desk the entire time I was at the lounge. The lounge itself was quite small but did have a few areas of somewhat worn leather seats, an interesting food selection, and a more than adequate wine, champagne, spirits, and juices selection.

Two of the more surprising misses for a lounge located in such a wealthy destination, there were no outlets by any of the seats and only a one person bathroom! There were a few outlets located near the entrance wall and back wall, but otherwise there was no charging areas in the entire lounge.

“Local Nice Specialties” included tapenade, tomato spread, pesto, and local olive oil.

Certainly not one of the best lounges, but for the most intra-Europe flights, more than adequate. Also nice that the lounge is located quite centrally within the departures area. I’d stay away from the sandwiches and older baked goods that looked like they had been there all day long.

Love the blog.
Suggestion: Take your food / amenity photos from a lower angle. The birds eye view shots don’t translate well visually. Just my .02.
