Tunisair is the flag carrier airline of Tunisia. Formed in 1948, it operates scheduled international services to European, African and Middle Eastern destinations. Its main base is Tunis-Carthage International Airport. The airline's head office is in Tunis, near Tunis Airport. Compared to other lounges I have stopped at, this one is my least favorite.

The Tunisair privilege lounge, located next to door 50 welcomes you for a quick relaxation session before your flight. You won't miss it as it's in a closed space with two big wooden doors. You feel like you're like entering a mountain lodge. This is a premiere for me since all lounges usually have glass transparent doors that feel more welcoming. Inside is a big square divided into four distinctive areas surrounding the middle court of tables and chairs like a street restaurant. The nice thing is that sofas are big, like the Beirut's MEA lounge which can host families or large groups.

The Lounge features:

  • Two computers with Internet access
  • A small bar with a couple of Alcoholic bottles
  • A couple of cheese rolls and croissants island
  • Three choices of fresh juices
  • Water bottles all together in a cold stainless container
  • A cold milk dispenser and another one with black coffee

What I liked:

  • The different patterns on the ceiling
  • The tarmac view
  • The lounge's calmness

The minuses:

  • The staff needs training
  • The food choices are mediocre
  • Only one rest room available making you wait for your turn
  • The food is not tasty
  • The lounge is dull and old

The verdict: I didn't like the lounge at all!
