Royal Jordanian’s hub lounge in Queen Alia International Airport offers plenty of space to spread out and a great selection of Middle Eastern appetizers.
You’ll find the lounge on the upper level of the main departures hall at AMM. Entrance is reserved for Royal Jordanian and oneworld business class passengers, oneworld Emerald or Sapphire members, and Priority Pass members.
Looking up from the ground level, the lounge appears to be one large balcony stretching around the terminal and overlooking the Duty Free shops and gates below. I like the design very much.
Beverage stations are strategically positioned around the lounge, including a wine bar, self-serve coffee, and plenty of soft drinks and fruit juices.
The buffet includes great mezze items like tabuleh, labneh, hummus, and tasty mini beef schwarma rolls. Fresh salads, sandwiches, pastries, and breads. Other hot items include mozzerlla sticks, potato balls, and meat balls.
You might think this lounge must get very crowded. After all, it is not only the lounge for the airport’s number one carrier, it is also a Priority Pass lounge. But I’ve visited twice, once in the early evening and once in the middle of night and both times the lounge was not crowded at all.
Seating is varied throughout the lounge.
There’s even a few private TV rooms:
And a quiet room:
Restrooms and showers (not pictured) are available. Showers cost 11JOD to use.
Sadly, internet functions slowly. Bring along a converter if you want to charge your devices and don’t have UK-style plugs.
I liked this lounge better than the nearby Petra Lounge, both part of the Priority Pass network. If you arrive hungry you can leave full, but this better to enjoy some excellent appetizers in this lounge and enjoy a heartier meal on your flight.
