After landing in Prague from Madrid, I stopped by the CSA Czech Airways lounge to print out my train tickets I had bought from Prague to Krakow for later that week. The lounge is operated by a third party operator and despite being looking like a SkyTeam lounge, and listing all the skyteam partner along with about 20 other airlines, the lounge would not grant me access. This is because they are only paid by Skyteam airlines when passengers are departing. I then noticed the lounge was a Priority Pass lounge, so I handed them my Priority Pass card (free from my American Express Platinum) and they then allowed me access.
The lounge is divided into two sections, to the left there is a sitting area, computer work station, bathrooms, and a beverage and snack area and to the right is another beverage and snack area and more seating. The area to the left of reception has great runway views, and there are none to the right. I would suggest everyone to sit on the left side, provided you’re an AVgeek like me!
Cold Beer & sandwiches
Overall, the lounge is very basic but provides for a good place to relax before your short Schengen flight. Food and drinks are complimentary along with wifi, computer work stations, and printing. The food and drink selection was small, but sufficient for a Schengen region lounge and still better than most US lounges. Not to mention I LOVED all the local beverages (beer & wine) available!
