Emirates Business Class Lounge - Dubai
The Emirates Business Class Lounge in Dubai Airport Concourse A is huge! It runs the entire length of the terminal and entry onto your flight is direct from the lounge. This lounge review covers the general lounge areas, the shower facilities, business facilities and the wonderful food and drinks on offer. The business class lounge is an integral part of flying business class and is an experience not to be missed - as in all things Dubai this is bigger and better than most business lounges found anywhere else in the world. The lounge is open to Emirates Business Class passengers and higher tier SkyWard Frequent Flyer members. Qantas Business Class passengers and Gold Frequent Flyer members can also use this lounge.

The Emirates Business Class Lounge at the Dubai International Airport opened its doors last October 23 with bright new eyes. The renovation cost $11million and resulted in a spectacular new lounge that certainly redefines the airline experience.

Being one of the world's busiest airports, Dubai has had to expand its national carrier's business class lounge due to the number of travelers that need to be accommodated. The new lounge can hold up to 40 percent more travelers, around 1,500 of them, in an area of 10,000 square feet. According to Traveller AU, users qualified for this lounge include Emirates First Class and Business Class customers, and Emirates Skywards Platinum, Gold and Silver members. Some eligible Qantas passengers also qualify to stay at the lounge.

In partnership with Moet & Chandon, a champagne lounge set up inside, serving this French house's finest Moet Imperial, Moet Rose Imperial, Moet & Chandon Grand Vintage and Moet Nectar Imperial.

Another partnership Emirates has worked on is with Voss, the fashionable bottled water. Together, they have created a Health Hub, the first of its kind, which serves fruit and water infusions and smoothies and healthy wraps, sandwiches and salads. Additionally, a sports and cocktail bar is in the works and expected to crop up in the coming year.

According to Aviation Pros, some things that will never change are the complimentary beverages provided by Costa Coffee, with delicious iced coffees, cappuccinos and lattes. The beverage company's bar was redesigned and was given a facelift, with 2,400 intricate gold leaves manually applied.

The on-site chefs serving gourmet cuisine are also still around to serve travelers, and other areas such as the children's play area and Timeless Spa have been renovated and expanded.

Emirates Airlines has three Business Class Lounges at the Dubai International Airport, with this newly renovated lounge offering a premium experience being located at Concourse B.
