On my recent Qantas First Class flight from Dubai to Sydney, I have the pleasure to sample the Emirates First Class lounge in Dubai Concourse A, which occupies the whole 3rd floor of the concourse. It is possibly the biggest F class lounge I've ever visited!
Follow me in the photo journey to discover the massive First Class lounge.
Entrance on Level 3
Nice Podium, passenger enter the lounge through the passage behind the reception.
An individual duty free area is presented after entering to the lounge.
Above the lounge is the Business Class Lounge and Hotel.
There are many seating area right next to each boarding gate. There is a food and beverage station outlet to each seating area.
My Qantas flight use gate A1, and here are the photo of the amenity near the gate in the lounge.
Wow, even a sushi and sashimi station at the gate!
If you like to explore further, there are two buffet area and two fine dining area located at each end of the Concourse.
Fine Dining area is just adjacent to the buffet area. A waiter will get you seated and serve your order.
My cooked to order breakfast, although the omelet looks rubbery, it is one of the best I have in the UAE!
Breakfast with a view!
After breakfast, it is time to walk around to explore more!
Children's play area.
Emirates Cigar Bar (Smoking room)
Timeless Spa located next to the lounge on level 3
First Class pax gets 15 minute free treatment.
After exploring the lounge, you simply board your flight from the lounge boarding gate directly!
Well the Emirates First Class lounge may looks huge and one can be disorient at times. I suggest you to allow plenty of time to explore and enjoy it.
As soon as you arrive at the lounge, you should head to the Timeless Spa to book in for a treatment as it is often full in the busy hub hours.
Head to the end of the lounge, where the fine dining restaurant is located and you will not be disappointed. The food there is one of the best in terms of airline lounge offering.
After that head for the Cigar bar or quiet lounge for some relaxation before boarding directly to your plane.
The Emirates First Class lounge at Concourse A offers solid product in literally unlimited amount of space. It probably takes more than one visit to get used to it. Once acquainted, there are excellent values to be enjoyed! I certainly tried to make the most of my visit!
I would be interested to know your thoughts about it!
