Emirates Airport Lounge
At this point it is worth mentioning that both the Emirates lounges at Dubai airport are huge. They span the whole length of the terminal with integrated duty free and an entire shopping experience. You board your flights directly from both lounges. The business lounge is on the 4th floor with the first class lounge being located on the 5th floor.
Emirates Business Class Lounge Terminal 3
Better than many business lounges, the Emirates Business Class Lounge offers a nice touch with seating areas, a buffet and bar service, business facilities as well as an environment for the whole family.
Offering spotlessly clean toilets and efficient, if a little robotic service, the facility is good for relaxing and surfing the web on their free wifi with good speed. There is a children's play area which is also equipped with a TV and also business facilities, computers, internet connections and printers for those who need to stay connected. Co-located with the Emirates First Class lounge, you have access to the exclusive duty free shopping and the luxury shops.
The shortcomings are mainly inadequate seating at peak times and it can be a little too noisy. It also gets quite busy because it is accessible for Skywards gold card holders, so frequent flyer economy class passengers have access to the lounge.
Emirates Business Class Lounge Location: Terminal 3, Concourse B, Near gate B22 on the departures level.
Emirates First Class Lounge Terminal 3
Located with the business class lounge, the Emirates First Class Lounge is an escape from the pressures of travel. Enjoying shared access to the exclusive duty free and luxury shops along with the business lounge, this lounge also offers additional first class privileges.
This lounge is very similar to the business lounge with a few of the same problems. The layout can make it difficult to find the empty seating areas, but when you do you can have a nice place to relax for a while.
Better Champagne and water are the signatures of this lounge with a generally better atmosphere helped by less people being ion the lounge. A nice addition to the Emirates experience, but not really a destination in itself.
