As part of my recent short trip I had another visit at the Emirates Business class lounge in Dubai, while having flown Emirates countless of times from and to Dubai I have never actually reviewed their lounge yet.
As my flight to Kuala Lumpur was scheduled with a Boing777-300ER aircraft the gate and lounge for this departure were located in concourse B of Emirates and Qantas exclusive terminal 3.
Since there are countless of reviews for the Emirates lounges at DXB and I had only limited chances on taking unobstructed pictures I will keep this review short.
Check-in was extremely quick and comfortable since Emirates operates a dedicated Business/First check-in with separate drop-off, immigration and security check. Spotless service that is unparalleled with most competitors!
Emirates operates several lounges with different features and perks, the one in concourse B is probably one of the rather boring ones for Emirates standards, as it does feature only limited brand partnerships (costa) and no boarding direct from the lounge.
Admission to the lounge is granted to all passengers with a departure ticket in business class and Emirates Skywards Silver members onwards. The lounge lays out over a huge area of the upper level in concourse B and is designed to cater to several thousand guests.
Inside the lounge several decently sized restrooms and showers are conveniently placed. Everything is in the typical Emirates design theme and comes with nice amenities.
Reaching throughout the whole length of the lounge are lounge chairs on the middle row whereas on the sides are either dedicated areas like lounging, rest, kids, or a business centre.
The lounge features several buffet areas and stations that hold hot and cold options, as well as drinks like voss water, soft-drinks and coffee. There are also some dedicated bar setups.
Located around the buffet areas are countless of dining tables with varying types of chairs.
Besides the dedicated buffets and bars there is also a costa store near the entrance of the lounge that features a decent subset of costa signature drinks and cakes.
While I absolutely love the size and different areas of the lounge and for drinks and cold options as well as the costa the catering here is amazing, way better than what most carriers provide at their hub, the hot options during my stay were kind of disappointing and not up to what it used to be, even compared to the outstation lounge at Kuala Lumpur.
WIFI is fast and available everywhere in the lounge, I appreciate that every single table has a sign with the WIFI name and key, so you don’t need to look or ask for it.
While I personally enjoy the lounge at concourse A more, due to some features being of better quality and more branded stations (like the Moet Champagne bar) the Emirates business class lounge in Dubais concourse B is definitely a world class place to spend time before boarding.
