Review Emirates Airlines Kuala Lumpur to Barcelona Economy A380

After visiting the rather disappointing Plaza Premium lounge Kuala Lumpur I was even kind of looking forward to my 18 hours trip on Emirates A380 economy to Barcelona via Dubai.

Maybe it was a mix of the fact that the lounge was not much better than an economy flight and that I just wanted to be done with the trip but in the end the trip was still pretty decent. Now I won’t start flying these distances for fun in economy but if I have to Emirates is definitely a solid option.

Emirates Business Class Lounge Dubai Concourse B

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.

Review Emirates Boing 777 Business Dubai to Kuala Lumpur

After my rather unsatisfying flight to Dubai I wasn’t specifically looking forward to the return flight on Emirates Boing 777-300ER, since the business class product does not even feature direct aisle access on every seat.

Maybe it was due to my low expectations, the really nice time in the Emirates lounge in Dubais Terminal 3 at DXB or the fact this this 777 was equipped with the updated business class seat, but I ended up enjoying this flight a lot more than the A380 trip.

Review Emirates Business Class A380 Kuala Lumpur to Dubai

After my very pleasant stay in The Emirates Lounge Kuala Lumpur I headed to the gate for my flight to Dubai (DXB) shortly after boarding was announced in the lounge. Kuala Lumpur (KUL) has one A380 gate in the satellite building, which is used by Emirates. The boarding process was chaotic as usual in KUL, security was amazingly slow and when the flight went to final call there were still around 200 people to clear.

The A380 gate has a dedicated Business/First lane for security, which was of course not staffed. When they realised they wouldn’t manage to finish on time they opened it, but rather than using it as it is dedicated they just shuffled everyone to there, no matter of class ticketed.

Emirates airlines lounge Frankfurt

As part of my recent trip to Dubai (DXB) from Frankfurt (FRA) I opted for the obvious choice: Emirates airlines. Emirates flies to multiple destinations in Germany and features one of my favourite business class products in the skies – when it comes to their A380 fleet.

While Emirates is almost every time not the most economical choice they still manage to convince with a very nice ground service as they operate their own lounges in several airports and, as long as you don’t get one of their outdated 777 aircraft, an equally comfortable experience onboard.

Lufthansa lounge Dubai international airport

On my return flight from Dubai (DXB) to Kuala Lumpur (KUL) via Bangkok (BKK) with Thai Airways I was given the choice between the Marhaba lounge and the Lufthansa lounge in Dubai international airport. I researched prior to check-in when I found only the Marhaba lounge invitation and saw a lot of rather bad reviews about it being crowded and little food spread of low quality. So I wasn’t exactly thrilled about going there.

Upon check-in I was informed that I could also use the Lufthansa lounge, since Thai airways is star alliance same as Lufthansa that made sense. I guess Marhaba as a contract lounge is just their main lounge since they don’t want to put everyone in the smaller Lufthansa lounge.

Thai Lounge Kuala Lumpur international airport

On my recent flight from Kuala Lumpur (KUL – KLIA) to Dubai (DXB) via Bangkok (BKK) with Thai Airways I was invited to use the Thai Lounge located in the satellite building of KL international Airport Terminal 1.

KL international airport is located some 50 minutes outside of Kuala Lumpur and can be reached by car/taxi or the KLIA ekspress train from KL sentral station. It is divided in two terminals, KLIA which is used by all full service carriers and features extensive duty free shops, restaurants and airport lounges and KLIA2 which is like a mall with an integrated LCC terminal (mostly used by AirAsia).
