Emirates First class lounge access
Questions on EK first class lounge access:
1) If you connect from 1st longhaul to business shorthaul (e.g. JFK-DXB on F and DXB-CAI in J), do you get access to first class lounge?
2) If you are connecting from an a380 to a 777, can you use the a380 terminal first class lounge where you arrive? Or will you be forced to go to the other terminal where the 777 flight is departing?
I cant answer your first question but you can certainly try to get access by showing your F boarding pass.
For the second question, I dont think EK will force you to use a lounge in a specific concourse of Terminal 3. However, which lounge you should spend time in should really depend on the length of your layover and your departure gate. If you have a short layover and are departing from concourse B or C, it wont be worth getting to and from the concourse A lounges since it’ll involve taking a train between A and B. Furthermore, EK F/J lounges at DXB are almost all the same – ie the EK J lounge in A will have the same amenities in B, F lounge in A will be the same as B – it’s just much more expansive in A.
