New terminal / lounges in DXB
Not so much of a question – but for awareness…!
As a regular QR flier from DXB-UK I echo Lucky’s review previously on the pretty average lounge that existed for premium class/Frequent Fliers… however… the new terminal is now open…!! I’m sure Lucky will review it at some point, but a few quick pro’s and cons:
– Two lounges – 1 QR Premium Lounge, and one for all other airlines! The QR premium one is a HUGE upgrade on the last – featuring the expected high levels of QR Premium service – it’s design is similar to the lounge at LHR just smaller, but features a much more extensive circular food/beverage bar almost identical again to LHR and much upgraded seating and restrooms… it’s leagues above the old one – and is available to QR Frequent Fliers too in economy.
– Its brand new – so clean lines all around – new duty free, and new train service to arrivals in terminal 1.
– Biggest one is that there’s always been quite a walk on arrivals and departures, now you take that walk – wait up to 10 minutes for a train, then have to walk the old original distance again – add in the usual immigration queues and it can take 1h30 to get out of the airport!
Overall – massive improvement and I’m sure Lucky will be pleased to hear given his recent not so first class experience there in the old lounge!
