Emirates DXB F lounge access when not connecting to F flight

Emirates DXB F lounge access when not connecting to F flight

  1. Anonymous

    Hi Lucky/others,

    I’m booking an EK flight from JFK-DXB-MLE. The DXB-MLE invariably seems to show only Y availability. It’s on a 3-class cabin so I’m hoping F or J availability opens up (I’m looking 330 days out). If not, I’m fine flying in Y because it’s a better connection. However, would I still be able to use the F lounge?

    Assuming you’re connecting same day you should indeed still get access to the first class lounge, as far as I know. Enjoy the trip!

    No. You only get access to the lounge based upon your ticketed class of travel for the DEPARTING flight. If you arrive in F and depart in Y, you are not entitled to any lounge access with Emirates. The only exceptions would be if you have lounge access entitlement via status, or if you are ticketed in F but due to a sold out cabin have to fly in Y instead.

    I would assume that Emirates would allow some arrival lounge? no?

    You’d assume, but sadly they don’t. If you’re departing in Y and have no status, you get no priority benefits even if you arrived in F.

    Ouch, thanks for the correction, Sean. That makes Emirates one of the few airlines which doesn’t grant lounge access based on arriving class of service with a same day connection. Good info to know!
