This was the Emirates First Class Lounge by the A gates. It is massive in size on the upper level of the terminal around gate 24.
After the check in counter there is a quiet area with ponds and water fountains where you can relax to the soothing sounds.
Past that area are seating areas, all designed with different seating and decoration.
The quiet rooms allow for some horizontal rest, however with just a curtain for separation it’s not that private and one can assume not that quiet if a number of people are sleeping.
The lounge is a long rectangular shape with seating on the outside and staff rooms such as kitchens on the inside.
I made my way to the sit down dining area. Here you can order off a menu or use the buffet, or both.
The morning menu. If appears this is a daytime and there probably is a dinner menu later in the day.
I kept my order to simple Eggs Benedict and they were excellent.
The various buffet stations were impressive with a huge variety of items.
The lounge even had stand alone stations for other cuisines like a Japanese sushi bar and Mediterranean specials.
Encased near the smoking area were displays of various vintage liquors and wines.
Of course showers are available.
Quite an impressive destination list. How many continents can you count?
And entrance back into the terminal.
This first class lounge, while probably a step below that of Lufthansa’s FCT, is still an excellent lounge for meals and relaxation between flights.
