Flying to/from Dubai on Emirates? Awesome! Not seated in Business or First Class? Me neither. Don't fret, because I have some super exciting, just-in news: If you're an airport lounge junkie (like myself) and an Emirates Skywards Blue member (you literally just sign up online - no purchase necessary), now you can pay $100 to access Emirates INSANE lounges at Dubai International Airport regardless of your class of travel!
This just in from the Emirates website:
If you’re an Emirates Skywards Blue member, you can now pay US$100 to access Emirates lounges at Dubai International airport regardless of your class of travel, and so can your family and friends who are traveling on the same Emirates flight with you, for an additional charge.* If you’re a Silver or Gold member who already enjoys complimentary lounge access, you can invite guests traveling on the same flight with you to join you for an additional charge,* even if they’re traveling in Economy Class. And to make your journey extra special, you can purchase an upgrade to the First Class Lounge in Dubai.
Now, I don't know about you, but that just may be the best news I've heard since booking my flight to the UAE!
Until we eat - and fly - again,
