PRINT HEAD: Lounge Check
PRINT BLURB: Stephanie Holmes visits the Emirates Business Class Lounge at Concourse A, Dubai International Airport
The lowdown: Dubai Airport’s Terminal 3 has three separate concourses (A, B, and C), each with their own Business Class lounge. I was flying out of Concourse A, which offers direct access to the departure gates from the lounge itself. This means you can make the most of its luxurious facilities right up to the very last minute.

The greeting: Professional and efficient. There’s a huge lobby area with a range of desks and immaculate staff.
First impression: After a seven-hour flight from London Stansted, and a 16 hour flight ahead of me, this lounge was heaven, taking me away from the bustle of Dubai airport’s sprawl.
Who’s there: The entire world. A quick glance at the Departures screen showed there were connections from Terminal 3 to Casablanca, Kuwait, Rio, Tokyo, Geneva, New York and seemingly everywhere in between.
