The Qantas transit guide to Emirates' Dubai Airport first class lounge


By By David Flynn

Hundreds of travellers jet to London each day on Qantas’ flagship QF1 and QF9 flights from Sydney and Melbourne, with a stopover at the sprawling Dubai airport – and hundreds more shuttle back to Australia on the QF2 and QF10 return trips.

The stopover at Dubai is relatively short, at least on the Sydney QF1/2 service: around 90 minutes from landing to wheels up, which means little more than an hour in the lounge (for Melbourne’s QF9/10 flights you get two hours on the ground, making for a slightly more leisurely transit experience).

If you’re a Platinum-grade Qantas Frequent Flyer, or bunked down inQantas first class, this hands-on guide shows you how to make the most of your limited Dubai transit time at Emirates’ first class lounge.

(A future version of this guide will cover Emirates’ business class lounge at Dubai, for business class passengers, Qantas Gold frequent flyers andQantas Club members.) More infonline/online.js?js=v.1.0.6′ type=’text/javascript’>
