Distinction, Class Distinction

I travel with Emirates Airlines because they provide direct services to most places and their service is better than most.

Achieving Silver Status on Skywards or any other airline is a great deal for me, I get to use the lounge.

Emirates Airlines is a classy airline except when it gets to its lounges. They have one for First Class, Business Class and Silver Skywards members, and they do not mix. In Hamburg Silver Members are not allowed to use the lounge. In Dubai is the same, one has to walk for almost 15 minutes either way to get to the Silver Skywards lounge which is in Terminal 1.

I am not a populist, but really Emirates Airlines, are we so bad we are not allowed to mix with your darlings. I know the answer would be no space, but then why did you build Terminal 3 which was too small the day it opened.

No matter what the excuse, I feel like I am discriminated against.


  1. Well, Emirates staff at Sao Paulo are great, my bag was taken by mistake by a passenger. They tracked him down and got it back in less than one hour, Kudos.

  2. I love that airline. My kids' first question when we travel is whether we're going with Emirates. But yes, the lounge thing is a bit of a disconnect.

    Enjoy Sao Paulo!

  3. Emirates is my Favorite Airline!!!

  5. I have no problem with EK, they are a fine airline to fly with. I just don't like their lounge policy
