The World’s Best Airport Lounges (Part 1)

Etihad Airways First Class Lounge – Abu Dhabi

Only very recently opened (2016) the Etihad Airways First Class Lounge in Abu Dhabi is as lavish and full of grandeur as an airport lounge can get. Etihad explained this with the phrase ‘a reimagined lounge experience’. The world’s most elite travellers were the main focus for the design of the lounge. Boasting a tasting menu designed by the chefs from the gilded Emirates Palace Hotel and featuring dishes curated by a former Shangri La and Ritz Carlton Head Chef it’s clear that Etihad are taking the dining element of their lounge very seriously. Feedback from their most frequent flyers has brought about the inclusion of a fitness room and a Six Senses Spa.

However, the ‘show-stopper’ element of their lounge is without doubt The Residence. With its own permanent butler, this facility features a vast lounge area, prayer room, library, marble bathroom and shower room and a beautiful dining area offering a completely bespoke menu.

In a word…Stunning.

Emirates First Class Lounge – Dubai

Still in its infancy, the Emirates First Class Lounge in Dubai (Terminal 3) offers several amenities to its guests including; a cigar bar, fine dining with fresh ingredients and shower spas. But the area of this lounge that sets it apart from the competition has to be the wine cellar, Le Clos. The expert sommeliers guide guests through the best vintages to indulge upon before their flight. After, relaxing and unwinding in this fantastic lounge, make use of the lounge’s direct boarding allowing guests to step straight onboard the flight.

The British Airways Concorde Room located at Terminal 5 is one of the most established airport lounges.

What Our Clients Say

Saving our customers time and money

I cannot recommend Aiden and YTC’s services enough. Whenever I phone, whether it be Aiden or another one of his colleagues, they always answer the phone enthusiastically and are incredibly helpful. I work for some incredibly demanding people and no matter how many times I change the criteria and ask Aiden to reprice the options, he remains unflappable and calm under pressure – even when I am not!!

On a financial note we have other agencies (one now since we dropped a well known one for completely messing up some flights and for not coming back to us quickly) that we used to use, but to be honest I don’t even bother with the others anymore seeing as Aiden’s prices are so much cheaper and detailed.  Not only does he try and find the best and cheapest option, but they are always cheaper than the competitors.

Aiden and his colleagues literally take the hassle and drama out of some chaotic and difficult itineraries. Thank you and long may it continue.
