Seating area at Emirates Heathrow lounge

Emirates Lounge Heathrow

Customer protection guarantee

Last week I was able to enjoy the Emirates lounge at Heathrow before checking out their Airbus A380 product (more on this next week!). Emirates business and first passengers are invited to use the lounge for free. Emirates travellers in economy are able to upgrade their experience and use the lounge for £100p/p. The 430 capacity Emirates lounge is a great way to pass time at the airport before boarding your flight to Dubai or beyond, here’s why.

Peace and Tranquility

Sit back and relax in the open and serene atmosphere awash with marble, gold accents, lavish materials and Rolex clocks. Armchairs are wide, robust and incredibly comfortable. Help yourself to a drink and some reading material from the widely varying rack and settle under a warmly lit table lamp. On the other hand, you may just prefer to unwind infront of the televisions. Grab yourself one of the armchairs by the floor to ceiling windows for a prime bit of plane spotting. However, be warned, these go quick!

Alternatively, you may wish to make the most of the peace and quiet in the working area. Although all armchairs are within easy reach of power outlets for personal laptops, the Emirates lounge also provide a desk area with five computers and a printing facility.

Be Bowled Over by the Food

It is difficult to restrain from eating everything off the menu at the Emirates lounge in Heathrow. In-house chef’s put out a colourful array of foods which are completely self-serve. The menu rotates monthly however on this occasion we were spoilt with curry’s, rice, traditional homely pies and meats, sautéed veg and creamy mashed potato. For lighter bites you might instead opt for artisan bread, dips and crudités, salads, olives or seafood. Fresh fruit, cakes and cheeses made up the options for dessert.

Indulge in fresh, healthy detox juices or unwind with a self-served cocktail. A small but ample bar provides a selection of wines, beer, spirits and mixers with ice and garnishes. There are plenty of soft drinks and of course the option for tea, coffee or hot chocolate.

To be able to give an all rounded review of the food service I intended to pick up three courses, along with appetizers. I nibbled at some crudités dunked in a yoghurty dip at an attempt to be healthy and washed this down with a detox juice. The goats cheese, beetroot and quinoa salad I picked up to start was divine. I followed this with a creamy lentil dal, some rice and garlic sautéed spinach which was equally delicious. Try as I might, I failed to make it to dessert as I had so hoped!

Other Facilities at the Emirates Lounge Heathrow

We know that some business travellers are constantly on the go. As soon as one meeting ends another is to begin. As a result, you may lack the time to stop and refresh. Even so, arriving at the airport early to await your flight is inevitable and as an Emirates lounge guest you can kill two birds with one stone and make use of the shower facilities during the wait.

As well as the already mentioned bar and buffet, showers, working and reading areas there is also a prayer room. Undeniably, one of the best features of the lounge is direct boarding access. The Emirates lounge at Heathrow is open between 05.30 and 10.30, catering for all six daily flights out of Heathrow.

What Our Clients Say

Saving our customers time and money

Creative Resins has been at the forefront of decorative glass technology for over 30 years. When Louise contacted us to help with a trip to Oman, we discovered that the company had been using an airline’s website to book direct, paying in excess of £5,000 per trip in Business Class. Using our negotiated fares on this one flight YourTravel saved over £1000 per trip. Upon further investigation and a year’s great relationship, we delved into the companies travel policies and booking habits. We found that travel was often booked at the last minute and there was no one in authority to keep a watchful eye over what was being booked and where. We then worked with Louise to create passenger profiles for all of Creative Resins travellers including details such as preferred seat numbers, meals and airlines – we also set in place cabin restrictions (who can and can’t travel in an upgraded travel class). We then looked at the company’s calendar for the coming year, estimating when and where they would need to book travel and agreed that Your Travel would be proactive in trying to get confirmed travel dates from 4 weeks prior to the trip dates. This created a stress-free booking system that took budget and organisational pressure from the senior management, knowing they would always be working with a cost-effective travel budget. This lead to a reduced travel spend of just over 16% without cost-cutting and maintaining a high level of service.

‘’Working with Your Travel Corporate has been an enlightening experience, we were wasting money on travel and working with John and the team was very easy indeed. Everything is taken care of on every trip and we get a level of service that just can’t be achieved by the bigger travel agents, being treated as a valued client and not just another customer is fantastic!’’ Louise Bollom, Director
