Guests in Emirates Lounge

Hi all,

am very new in here, so please don't kill me regarding my question.
I am pretty sure this was already answered, searched for it a while but couldn't find a definite answer.

I am EK Gold member and glad about all the worldwide lounges and regularly making use of it.
I know, I can bring a guest a long with me in the DXB J Lounge with gold. But never used it as I am normally flying alone.

I will have a Y flight soon with wifey (has Family Membership) and wanted to know if I could take her into any other EK lounge as well (e.g. HAM or DUS)?

Thanks in advance.

Hi there,

Golds can bring 1 guest into the entire EK lounge network regardless of class of travel.

Cheers,

Christicker

What if you are Gold flying in J? Does that have any impact on the number of guests you can bring in?

No only one, same goes if you are flying F.
Don't forget, they need to be on the same flight. Depending on the lounge dragon (there is an Eastern European one in F who is tough), you can also bring guests in who are not on the same flight.

What if you are flying F or J and are not Gold (Silver, Blue or non-member), can you bring a guest into the the lounge travelling on same flight but in Y?

Some exceptions

Even though Golds are generally allowed a guest no matter class of travel across the globe, there are some lounges that aren't operated by EK which refuse to grant you that right.

One noteable lounge dragon was in Houston the other day and refused me a guest even though I was Gold and travelling Business!

Of course not every lounge lets you in unless you are flying with that airline or the airline that is affiliated with the lounge.

Or are you saying you were trying to enter the EK affiliated lounge (i.e. run by someone else) with a valid Business ticket and they didnt let you in?

The IAH lounge is a contract lounge shared with QR, so that might explain it.

Pax 1 and 2 fly JFK-DXB in F

Same day:
Pax 1 is in F DXB-MRU and Pax 2 is in Y (same flight)

Is there any lounge which could be used by both pax during the layover in DXB?

I assume that both pax don't have any status on EK. Access to lounges and the ability to guest depends on the flight that you are Departing from DXB. The flight that you are arriving on does not matter.

Though I have not done it myself , others have checked with the lounge agents at DXB and have confirmed that any F passenger is allowed to guest in another passenger into the Emirates F lounge provided that both are travelling on the same flight( irrespective of the status of both passengers)

Warning: AFAIK the above info is not there on the skywards website but is based on the info gathered from other FTers on this forum.

I've asked the lounge dragons at the DXB F lounge and they have mentioned that they allow an F pax 1 guest irrespective of the status of either pax, so long as they are on the same flight.

can you bring one guest, leave alone maybe 10 min later and bring another one? of course that will only work if the lounge dragon is different.

No, they scan and mark your BP.
