Emirates Lounge Meetup Thread

In hopes of having more of them- eightblack said there wasn't one of these, so I should start one. Might also help those of you Golds in Y.

Format:

DD/MM/YYYY HH:mm-HH:mm Airport three letter code lounge type (EKL if Emirates Business or combined lounge, EFL if a First lounge, LCL if Local Contract Lounge) (if you are willing to help someone get into the lounge, say "happy to help" and your flight number)

So:

01/01/2001 12:00-13:00 DXB EKL eponymous_coward (happy to help, EK 1)

Keep in mind that I believe you have to be on the same flight to accompany someone into the lounge who has privileges, and you don't...

I won't be doing many of these, since I don't think I will be flying EK very often, but hey, figured I would start this out.

One can barely use the lounge if one is Gold AND actually flying EK on the day!

Is it possible that we could use other threads for discussion and save this for arranging meetings?

Officially "No". But "unofficially "Yes". You just need to know the right people

Can we stick to the format suggested by the OP. It'll make it easier all round.
