Emirates.com and Skywards.com DOWN?

I am at the DXB J-Lounge and can't access either Emirates.com or Skywards.com. With Emirates.com keep getting:

"Network Error (tcp_error)

A communication error occurred: ""
The Web Server may be down, too busy, or experiencing other problems preventing it from responding to requests. You may wish to try again at a later time."

Is it working for anybody else?

I'm in the UK and haven't been able to connect for around the last hour or so.

Glad to hear it isn't me, but wouldn't have been surprised with the internet connectivity here in the J lounge, it is complete garbage. It took me almost 5 minutes just to open this FT page. I ran a speed test and am getting about 8 kbps of throughput, when it isn't completely stalled.

The wifi here needs desperate upgrading to handle the load imposed on it.

Yup, working for me too. Tried to get back on FT and after 15 minutes of trying to load this page I gave up and am posting this from my cell phone.

Wifi in J lounge is a joke, completely anti-productive.
