Sorry, I mean the lounge in concourse B or concourse A, concourse A lounges are quite a bit nicer IMO.

Sorry understood your reference to "used to one lounge" as in you're used to always being in the same lounge in DXB

Back on topic I wouldn't pay, no.

When my plat runs out I have a month on my wifes then back to the BJ lounge (if travelling in J, which is unlikely)

I'd pay because I like the F&B offering in the F lounges and the no queues for showers.

(I'm secretly hoping for the double tier miles offer so I can renew and I don't have this issue if in J).

125k is close.

I've done a 5 hour transit in A lounge this week.
Empty shower (though a little bit smelly), and very restful nap in the quiet lounge.
Is it worth the 100 USD ?
Probably yes for long layover and super crowded J lounge and you need to rest.

If you upgrade the lounge from J to F, does it include the complimentary 15-minute Timeless Spa treatment?
