Itís enough time to transfer but not enough to enjoy time in a lounge.

Your best hope of getting any meaningful lounge time would be a combination of early arrival and delayed departure.

Can it be done? Yes.
Would I do it? No

Not unless I had a good Plan B.

Thanks, for the reply. I have not bought my ticket yet. I will buy the ticket with a later Departure which will give me more time at DXB. This way enjoy the lounge.
DXB / BOM , EK has 5 flights / day.

A far better idea Why rush and get stressed when you can sit and enjoy a nice lounge for a couple of hours? Even better if you drink

If you live/work/transit through DXB or BOM long enough you will start drinking

I also have a 3 hour layover arrive at 820am depart 1120 am. I want to use the lounge called [email protected] near some tapas bar but I heard their showers are a bit of a walk. Is it enough time?

Does DXB not have any transit security anymore for connecting pax?
My last 2 flights through DXB we didnít have to go through any, both flights landed at concourse A.

It did a week ago, I believe they are trialling removing it or may have now removed it outright of your flights have been after 4th Aug when I was last there.

DOH has a randomised no-security program where some flights get to skip it

That's great news! I assume US (and probably UK) flights will have an extra gate security check? So, not so good for point-to-point travellers.

my first flight was from LGW mid July and 2nd flight from SIN 10th August. Both without security.

As an additional reference point: my flight on 24 July ex AMS, connecting to CPT, did have transit security. We arrived at a bus gate and that may be an additional variable.

I have an award booking for my elderly mum and me. We’re on EK433 which is scheduled to land at 1300 before transferring to EK25 which departs at 1455. She doesn’t walk quickly, so I’m concerned about the short connection time. How can I request some sort of mobility assistance?

I may just be looking in the wrong place. It’s a QF award, but I can’t see anything on the EK or QF website under manage my booking. We’re traveling in J if that makes any difference. What will EK do if we mis connect?

Thanks. I’ll give them a call. I’d just assumed it could be done online, as I was able to do so on a previous trip on BA.

I clearly need to learn more about Twitter, too. I didn’t know you could message people in twitter. :-)
