Alternatives to outstation EK lounges

With most (all?) of the outstation lounges closed at the moment, are EK offering alternative lounges to eligible passengers? If so, please post here and I'll create a Wiki.

I have flown two recent MAN DXB in last three weeks and used the Aspire lounge despite being a J customer via my credit card privileges......the lounge is several weeks from opening if not longer.

Doubt EK is offering anything directly, will probably need to use offers from other providers like priority pass if they are open.

I'd be curious to know which lounge Emirates are using at Heathrow T2?

Probably only give it to the status passengers in Y class, as they are the most needy

More likely they give it to passengers who actually fly regularly with the airline, rather than arm chair FT experts who fly once a year and then use that experience to offer opinions for the following 12 months!

Not sure whar your point is. I've done six flights in the last four weeks. And if you fly F, why do you care about status anyway?
