Article in the SMH about it.

Jumbo lounge for Emirates' superjumbo - News - Travel - smh.com.au

(4 pics in the article)

Looks nice, but nothing special - this looks more like my Grandmothers loungeroom!

Being able to board direct from the lounge is a nice feature, agree about the decor though!

So who's going to be the first AFF'er to give a review?

I've been thinking about a J one way/return on Emirates to Auckland from Brisbane, but can't do it in the near future due to other commitments.

All i'll say about the lounge after visiting on Sunday on my way to Auckland is that it show cases why Qantas has lost my business on trans Tasman routes ever since Emirates entered the market.

It's a travesty to even attempt to compare Emirates lounge facilities in Brisbane against Qantas let alone the quality of the product inside the plane.

The lounge area is large, it has great views all around. The food is still the same as the old lounge location but it was superior to Qantas. Best of all it is peaceful.

Hit post too quickly:

Setup is a single escalator up to the lounge, which switches direction down when flights are boarding. Stairs parallel to the escalator along with elevators nearby.


Through the reception and to the left is the bag storage area. Ahead and to the right is the business center with adequate computers available. The downside is that in the morning the sun shines in such a way that if you face towards the sun you can't see your screen and if it's behind the glare makes it difficult as well.

Through the reception and ahead is a bar area as well as lounge chairs all the way around.

Dining area has ample room.

Facing tarmac there are lots more seating and plenty of TVs throughout the lounge and the doors to the direct boarding of planes.
