Melbourne Emirates Lounge

22 May 2016

First of many meals

The limo service to Melbourne airport and the Emirates lounge

I am travelling back in time, but during this reverse time travel I still get fed meals as if its normal time.
This starts with a pre dinner dinner in the Emirates lounge here in Melbourne airport, a place I have not been to before.
It is significantly better than the Qantas business lounge but not as good as the Qantas first lounge, main reasons being, no sit down restaurant service with silver service and a menu, and no free spa treatments - both things I need a lot of.

My ticket involves a free limo transfer from my home to the airport, which insisted on being 3 hours before the flight and then turned up 30 minutes early. It turned out to be a Mercedes work van painted black with bench seating, but it was 'free'.
Melbourne airport is currently being renovated entirely, and there are no flights leaving at the same time as mine, so the place was completely deserted. Customs had no line at all.

Apparently I get internet on the plane between here and Dubai, I predict that will be frustration as the internet in the Emirates lounge is port 80 only which means I have to hot spot my phone to do anything on the internet as opposed to just browse web pages about Kim Kardashians big ass breaking the internet.

Now full of dinner, I might go for a walk and check out the building sites where shops and restaurants used to be.
