Aug 02, 2017: Emirates’ newly refurbished A380 Onboard Lounge has made its operational debut on a flight to Kuala Lumpur, marking the 9th anniversary of Emirates’ award-winning Airbus A380 service.
The most recent makeover of the lounge, inspired by private yacht cabins, features a more intimate and social area. The exclusive lounge accommodates 26 guests and serves the finest wines from around the world. The six wines on offer differ by destination but a champagne offering of Moët & Chandon or Veuve Clicquot is always available.
Emirates has over 6,000 crew trained as mixologists who can whip up 14 cocktails such as its signature Bloody Mary or a non-alcoholic Apple Spritzer. The lounge stocks fine spirits such as Hennessy XO Cognac and Chivas Regal 18 year old Scotch whisky. It also serves over 18 different bar snacks, the most popular of which are the smoked salmon bagels and fresh fruit skewers.
The menu also includes juices, Illy coffee and several varieties of tea from Dilmah. At the back of the lounge, there is a 55 inch LCD screen for giving the latest flight information, or live TV broadcasts of the latest news or sports updates. Emirates has also recently expanded its Wi-Fi offering to give patrons of the lounge who are Emirates Skywards members free Wi-Fi throughout their flight.
