Flew out of Kuwait Airport yesterday evening, on Emirates. I went up to the new lounge that is run by National Aviation Services, having remembered that I was once previously not allowed in but couln't remember if at the time I was on Emirates to Dubai or MEA to Beirut.

Anyway, I went up in the elevator and arrived at the empty lounge only to be told that Emirates passengers could not use this lounge, but instead the ugly tent-shaped one below or the crappy one they opened last year near the VIP hall.

Needless to say, I gave the poor lounge hostess a piece of my mind. I told her (very loudly) that they should put a sign outside indicating which airlines are allowed access to the lounge. That way they would not have to regularly turn away clueless passengers because that would be just downright rude!

زفيتها خوش زفة

  12. The lounge is excellent but the reception staff are absolutely clueless and would be better used in some of Sicily's almond fields. As a OneWorld Emerald I have been turned away twice, but the second time I had read the info and went to seek the aid of some BA employee, who told them that OneWorld is all the same and please let him in.

    Needless to say, I was refused again the third time.
