Passengers who were able to book certain tickets before the 26th of March under the Emirates Economy Class originating in Bangkok with layovers at the airport in Dubai will be able to access the premium longue normally reserved for customers with business tickets. The travel dates of the airline tickets should be from May 1 until November 30 of this year.
According to a release from the airline company, passengers will be able to use the facility for a maximum of four hours where there are a variety of business services available. The premium longue also offers an open buffet and a full service bar.
