Emirates operates some of the best lounges worldwide, but it doesn’t have its own lounge at Brussels Airport. It’s Business & First Class passengers get access to the Brussels Airlines lounge in Terminal B, called ‘The Suite.’
I experienced the seat before my Emirates Boeing 777 New Business Class Brussels To Dubai. The Suite is a spacious rectangular room with floor-to-ceiling windows with views of the airport apron. The lounge is divided into three different areas:
A working area with desks to work on, a quiet zone reserved for passengers who like to relax in peace, and a reading corner, where you find loads of newspapers and magazines.
Food is available as a buffet in a separate room, next to the main lounge. Some snacks are amended according to when during the day you are visiting.
I visited the lounge during lunchtime, and the snacks comprised olives, cheese, several salads, soup, and a hot dish (meatballs with tomato sauce and rice). Belgian beer (including Leffe and Stella Artois) is also available in the buffet area.
The lounge was recently completely refurbished and upgraded. Compared to the previous lounge, The Suite has doubled in size and can now accommodate 160 visitors. At peak times, the lounge has the ability to expand and accommodate 100 extra guests.
Belgian spirit is reflected in ‘The Suite’ through Belgian beers, Belgian media, Belgian culinary specialties, and impressions of the surrealist art of René Magritte.
While the lounge is decent, it does not come close to the quality of lounges that Emirates operates at select airports across the globe. We hope that one day the Dubai-based carrier will open its own lounge at Brussels Airport.
