The Finest First-Class Airline Lounges

Today, I’m going to show you my favourite first-class airline lounges, from the beautiful to the down right outrageous. I hope that you enjoy salivating over these with me!


Emirates first-class A380 passengers who check-in at the airline’s dedicated first-class check-in concourse can also use a luxurious dedicated lounge. The space features rooms with chaise lounges, multiple dining stations, a cigar bar and the opportunity to board the aircraft directly from the lounge itself!

British Airways

These most exclusive lounges are referred to as Concorde Rooms and are available only to first-class passengers in London and New York. The London lounge, shown here, includes private cabanas with day beds and en-suites.

Air France

Air France first-class passengers departing from Paris enjoy exclusive access to the La Première lounge. It offers guest a menu devised by Alain Ducasse and access to the Biologique Recherche spa.

Thai Airways

Thai Airways first-class passengers travelling from Bangkok’s Suvarnabhumi International Airport can enjoy massages at the carrier’s Royal Orchid Spa. Passengers here can enjoy full-length treatments including an hour-long signature Royal Thai Massage.

Etihad Airways

The newly opened flagship Etihad Airways’ first-class lounge has gone all out. Alongside a beautiful restaurant and two bars, travelers also have the use of a spa, barbers, nail salon, fitness room and relaxation zone. Staff such as a butler, concierge and nanny, are all on hand to ensure everything is luxuriously wonderful!
