Dubai airport experience

Can anyone take me from kerb side to boarding gate, via the fist lounge as a QFPFF. How far ahead can you check in, are their express lanes thought security/immigration, what not to miss, any tips ect….Thanks for your efforts in responding.

I know that certain hotels offer the service you want when arrving, not sure about departing. As a QF Plat there is really no need for express departure services. The EK check in for F is generally empty, immigration a breeze (not many people and enough officers to process your passport) the security guys are busy looking at their phone and do not even glance at the monitor when you put through your bag and when flying on an A380 you will arrive in teh terminal / F lounge (the building is basically one big lounge). The only drawback you might have is that when boarding from the Emirates terminal you have to take an elevator down to departures and the business class lounge is one level up from first, which means that once the elevator goes down it is full with business class people leaving no space for F class passengers. If you are not on an A380 service, the "old" terminal from where other EK flights depart has basically the same set up, although you have to find your way to the lounge through "the masses". No big deal though. When time comes to board walk to the gate and proceed to the front (they have a seperate premium passengers queue).
