Hi all, I have a weird itinerary that necessitates stay in Dubai. My flight out leaves at 4AM on the 10th of September, my hotel has a late check out of 6PM (on the 9th of September).

Be careful of using the sleep rooms at Dubai lounges. There is a reputation of bags being looted while you're napping.

I’m actually staying in Al Ain, so I’d have to take all my bags from Al Ain to a hotel in Dubai, check in, probably not have any sleep, then take them all back to the airport anyway (I’m never asleep before midnight). I might do it but if I can stay in the lounge with free food and drink and just a spot to nap for an hour or so I’ll be happy.
Fair enough. But if you have already explored Al-Ain, just check out at regular time and get to hotel in Dubai. IIRC there really is not much to do in Al-Ain (unless visiting family/friends). But as above, you seem to be able to check bags earlier.

who's had their bag "looted" while in an F lounge?
