My wife and I have a first class trip with Emirates from Hong Kong to Paris via Dubai coming up later this month and I was wondering if anyone had any advice on:
1. Which lounge would you recommend in Hong Kong between 4pm and 7pm - Emirates or QANTAS
2. We have a 5 hour layover in Dubai in the middle of the night (11pm to 4am). Has anyone used the quiet rooms in the concourse A lounge for a quick nap, or are there better spots to rest?

1. You can access both; my personal preference is for EK.

Question to all: if the flight for HKG-DXB has a QF flight number but is Emirates tin, would the FC BP allow access to the Cathay Pacific lounges in HKG? If so, they would be great choices for DVH259.

Cathay will not accept QF ticket on EK metal. it is outside of the OW rules.

Usually to use OW lounge, the flight has to be operated (metal) and marketed (flight number) by OW. So, no access on EK metal.

1. I find the Emirates lounge more crowded than the QF ones at early arvo since there aren't many QF departues then. So I would go to the Qantas lounge for the peace and quiet as well as the 'a la carte' style bbq pork rice with Hong Kong style milk tea.
Thanks for the answers re access to the Cathay Pacific lounges. Looks like DVH259 will have to split his time between the QF and EK lounges only.
Thanks everyone for the replies, will definitely stop by both EK & QF lounges in HKG

Have you selected seats yet? I'm doing a similar flight later in the year on the A380 and would like to know best seats for travelling with my wife. Centre seats have the privacy screen but from what I've read are best for couples as they still allow you chat, etc. I've also read that on arrival in DXB head straight to First Class Lounge and book a massage at the Timeless Spa. If you go and sus out the food and seating first all the available spots will be taken up..
We've selected the middle seats from HKG to DXB and windows seats from DXB-CDG just to try the different arrangements.
