Emirates already lets economy class passengers pay their way into the airline's flagship business class and first class lounges at Dubai.
Now the Gulf powerhouse and Qantas partner is extending the scheme across its global lounge network, although at this stage not everybody can walk up and wave their credit card to enter the lounge.
But if you're accompanying a Gold or Platinum member of Emirates' Skywards frequent flyer program, you're in with a chance.
Those top-tier travellers are now allowed to pay to bring in bring additional guests "over and above their complimentary guest entitlements" at US$100 each.
Children aged below 12 years will be charged US$50, while infants below two years get in free.
The new scheme applies to Emirates lounges at Auckland, Birmingham, Brisbane, Cape Town, Delhi, Düsseldorf, Frankfurt, Glasgow, Hamburg, Johannesburg, Kuala Lumpur, London Gatwick, London Heathrow, Los Angeles, Manchester, Melbourne, Milan, Munich, New York/JFK, Paris Charles de Gaulle, Perth, San Francisco, Sydney, Tokyo Narita and Zürich.
Rome and Singapore are missing from that list, presumably because both are temporarily closed; other exceptions to the pay-your-way-in rule are Emirates' lounges at Bangkok, Beijing, Colombo, Hong Kong, Istanbul and Shanghai.
Emirates hasn't specified any limit to the number of guests you can pay into the lounge, but says that each paid stay is limited to four hours; all guests will also need to be travelling on a Emirates flight, which includes Emirates codeshare flights operated by Qantas.
