Most airport lounges have similar amenities, and some can be a bit dull or way overdue for an upgrade. But that’s not the case with some top-rated airlines including Emirates, Air France and SWISS. These airlines have one of the world’s best airport lounges that provide you with top-of-the-line luxury experience that may make you miss your flight! Their modern look and feel, combined with excellent services, are what makes them the best. Let’s take a look at what you can experience at each one (and maybe some of you reading this already have).
Emirates First Class Lounge, Dubai
Emirates is definitely one of the most luxurious airlines (think Private Suite on their A380s), and their First Class Lounge in Dubai Airport falls nothing short of amazing. Passengers can enjoy a variety of amenities, including their Wine Cellar or Cigar Bar where you can sip on a refreshing drink while you relax and wait for your flight. Or, you can grab a bite to eat at their fine dining restaurant, where international dishes are made with the freshest ingredients.
If you’re looking to do a bit more relaxing, head over to get an “express treatment” (back massage, foot rub, manicure, haircut, or blow dry), and then to the dedicated quiet area where you can catch a few zzz’s. Need to do some work? They have plenty of areas to do that too.

Air France La Première Lounge, Paris
Air France also has one of the world’s best airport lounges located in Charles De Gaulle Airport. Passengers can choose dishes created by Chef Alain Ducasse, or read a book, article or newspaper in their library. If you have work to do, there are private areas to get down to business, but if you want something away from your laptop, you can enjoy a personalized spa treatment (facials and bodywork) at the Biologique Recherché center.

SWISS First Lounge, Zurich
SWISS Airlines is another favorite airline of ours, and so is their lounge located in Zurich Airport. Passengers who come to this lounge are treated with the utmost care in a luxurious setting. The lounge features two hotel rooms, a conference room, mini-suites, a champagne bar and two restaurants. Want to get some fresh air? Head over to their terrace that overlooks the Swiss Alps, where you can sit and sip on your good old Bloody Mary while watching planes take off and land.
The dining experience is also top-of-the-line. Go ahead, indulge in a 5-star à la carte menu, and after you’ve had some food and wine, go to their working or relaxation spaces before it’s time to board your flight. Want to take a tour? Here’s a quick video that takes you through the lounge, highlighting everything it has to offer to passengers in SWISS First, First Class Lufthansa and HON Circle.
The world’s best airport lounges are an exceptional experience, and each one has won a few awards as well. If you’re looking for a luxurious adventure, then make sure that you check out Emirates, Air France or SWISS Airlines lounges on one of your upcoming trips. You won’t be disappointed!
