The best part of going on a flight is the time spent in the Airline Lounge at the airport before boarding the plane.
I just love being handed my boarding pass with the lounge invitation attached, I don’t waste a minute looking at duty free shops, instead I head as fast as I can to the lounge. One of the best I can recommend is the Emirates Airlines Lounge at JFK New York, where I found copious amounts of Veuve Clicquot and a fabulous selection of food – what more do you need to steady those pre-flight nerves.
My husband loves the Emirates Airlines Lounge in Dubai, as they have a large freezer packed with his favourite Haagen-Dazs ice cream. He is a non drinker, so no champagne for him. I know what I would prefer.
