Leaving Luggage at Dubai Airport?We have a stopover in Dubai on our way to Europe and I'm going to do some shopping. I had thought I'd be able to just leave the suitcase at the hotel and stay there on the way back for one night and collect the suitcase. Unfortunately the return stopover even though it is for 8 hours is considered a transit and I cannot leave the airport. (Or even if we could there is not time to stay in a hotel) Does anyone know if it is possible to leave a suitcase anywhere at the airport with Emirates or a luggage locker and collect it on the way back. I have tried emailling Emirates but they haven't replied.
They encourage 3 day stop overs and allow more luggage allowance if you do that but I don't want to lug a suitcase around Europe. .
I don't like to ask the people we know there to bring the case to the airport. We arrive in after 10pm and leave again about 8am in the morning.
Any suggestions appreciated.

2Thanks for the reply. I understood left luggage to mean luggage that you had forgotten to collect when you arrived in a country. in other words left behind. So is there a charge for leaving luggage here do you know? It doesn't appear on the Dubai Airport website. We want to bring back a twin pushchair that we cannot buy in NZ so as you can imagine we don't want to cart this around Europe.
