Dubai Emirates Airbus A380 Business Class

23 May 2016

Dubai airport is quite large

The Emirates lounge at Dubai airport

I have never been to Dubai airport before, now I have been. It should be called Emirates airport as the pictures will show.
I was not actually in the airport for long, only 2 hours between flights, but this was enough time to see that it looks a lot like other airports.

The big exception is the Emirates lounge, which is the entire upper level of the airport, with hardly any people in it.

Before very long at all, it was time to board a different A380 to Manchester, a mere 7 hour flight in daylight which flew by....
I think the human brain learns acceptance quickly, I notice it when jogging, the first 5 minutes are hard then you accept you are jogging, on a long flight the first 10 hours are hard, then you accept you are sitting still watching movies.

Having said that, I spent a lot of time at the bar, looking out the windows. The bar is excellent, a big open space, with strangely no customers. The flight was quite empty but the people in their trying to make me cocktails I said I didnt want and did not drink told me its never this empty.

I was not left wondering if there would be scary northerners on the flight, I saw some horrific smiles, and everyone was walking with a limp due to a life of sitting, drinking and gambling.
Its now been many many hours since I left and I am making no sense so I better finish here.
