Safely landed in Dubai after a very comfortable flight, a lovely dinner and great cabin crew. We now have a three hour+ stop over. Landed at D8 and connecting flight is from C13. That managed to use up quite a bit of our time negotiating between D and C.
Landed about 10.45pm and eventually found our next gate 40 minutes later!
Had a very fast exit through security, then a series of lifts, escalators, travelators and a train ride, and now we are in C departure area!! Such a huge huge airport!
At least at this hour, it is fairly quiet, not like the hustle and bustle last time we were here when we joined the connecting flight queue instead of exiting the airport!! Realized our mistake before it was too late to turn around and bolt, thank goodness.
Dubai looked magnificent as we flew in with all the lights, and the roads were very busy with traffic. Guess that is the night life here.
Due to depart at 2.30am local time for Singapore. We gained two hours on this flight and will gain another four hours at Singapore. Getting closer to Aussie time!
