Trouble with our flights to the United Arab Emirates (UAE)

We were expecting to fly with Lufthansa from Brussels to Dubai via Munich. Our flight was delayed for 30 minutes. Arriving at the gate for a second time, the hostess explained that due to technical problems the flight to Munich was cancelled. We were lucky that we were one of the first to have our flight changed. We departed two hours later with Etihad for a direct flight to Abu Dhabi. What? Not Dubai? Don't worry, there will be a bus waiting for you, it is a short drive through the dessert. The adventure has started.

We gingen vertrekken met Lufthansa van Brussel naar Dubai via München. Onze vlucht werd 30 minuten vertraagd. Toen we voor de tweede keer aan de gate kwamen vertelde de hostess dat de vlucht geannuleerd werd door technische problemen. Daar gaat onze connectie. Gelukkig waren we de eerste die onze vlucht overgeboekt kregen. We vertrokken twee uur later met Etihad voor een directe vlucht naar Abu Dhabi. Wat? Niet naar Dubai? Niet ongerust zijn, er zal een bus op je wachten die je door de woestijn naar Dubai rijd. Het avontuur is begonnen..

  6. I read your story and I thought it's getting more difficult to travel in nowadays.

    Pictures are fantastic. I have never seen such a beautiful place. It's really 21st century. Architecture is spectacular.

    Greetings.

  14. I would call that one a highly advanced airport. In fact it looks more like a shopping mall to me.
