Photo review of Oman Air flight from Muscat to Dubai in Business


I took this short hop in connection to my previous Oman Air flight from Munich.

As I had ca. 2 hours to wait at Muscat Airport I visited the very nice and calm Oman Air Business Class lounge.
It is very nicely decorated and offers a great food and drinks buffet.
However as I just had breakfast on the plane, I just had some water and a cold chocolate drink.

Oman Air also entitles each lounge guest to a complimentary 15 minutes massage.
I booked my massage at the reception desk and really enjoyed this very nice 15 minutes massage before continuing on my next flight.

All boardings at Muscat are done by bus and when I reached the gate, I immediately could go on a bus waiting there.
It brought us quickly to our Airbus A330 that would take us to Dubai this morning.

I reached my window seat in the first row of this great Business Class cabin.

Atmosphere on this flight again was very nice and calm.

A nice flight attendant offered me a choice of hot or cold towel where I decided for the cold one which was nicely scented as well.

As pre departure drink I had some fresh lemon juice followed by the typical Arabic coffee and dates service.

The flight attendant also asked me if I wanted to have the egg dish or a sandwich after take off.
I opted for the egg dish.

Taxiing at Musact takes very long and this is a view of the main terminal building where all boarding by buses starts from:

Another Oman Air Airbus took off in front of us before it was our turn.

During take off I enjoyed some nice views of Oman.

Flight time would only be 40 minutes. So the flight attendants quickly served me this breakfast with some water.
There were no other drinks on offer but this was totally fine for such a short flight.

Here is a shot of the noice cancelling headsets that were available to enjoy the AVOD entertainment on this flight.

We already started approach again before I finished my meal.
There were some nice desert views before touching down at Dubai Airport.

We parked at concourse D next to a nice Iran Air Airbus 310.
