Departure from Abu Dhabi by bus , the RTA (Roads and Transport Authority) of Dubai created two lines between Dubai/Abu Dhabi , i was even able to top-up my NolCard in Abu Dhabi while doing shopping

Two hours later we arrive in city center of dubai , on the way we passed close to AUH (next time for sure) and DWC

But the checkin area of terminal T1 is a real souk/mess , spicejet and the indian style, SU to SVO and KQ to NBO with pax loaded like camels

Once done , time to clear immigration.

It's like a human version of this famous nokia's game , the snake (ok it doesn't belong to Nokia but became pretty famous because it was installed on their phones)

I've never seen a queue so huge and so fast , it's amazing how i can't even find time to stop and pack/unpack my stuffs

ife is the same as AF , only differences are graphic interface and content

I had fun watching Russian and Dutch movies , and now i want to learn dutch cause it seems funny !

This KL version is set to auto-sleep , i guess it's because of time , because on the AF flight it was not

Pitch is correct
