After connecting from Glasgow, I had quite a few hours to wait until the flight to Dubai. Caught up with a friend at the airport and spent some time in the KLM Crown Lounge.

Boarding commenced on time from the G gates - first time departing from this pier. It was clear the flight wouldn't be full today.

Pushback was delayed around 20 minutes due to 'busy airways on the way to Dubai' and we were on our way. Pushing back past the queen and the 787.

Some views during takeoff from runway 36C. Seemed a rather short takeoff with some sunning views during our windy departure. Here's a link to my youtube video of the takeoff and some inflight pictures



Some cashews, white wine and water not long after departure.

Views of the cabin. I was lucky that the other two seats remained empty on this 10 across 777.

As usual. the KLM crew were all interacting with passengers, very friendly and helpful. Lunch was sweet & sour chicken, tropical salad, profiteroles, roll, butter and cheese / crackers. Tasted great.

Most of the route was clouded so not much views below but hardly any turbulence at all.



Pre arrival snack, chicken tikka pastry, was OK.
