KL428 : dxb-ams : here
KL1363 : ams-waw :

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

Then take the metro for 30 minutes

Checkin super quick , almost no one

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

After 10 minutes of immigration/security , i have 10 more of walking

And i arrived …. in the mall , because dxb is more a shopping mall than an airport

Few services for passengers but 97694 shops and restaurants

Wanted to try a lounge , ahlan or marhaba , but i changed my mine , i will do it in 2017

Boarding at gate d19 , next to us are CZ to Hangzhou and AF to Paris

Boarding started and as expected from dnata it was a big mess

Business cabin then economy

Short taxing and take off , bye bye uae , see you in 2017

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

This bag bring me memories and suggest me some new destinations

Cabin crew8.0

Dubai - DXB


Amsterdam - AMS



KLM = i really enjoyed the movies , the selection is much better than AF
DXB = take a mall , connect it to gates/planes and you have DXB
AMS = smaller , transit is much faster , and there is almost everything you need
