Leg #4: Flight EK51 DXB -> MUC | April 17th, 2017 You are here!
After arrival from BAH there was plenty of time to kill. My friend and I walked around DXB, did some plane spotting and luckily saw our aircraft arriving from JFK. After that we ate something at Mc Donalds, took a stroll through the Dubai Duty Free Shops and then it as already time for boarding.
Type: Airbus A380-800 Reg: A6-EEG First Flight: 2012-12-14 (almost 4.5 years old) Note 1: Aircraft was equipped with the "new" Economy Seats Note 2: It was the same A380 we had on the inbound flight from MUC to DXB just a few days ago
It was the first time for me, to fly multiple times with the same aircraft (registration).

Landing in MUC
The flight itself was very smooth, but landing was pretty bumpy. I don't know why, the weather in MUC was cold, but not rainy, winy or anything else. But as you can see in the picture below (small screen in the middle), we were very sideways - so that lead to a slight crosswind landing. The aircraft touched the runway, jumped a little bit back up and was then put down aggressively onto the runway. But overall - who cares? We were back home in very cold Germany :D

Finally back home again
Dubai - DXB
Munich - MUC
Once again a great flight trip with Emirates.
They always do a good job. To pay for seat place reservation is not very great - but I think that almost every other airline does the same.
