Pre-Flight Information


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.

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

Conclusion

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.
