Muscat - Doha (KLM, World Business Class, A330-200)
Doha - Amsterdam (KLM, World Business Class, A330-200)
Amsterdam – Paris CDG (KLM, Europe Business Class, B737-800)
[SOON] We are back to Dubai Airport for this short flight to Muscat. Emirates, FlyDubai, Kuwait Airways, Oman Air & Swiss are offering DXB-MCT flights. I don’t wanna flight low-cost, KU & LX frequency are limited and Emirates is very expensive for this OW, hence we settled with Oman Air.
A bland boarding pass unfortunately
King of the airport is Emirates of course
And some Indian carriers, with this B737-800 Jet Airways (I flew this very same aircraft VT-JGG back in 2007, CLICK-HERE FOR THE FR)
A321 Air India
But where is D……?
It’s very difficult at DXB to see aircraft, I only grab a picture of this A321 Qatar Airways from the foodcourt
Our aircraft is the scheduled B737-800
Business class cabin in a 2-2 configuration
Seats looks tired and the fabric doesn’t look very new
And a scratched window unfortunately A320-200 Gulf Air
A320 Indigo & A321 Royal Jordanian
Safety is done using overhead monitors
Airshow, my favourite program!
This flight is only 45mn, there is a choice of beef or cheese sandwiches, OJ & water are offered too
Sandwiches were pretty good albeit a bit small.
Sun is slowly declining
A new terminal is under construction, which is desperately needed I guess as Muscat is today a bus only airport.
The smallest member of WY fleet, the ATR42
Another B737-800 passing by.
Dubai - DXB
Muscat - MCT
It’s difficult to judge an airline on a short flight, still WY was rather cheap and delivers a solid product with an on time flight and an appropriate catering, the only downside is the cabin a bit worn but at least they have airshow.
From what I have seen on FR their E-jet are much better (FR ID#6060).
Thank you for reading.

You are always talking about seven flights routing(See first leg) but I'm only able to count five ?
I don't like Dubai airport : it's more a mall than an airport in my eyes
Short and rather pleasant flight even if it was an old aircraft
It is OK if you post your FRs in English, as long as you don't translate them in French and catch up twice faster with my lead in the overall members' ranking ^^
Do you mean that there are food courts for planes too ? Or maybe you spotted that QR A321 from the food court, rather than that at it. (OK, I tried hard to find something to criticize ^^)
The window does not look that badly scratched. Or maybe you placed your lens behind the only unscratched portion of it. Anyway your pictures are as crisp and carefully framed as usual. Thanks for this FR !
Thank you for another excellent report and video.
I personally hate bland boarding passes. Unfortunately I see this trend with Oneworld carriers where the logo of the carrier is printed along with the passenger's information as an afterthought. It was much nicer when it was included in the ticket stock paper. AA still has some personality in the boarding passes when you get them from the self serve kiosks.
I have to wonder why you wouldn't want to fly FlyDubai on this route instead. Their aircraft are brand new and offer AVOD/personal IFE at every seat, and they offer an affordable business class product that features far more amenities than Y on WY. Not to sound rude, but it comes off as kind of pretentious to say you won't fly an LCC (even when they offer a superior product at a better pricepoint on a route when miles don't matter).
D.... was only created for the people in France.
Thanks for this FR.
Although the service was good on your flight, especially taking into account the price paid and the flight duration, there does seem to be a big difference in the interiors of WY's planes.
Too bad LX timing was bad, it would have been fun to fly this airline on DXB-MCT.
Thank's for sharing !
The service was good for this flight, especially for the flight duration.
Great flight !
Thanks for sharing this FR.
a lot of memories for me when I read this report ;)
I agree with you, E-jet are better but also more recent !
Thanks for this very good FR.
Good vidéo as well.
