After passing huge lines at passport control and passing security check we went down to the tunnel that connects the terminal to the airside terminal

Picture of Dubai's future terminal at world central airport. It looks not bad but I kind of like DXB and it's awesome location right next to Dubai's city centre much more

Rendering of Rome's future terminal. I had no idea about this one. Looks like FCO is expanding nicely

Inside a book. The Arabic alphabet is the same as Persian (Farsi) alphabet of Iran but words mean totally different things except for some similar words. It's like English and Italian, same words but different meaning with some common words.

First they served a snack sandwich, which was tasty

Around 1:30 hour before landing in Vienna, they served the breakfast, which was very delicious as well

A look at our plane

photo image155_zpspswfii5h

Vienna's new terminal does not have much to do except some shops at the beginning of it, also it's very dark and I wished they used brighter furniture. It was also very hard to take pictures of planes due to glass reflection

photo image156_zps2timj2de

But it had an amazing thing, which is these seats that you can sleep on. It's very handy and useful for passengers with long connections and they were super comfy.

And I slept on this comfy seat for the next 2 hours before our flight to Toronto :)

Overall a great flight by Austrian. Very clean and fresh cabin. Comfortable seats for economy with good legroom and seat width. Nice crew and the meal tasted good too. The IFE was great too.
