Continuing my journey from Amsterdam (EK148) via Dubai to Hong Kong (EK382)!

The captain announced that pushback would be delayed by 30 minutes due to late connecting passengers.
He also announced that the total flight time would be 7:55 hours and we would be flying at a cruising altitude of 41.000 feet.
Ready for pushback @A380 Paradise… Emirates' ICE is extremely up to date! Movies being shown in cinema are also on ICE!

Security at HKG took a bit long… stood in immigration line for nearly 30 minutes… Although, 90% of the counters were open. Must be a busy hour!
Welcome to China! Not sure if they are scheduled departures or arrivals…

Dubai - DXB


Hong Kong - HKG



Overall a flight that I had a good amount of sleep on.
Friendly FA's. tasty meal, clean cabin, although 1 of the lavatories was really dirty, but Emirates can't help that...
Emirates has excellent seats with a nice headrest.
DXB, a big airport with many shops, although gets a bit boring when you have been there quite some times...
HKG, big, planespotter-friendly airport with a big foodcourt!
