Arrived safely, and a little early in Delhi. We had an early start, as the hotel had in Dubai was hosting the ‘Iron Man’ (and ‘Iron Woman’ it seems) contest, and they’d closed roads. Of course, we left an hour earlier than previously booked, and breezed through to the airport 😌
So whatever you might say, Dubai airport works for me. Check in works, security works, it’s a long way, but they have monorail and walkways so that’s ok. Flight left on time, and Emirates were very good again. Apart from having to take a bus to the plane (which we both gate), the flight was good, and we both caught up on sleep (well at least a bit anyway), shorter than I imagined at 2hrs 20-odd minutes.
There’s a one and a half hour time difference from Dubai to Delhi (yeah, half an hour – that’s a gas huh ?🤔
To be fair, we got through Delhi airport fairly quickly, and were soon in the car. Then you get to enjoy the traffic chaos that is Delhi – anything seems to go 🚖🚲🚘🚍🚜🚑🚙🚗🚘🚍🚔🚗🚕🚙 and of course 🐃🐃🐃🐃🐃🐃🐂🐂🐂🐂🐂🐐🐐🐐🐐.
Checked in fine at hotel. I don’t want to jinx it, but these transport arrangements have worked well so far (fingers crossed).
