Emirates Skywards - Stop at DXB
Aug 15, 08, 2:49 pm
I have a flight BKK-DXB-DUS (eco) with 9 hrs lay over at DXB. Am i entitled for an accomodation as the lay over is more than 8hrs? And one thing, my passport has Israel stamp from last visit in May this year. i hope this is is not a problem.

The Israel stamp shouldn't be a problem. Not sure about the accomodation as you're in Y but there's an airport hotel plus duty free. What time are your flights? If it's a daytime layover you could possibly contemplate going to Dubai town.

You are entitled to a hotel stay if the booking class for the entire outbound or inbound leg of their journey is N, M, E, W, or Y for your 9-hr layover

Since you have a 'night' layover, this means that no malls or attractions will be open. I recommend you call your local EK office to make sure how that hotel accomodation will be arranged. The sooner the better of course.
It wouldn't hurt to ask if you can be booked at the IC but EK provides good accomodation-no unpleasant surprises.

You need to call EK to book the STPC. You will be provided with a voucher mini booklet and they should be able to have it ready for you at check in at BKK.
Since you're in Y, you can not chose a hotel, rather you will be put in EK Wing at the Airport Millenium Hotel which is a 2 min drive away from the arrivals. You will be provided with transfers (via bus which departs every 20/30 minutes). Also you will get at the hotel check in vouchers for a snack, breakfast and lunch (since your layover is this long).
Try and get the first floor 120 something rooms because they tend to be quiter and are smoke free.
There is an Emirates customer service desk in the hotel lobby which you could approach to request an emergency exit on your onward flight (they are usually pretty helpful, specially the folks that work late at night).
