Good advice from eternaltransit re what to take with you.

AKL-BNE will be daylight/dusk. BNE-DXB you will be flying with the night and DXB-GLA will be a daylight flight. My experience flying from AKL to GLA albeit via SYD or MEL is that because I am acclimatised to NZ time I find it fairly difficult not to go to sleep as soon as we take off from the Australian departure point. On my last couple of trips I have had dinner on the AKL - OZ leg and not eaten again until breakfast on the OZ-DXB sector.

Pax on the DXB-GLA leg will be a mix of people starting their journey in DXB and passengers like yourself who have transferred directly from another flight. In my experience this means that there may be more "buzz" on this leg as many pax are wide awake.

I hope you are made as welcome in Scotland as I always am in New Zealand and that the Games are good to you. (Wee assumption about the purpose of your trip!)
