Ek348 dxb-(cmb)-sin

Hello... all non-stop flights are not available in my booking class and I'm not going to come up with 2000dhs to rebook on a higher economy class, so I'll be flying Dubai-Singapore via Colombo on 21 December 2010.. just a quick question, for the 1h15m transit, do pax get to disembark?

Would not think so, would expect the gate to be already open for departing passengers before you even get off the plane.

No, you must stay onboard while they clean up etc. Done this flight a couple of times and hate it. EK is blocking inventory right now on DXB-SIN. I would suggest you keep checking EF as you should be able to get the direct flight closer to your date.

Do they keep the entertainment system on? I'll be doing a similar flight (DXB-BKK-HKG) I'll be at BKK for an hour and something I guess.

Don't think so. They keep trying to do a headcount but pax keep moving around the cabin and they keep asking everyone to stay seated. Or maybe they do, I don't remember. I got put off by having to watch ICE videos twice, and the rushed service on both legs. Most pax on this flight are flying either DXB-CMB or CMB-SIN.

Apologies for bumping an old thread.

doing this journey in reverse (SIN-CMB-DXB) in a few weeks. Does one stay onboard at CMB?
