Travel plans 2016

Happy new year from DXB

I know you are all worried but we are fine ^ - we live on the boulevard but are pretty much at the other side of where the address downtown is although last night we were much closer at the residences.

Anyway where do you plan to go on Emirates this year?

So far I have MAN HND AMM LGW/LHR and possible SIN DPS for now

So many places so little time

I will have half a dozen UK trips, my monthly BKK and a couple of MNL, HKG and DME's thrown in for fun.

Going to start taking a look at what Qatar and Etihad have to offer this year as getting slightly annoyed and the lack of consistency that is appearing in service in F and J

Glad to here you are safe, I was down in Zero Gravity in JBR and looked at my phone and saw dozens of missed calls from worried friends and relatives. Glad I stayed away from Dubai Mall now though.

Perhaps we should have a flyer talk meet up at your place next year

Grand total of 0 flights in 2016 for me...

A sad year indeed.

Wandering off topic... there is a guy on the Red Issue forum who was at The Address. Booked a table on the 3rd floor terrace to watch the fireworks. He said the whole place was in flames in about 20 seconds!

Just like the fire earlier in the year, no reported deaths. Hmmm... I wonder would they admit it if hotel workers had been killed?

Slightly worrying how quickly both fires took hold.

Anyway, good to hear you're OK, Happy New Year!

Unfortunately, my assignment in Dubai doesn't look like it's happening. Pesky Russians charging half my rate got in

There have been FT do's in Dubai for the last few years. Last year was just me and the missus though Previously they were very well attended.

MAN-DXB-BKK-HKG-DXB-MAN over Easter with a 3 year old and an 11 month old. One of those trigger happy bookings you make and then reflect on with trepidation!

I am sure our friend doing PTY in Y will have enough room to sleep horizontally on multiple rows at the same time

Happy New Year to all.

I was watching everything unfold on NYE from our terrace in Business Bay. Scary stuff indeed!

A (somewhat) exciting year booked so far as i'm getting married in September and have managed to book F on the 380 for our first flight to kick off the honeymoon. Needless to say getting married in the UK - hence the number of LGW flights:
LGW, CPT, LGW, LGW, NRB, LGW
