LH service to/from DXB


Are the A340's that fly to DXB 2 class or 3 classes of service? Also, the return leg seems to depart DXB at around 2AM, so I assume that there is no "dinner" service as such but only perhaps?) a snack and then a full breakfast before landing in FRA?

I will be on a C ticket. Thanks.

Hi,

it is a 3 class service.

you are right, it is only a snack (well, a little bit more than a snack) + a full breakfast.

greetings

Hi Gaucho100,
I have some tips for you, Im often in Dubai: The best shopping center is City Center, but pretty expensive.. A good experience is the indian shopping district, take a taxi to Hotel Astoria and start from there... old bazar etc. Things are very very inexpensive .. The river is also there and for no money you can take a trip to the other side and back with the water taxis. The beach in jumeirah is very nice I never tried water this hot. There a good public beach or you can go to the hotels and pay a small amount for access to their beaches...

Do you need more tips ???
When are you there...we could take a mex beer

Go and visit the Burj-Al-Arab Hotel. If you don`t stay there, they will charge you an entrance-fee but it`s very well worth it since you have never seen anything like it (and the entrance can be credited against restaurant-charges). I stayed there for 2 nights and spend hours sitting in front of their water-fountains. Nothing compares!1

Thanks to all for the tips. Well, Ive decided I will definetely stay at the Burj, and also it seems like the night markets are also a must see. Until what time do they stay open?

Longhauler, I will most probably be there from September 5-7. Let me know what your itinerary is, perhaps we can meet up and I can buy you that Mexican beer. So the shopping is expensive... thanks for the correction, I was under the impression that the airport shopping was supposed to offer some bargains. The Indian shopping district sounds interesting, I will be sure to check that out.

I went to Dubai with LH last year - even did a trip report - I was very happy with the snack

One more question on this FRA-DXB route - do the A340s they use have personal TVs? Also, are there any rows in Y worth requesting for extra legroom - I'm *Gold, if that will make any difference? Thanks!

personal TVs: yes in F and C, no in Y

seats w/ extra legroom in Y: try 20D or 20G - these are the aisle seats of the middle group in the 2nd row of Y. Since it is a 2-4-2 configuration except for the first row in Y (which is 2-3-2), you have extra legroom - at least for one leg.
