Yes Please! Emirates Airline!
Back on African Soil and smiling thanks to Emirates Airline with whom we had booked our return flights Cape Town – Dubai – Rome. On checking in to depart Rome and with a long lay over looming in Dubai before connecting to Cape Town, we were approached and asked to take a flight 5½ hours later mmmmm …… Grump! But we listened and the deal was remarkable. For agreeing to the delay we were given free return tickets Cape Town – Dubai – Rome, an upgrade to Business Class for the first segment of our flight, and if that isn’t enough emergency exit major leg room seats for the stretch from Dubai to Cape Town. Go Emirates! You’ve got a fan in me!
Further word of advise. At the Dubai Airport whilst on a connection, if you don’t want to risk wetting your toes among the foreign hair that clogs the public showers (yuk), for US$10 you can check in to the Health Spa for a fabulous shower with all lotions, potions, fluffy white towels and atmosphere provided! Best US$10 I’ve ever spent …
Thank you Emirates – we’ll be back in Italy soon! On you … Check out the link above for specials that they are currently running.
