Hello Everyone,

I just wanted to know why there are large delays on all flights departing from DXB today. For example todays VS401 (DXB-LHR) is delayed over 16 hours and will not arrive now until tomorrow and nearly all EK flights leaving between 07:00 and 10:00 were delayed in excess of two hours.

With Regards,
Alex.B

Maybe something wrong with the airport, or maybe because the UK aviation authorities changed few restricitons today,, who knows

I would imagine that the VS flight might either be M/X or lacks a crew due to fog eating up their block time, while the rest of the flights are just fog related only...


Of all the things to worry about... the Wookie has no pants.

Yes, as mentioned before, it was extremely foggy around Dubai/Sharjah metro area.
