Spent a few days in Dubai. Attached a few videos from the past five days including impressions from Dubai, the flights with the A330-300 to Dubai and back plus a Cessna Caravan 208 seaplane cruising around Dubai.
I hope you still enjoy the trip report, despite it is somewhat deviating from the standards.

What hotel did you stay at? Did the heat bother you?
I see what looks like a Fortress in your video? I had no idea there was one there? It looks very interesting anyway.
The LX flight originates / continues to Muscat. Leaves Dubai after midnight arrives Zurich at about 7 AM.
1. Do you know if the Muscat passengers stay on board in Dubai or have to disembark?
2.What is the catering on this flight? I am guessing just a tiny continental breakfast before landing in Zurich? However I notice you were in C.
3. What were the loads like?

Thanks for the comments
I stayed at the Burj Al Arab hotel.
The videos were taken with Sony HX1 (flights to Dubai) and Sanyo Xacti 1010 (Cessna and return flights)
Yes, the Muscat pax have to stay on board during the 35 ground time.
Loads were pretty OK both ways, probably 85 % in Business and Economy.

Awesome video of your departure from DXB. Very much like my departure on an LH 744 except that though on the port side of the aircraft like you, we actually went right over the Burj Khalifa...It was truly an awesome experience considering how much lower the rest of the buildings seemed in comparsion with to it. I truly wish you had been able to capture that on your awesome camera!
