Well my turbulent trip was from Doha to Dubai on QR
A300 last year.
I was just one minute late to checkin for my boarding pass. After argueing a lot we were given our economy tickets. The sky was already yellow and black (it was 12 in the afternoon!). When we sat down in the plane still on the ground, there was one of the worst sandstorms followed by a thunderstorm. Still on the ground, the wings shook like hell, and the plane appeared to be pushed back and forth.
After two hours, things started to calm down but nevertheless the same. The pilot announced that we would take off. I swear to God, the plane took off like a rocket, and as soon as we were airbourne, the plane banked to the right and dropped up and down like a tsunami wave. People were screaming, but THANK GOD it was only a 45 minute flight. Men's GHUTRA'S (head dresses) were falling. Of course no meal was served at all until we landed!
