02/11/06, Bad Delays At DXB, Why?

Fri Nov 03, 2006 4:55 am

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...

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