I have transited through Dubai many times over the past 10 years and I have never ever departed on time.
Arrival into Dubai has almost always resulted in endless circuits either over the Gulf or above the desert...
All in all... Emirates has become my last option for travel... it used to be my first choice, and DXB transit has a lot to do with it.

Yesterday's arrival into Brisbane was almost 5 hours late in arriving. The onward EK434 to AKL did not arrive there until I believe almost 7pm.
I understand DBX was fog issues recently, however this flight receives regular delays. Equivalent flights to SYD & MEL are usually on time in comparison.
What is going on?
I flew the BNE-AKL leg last year and I would have been extremely annoyed at a 5 hour delay!
