HD Videos - Swiss A330-300 To Dubai And Back

Tue Aug 24, 2010 8:35 pm

Hi all
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. Very nice videos.

They stay on board.

The stop in DXB is short (45min or so)

Here is what J/C passengers get on DXB-ZRH:

- pre-take off drink (2 runs)

- supper, served when flying above Qatar, and over when reaching Kuwait

- breakfast, with a choice 3 main options. You make up your mind filling a card, which the crew collects before you fall asleep. Served from the Austro-Hungarian border to Innsbruck.

Arrival lounge in ZRH was well advertised by the crew and on the menus as well.

When I have more time, I will list what was on the menu of the flight DXB-ZRH which I did in J on January 10, 2010.

On MCT-DXB, J/C passengers get a drinks service, possibly with small appetisers.

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.

The Burj Al Arab I believe charges $1,000 a night for the room. For outsiders one can only enter by paying $200 to get a drink at the bar. Or $400 at the restaurant. I think for 2.

Is it really such a great hotel? Thanks.

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!
