2:50 AM flight coming up.

What is it with all these early morning flights out of DXB? Nothing to do but sit around and twiddle your thumbs.

Groan.

Done predominantly to set their arrival time at destination to one wanted by travellers. But yes I feel for you - damned hate those timings.

Call me Debbie Downer but I don't want to see headlines one morning about 2 little boys named Rascal and TallyHo being arrested for being very naughty! Sorry I've deleted the little conversation you all were having.

Shouldn't that go in a PM to them directly? Now we're all intrigued and want to know what was going on.
