This post is a couple of days late...but it's here now.
Got to Gatwick at 7am for our 10am Emirates flight - EK0012 - to Dubai. Some kind man took the 1st picture of our travels outside departures, and we were on our way. We stopped @ Eat for some bacon rolls and before we knew it we were boarding.
Somehow we managed to bag ourselves the emergency exit seats with looooads of foot room and the food menu on board was amazing. Chicken curry was the main course with sticky toffee pudding for desert...amazing! I watched 'The Other Woman' and Rich watched '300'...!
...Next flight ~ Dubai-Singapore ~ EK0352.
We had an hour to get to this flight, and made it early as our plane was delayed by 20 mins. Boarded as usual 20 mins later and we practically slept the whole way. On board turbulence on the Strait of Malacca, probably because of the typhoon season, but all was fine and landed in Singapore around 9am local time on 15/09/14!
