Land at Abu Dhabi and walk about two kilometers to get to a connecting flight.
Wait about two hours for next flight. The smokers lounge is chockers but you can't see them.
Board flight to Dublin and after an hour an a half out a monitor in the seat opposite me starts emitting smoke just as I was getting to sleep having not slept on previous flight. Fire extinguishers are produced and a small amount of panic seems to set in. However having had no sleep I try to go back to sleep. After a while captain decides to proceed as monitors don't show nay fire present on the plane
It's seems a dichotomy to me that you can't take sharp objects in cabin luggage yet you are handed knifes and forks to eat your meals inboard.
Arrive eventually in Dublin and what a shock! From 26 degrees all the way to 7 degrees takes a bit of getting used to.
Back in Abu Dhabi five o'clock sat morning Aussie time wait of another hour then the long haul. I see the hawks had a win nice kicking by Buddy! Get to Melbourne six pm local time.
