Hi Lorna, I assume you are flying with Emirates, if so have you booked your seats? You have to be a skyward member but this is free and can be done online. We are flying out from Glasgow on 31 May and have flown with Emirates on numerous occassions and they are by far the best airline we have used. Good food, service, entertainment and seats. If you have time, the shopping at Dubai is first class, especially the Gold.

May see you on our second week

Hope you have a great time.

thankyou stewart
i have a few more questions if that's ok?

what is the transfer like in dubia, is it straight forward?
skywards - how long does it take to activate your number once you have registered online?
how far in advance can you request seats?
what are the best seats to request?

also, i take it you have been to meeru before at this time of year, what is the weather like?
is there a lot of mosquitoes?

it's not long until you go, bet you can't wait! Razz

Hi there, the transfer is pretty straight forward, however it is a very large busy airport. It is welll signposted and if you are on a bus listen out for them announcing the stop for transfers as it is different from those staying in Dubai.

Skywards is instant and you can book as soon as you have a confirmation. Most of the aircraft we have been on have 3 or 4 rows of 2seats at the rear which are ideal if only two of you are travelling.

This is our first time to Meeru, if you search the forum your questions have been answered previously. From memory I think we can expect some rain and the mosquitos although present do not seem to be too much of a problem.

Only 10 days to go and I can't wait.

Any other questions don't hesitate to ask.
