lol the piano bar, in all the years i have been here, i have never seen anyone sat at that piano or anyone come to think of it, even having a drink there

AD just opened a new terminal in the last couple of months, very nice, so much better than the old one. You wont be impressed by the smoking area though, its a glass box!

That is fine with me, at least they have one...must give Etihad a try, quite a few friends have started using them instead of Emirates.

The AD terminal 3 also has a bar! The glass boxes for smokers are really weird - they remind me of something out of Star Trek. I thought the new terminal was good too but somehow I missed the atmosphere of the old one!

You can still walk to IV from T3, just get to the airport 5 hours before your flight time.

Christ, you obviously are not motivated enough..

Faced with a 17hr journey to H-town, I did the top of the escalators to IV in 12 mins...!!!!
