Nice one. By the sounds of things, Kuwait won't change that much anyway.

Correct! It's hotter but less humid in Kuwait. Watch out for the crazy driving - those ring roads are fun

Flights are now booked. Actually flying into DXB on the 2nd May now on the morning flight from Manchester.

I asked if I could pay for a business class upgrade myself and got told it would cost me £2k. Oh well, cattle class it is...at least it's a daytime flight. Will have to get some good noise-cancelling headphones and hope I can get an emergency exit/bulkhead seat.

Please wear a wristwatch-cum-health monitor when you go through immigration at DXB and afterwards post your peak heart rate.

I looked up flights myself and found Qantas Premium Economy out of LHR for about 700 quid. Is PE worth the extra? Are Qantas good? Dustin Hoffman likes them...

That's what I think. Once I got a Qantas plane home after booking EK. It was much of a muchness.

Emirates don't have Premium Economy do they? Or if they do, only on the A380s.

They do code share, but they also have their own flights.

No Premium Economy on any of Emirates fleet, not even the A380.
