Re: Where to do BEng or BSc in Dubai?

I don't know what things are like in Dubai, but here in Qatar they've stopped accepting online courses as valid credentials even if they're from a reputable institution, so I would be wary of that if...

Re: Salutations, closings and sign-offs in correspondence

Re: Couple, no kids - where to rent in Dubai?

A 20min walk in summer would have me absolutely drenched in sweat. There's no way I could go to work in that state.

Re: Problems at the gulf airlines ??

I like the A380s as I'm 6'4" and still get plenty of leg space in economy. Deliberately book my QA flight times to Heathrow to make sure I get one of them.

Re: Problems at the gulf airlines ??

Might even be quicker than the eGate queue now everybody can use it. Not been through the airport since then but I'm guessing it's still a bit chaotic when people haven't used it before...

Re: What sort of Brexit do you want?

I voted Remain and I haven't seen anything that's changed my mind from that since then, but if we're going to go (and I don't see how this vote in the house of commons would possibly stop that) then...

Re: Hair transplants

I used to do the same thing when I was doing loads of triathlon - I got so fed up of all the washing when training twice daily that I just clipped it down to 1. Much simpler.

I can confirm that the 45 day thing applies to credit cards over here as well, so bear that in mind when...

Re: DXB Transport between terminals
