As a long-term resident of Dubai(more than 20 years) who left in 2003 I was very interested to see how things had progressed over the years and booked Emirates flights from Paris to Bangkok via Dubai International Airport for a family holiday. I was surprised to see how large the airport complex had become over a relatively short period of time. HOWEVER, one aspect of Dubai had not changed to the detriment of the whole experience and that was the focus on money at all costs(no pun intended). Our flights through the airport in both directions entailed lengthy waits and it was IMPOSSIBLE too find somewhere to sit and relax.


It was quite obvious that the whole airport experience was about how much money could possibly be extracted from the people passing through with little care for their comfort and all available space was dedicated to this goal. Being very tired from a long journey in both directions it was totally unacceptable to have to march round and round the terminals trying to find somewhere to sit(with thousands of people doing the same). You do not expect to see people in such an airport sleeping on the floor.


Bottom line - a great airline(Emirates) totally let down by Dubai International Airport. The sad fact is that we will probably NOT travel with them again purely because we would need to transit through Dubai Airport!
