The Dubai airport is incredible. Think crazy duty free shopping, packed with people from the hajj, and non stop flight announcements...all at 3 am. We got in a bit late because some whackjob decided to light a cigarette on the plane. They had to have the police come one, etc. Emirates is the most unbelievable airline I have ever flown. Free food in the airport, and if you're there for more than 12 hours, a free 5 star hotel room. Pretty insane. There were also 1000 channels on the TV on the plane. I was clearly starstruck :) I'll put up some pictures soon. Took a pillow and blanket from the plane and found a quiet corner to sleep for 10 hours or so before my flight to Nairobi. I was just like hiding behind these chairs with a bed made up...I'm sure it looked ridiculous. Bottom line, Dubai is going to take over the world...we just can't compete with that level of service.
