Well, I had been reading that Qantas had recently returned to profit - and I can now see why: the Club is not open when you want to use it! We tried our luck at the Emirates Lounge, but alas the card has no value there, regardless of the fact that it was an Emirates plane we were travelling on that code-shared with Qantas.
The hours passed and we were soon boarding the 777ER. as luck would have it, the flight was not full (to KL at least) and I had a 4 seat bed to stretch out on whilst Gail took 3 seats for hers
Our hotel in Dubai is just across the (very wide) road from Terminal 3 at Dubai International Airport. Whilst it would be near impossible to cross the freeway on foot, it wasn't necessary as the hotel has a 24 hour complimentary shuttle that circles around picking up guests as they arrive.
For a one night sleepover to break up the long haul to Europe, this Holiday Inn hotel is ideal. The rooms are clean, there is a complimentary breakfast, Wi-Fi and the shuttle makes it just too easy.
Tomorrow's 8.5 hour flight to Madrid will be a snap as we will be refreshed and ready to go. Also the fact we are doing business class on this leg will, I am sure, make it just a tad more pleasurable (although I haven't flown Royal Jordanian Airlines before!).
