So I headed to the airport last night shortly before midnight for my 2.30am flight to Malaysia (a 8 hour flight) to learn that the Emirates plane wasn’t coming. So Emirates were sending everyone home in paid taxis or to a hotel for the night. There are a lot of thunderstorms in Kuala Lumpur now so the plane from Dubai had to go to Singapore. So we are leaving instead at 6pm today. The girl at the Emirates counter said that everyone was being really nice about the delay. I think the delay was great! – I had no real plans for the day in KL today – I didn’t have to stay up till 2.30am to wait for my flight – I got to sleep in my own bed instead of sleeping in the upright position – The flight leaving at 6pm is a much better time. It arrives in Malaysia at 11.30pm (Malaysia time). So I don’t need to try to sleep on the plane. – The plane itself is now half empty as many passengers made other plans, so there will be space to spread out. – I get to go to my gym today after I missed a session yesterday. I can’t see anything not to be happy about. I’m looking forward to checking out the Emirates service today. I have never flown with them before. Their Boeing 777ER can fly up to 20 hours! That would be pretty amazing.
