On board business class on flydubai to ViennaLike0

When flydubai launched in 2009, we were amongst the very first passengers to fly to beirut and now 6 years later, flydubai launched more than 90 destination in 46 countries, almost all of which have Business Class services. When flydubai learned about my curiosity of Austria and the passion I had to visit, they jumped to the opportunity to work together on flying me business class to Vienna through Bratislava airport. Lucky me! The perks of my job! On board business class on flydubai to Vienna!

flydubai flies to Vienna 3 times a week through Bratislava airport which is a 45/50 minute drive to Vienna and I would do it all over again! I call it a boutique way of flying. At a starting price of 8,000 dhs return ticket on business class, there is everything to look forward to. I was picked up by a personal airport staff from the business lounge, 15 minutes before take off into a separate private bus to the Boeing aircraft and escorted me to my seat and offered some champagne or juice before we took off.

On board business class on flydubai to Vienna, I had a choice of three main course breakfast to chose from. Oats with yogurt, scrambled eggs or Arabic breakfast. Throughout the flight, hydrated with Evian bottles that were handed to me and entertained with the inflight movie selections, a charge plug and wider seats. It most definitely felt like a business class of a boutique airline.

Landing at Bratislava was an easy 15 minutes walk out of the airport. Buses are available for flydubai ‘s passengers but I had already booked a private car to drive me to Vienna since I wanted to do a couple of stops.

I understand the skepticism on flying business class on a low cost airline. I was one of those who judged until I realized the point of it all. It’s not about a flat bed or fancy cutleries and its not even about the entertainment system. It’s about making travel easier and accessible to all. That’s what it is. It’s about being able to travel wherever and whenever you want, even to remote places or city points where you can start and end your journey like Bratislava.

  • Whenever you’re ready... 💫
  • Two years ago today, I sailed in the arctic for the first time, I found a place where the chaos inside me was understood and my heart felt at home. 
The Arctic taught me so much... I learned to love every single weakness and strength I have in me, because no matter where you go, your thoughts go with you... but most of all the possibility of having all my dreams come true, that makes my life so beautiful and I cannot wait to go back ♥️ #TravelwithTJD

  • I left my heart in Scandinavia 💫
First thing I’ll do when @emirates resumes, and not one day later... fly back in the Arctic. 
Possibly Iceland, rent a van and drive for 1 week, waking up under the Arctic skies to a different landscape everyday... I visualize every moment of it and how I would feel. 
I miss nature and thrive when I’m surrounded by it.... then fly into Finland for another week and drive through into Swedish wilderness, waking up in a cabin by the lake, without any sense of time... doing exactly what I want to do, simply because it makes me happy... Going swimming, taking long walks and clearing my mind. 
It’s not long now till the borders open up again, I’m always hopeful. When was the last time you’ve traveled solo? And where are you dreaming of? Also, follow along @travelwithtjd - it would mean a lot to me if you could support our beautiful small business, which is how passion turned into a reality. 🤗
  • 35 years living in Dubai. I’ve watch the city grow from a slow-pace movement to one of the fastest cities in the world and back to slow. It’s soo eerie to witness so much change in a lifetime. I first landed in Dubai with my family the year @emirates first started operating. Yet, as the city slowly starts to open up, I can’t help but feel grateful. Mostly for the determination and efforts the country has done to keep those like myself, a guest in their home, safe. It’s been a long journey and I’m hopeful for the future. Thank you @mydubai
  • Legend says: There is an intangible string of fate that binds souls destined to be together. Those connected are bound no matter of time, place or circumstance.
The red string of fate is derived from an ancient East Asian belief. According to this myth, the Gods tie a red string around the ankles of all those that are destined to meet each other or help each other in a certain way.
No matter how near or far you are from them, the thread remains. There will be times when mentally or physically, you feel distant from those people, but that doesn’t affect the thread that binds you together. I’ve always believed and loved this tale... and thought it was a great time to remember it. 
Do you believe in legends and tales? 💫
  • Im finally slowly starting to feel like myself again, it’s been challenging and a battle adapting to the new... I read something I posted once before and felt like reading it over and over again, the more I read it, the more I started to remember who I was, who I am...and, with this new moon, I feel it’s my chance to start over again, finally. Some clarity. Some strength. 
I believe in giving people time...Time to process the good and the bad because, there is something so beautiful about unforced bonds. 
I’m a forever kind of person. I don’t have room for temporary. I believe in big love, of growing old with your friends and soulmates. I believe in being there for people through thick and thin. I believe in not giving up when things get tough. I believe in relationships that can make it through everything... unforced bonds. 💫
What about you? How are You!?
  • Maybe you say that you are in touch with reality and “She is not” 
But maybe, instead say, “Her reality is so different from ours that she can't explain hers to us, and we can't explain ours to her”

Reality differs from person to person... My reality is liberating and filled with love... I’m going to remind myself to always be brave enough to keep holding on to it 💫 ♥️
  • Finland... I dream of you in colors... only the blind can feel...💫
  • Some truth: 
I created a life I always dreamed of, and not what others expect of me. 
I knew what I wanted from the very start and I didn’t let anything stand in my way. 
The stories of who I am is told through what I remind myself on how far I’ve come and that it’s always ok not to have everything figured out. 
I’ve always known what I wanted out of my life, and I’m still on my journey. 
So, how am I coping with our @travelwithtjd business during this pandemic? 
I’ve pushed away those who told me “ You are a dreamer for thinking it will end soon” -  because I believe it will. 
I’ve dropped those who laughed when I said “we will fly the skies once again, sooner than we think”. Because I’m a free spirit.
I’ve blocked those who have repeatedly given me their advice that I should ‘find a new hobby or create a new business’. Because, with this lockdown or not, I’ve been creating my own reality, with my passion and love for yoga, traveling, photography, reading and my persistence on building an empire out of @travelwithtjd - I’ve been (and still) doing exactly what I’ve always loved. 
We are strong resilient human beings. 
I’ve fallen in love with being alive a very long time ago. And I for one, will always stay hopeful and I know that in the end, everything always works out. Because it always, always does.

  • This is for those who give everything they’ve got to make their lives as beautiful as their dreams... and for the friends who stick... for what’s real and what's not...
You will find them in the little things... and little moments. Now more than ever. 
That's when you know 💫 
Happy Palm Sunday 🙂
  • Woke up this morning feeling a sudden disconnection.
There’s power in disconnection.
When you separate yourself from the world for a while, you’ll figure out what’s feeding ur soul, what’s entertaining ur ego, what’s nothing but a distraction... and then you find exactly where your alignment is.
  • Happy whatever f**** day it is 🤷‍♀️
