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.

  • I’ve been on the road a lot in Lebanon which has been an adventure on its own! The Infiniti Q30 2.0 has the navigation system with updated maps of Lebanon which made it easier to find my way around. It’s things like this I love the most about returning back here. Endless road trips with friends and despite Lebanon being so small, the adventures are endless! #infinitilebanon #Q30
  • Home sweet home ♥️ Spent the weekend dancing the night away and at the beach during the day!
How was your weekend?? 🇱🇧
  • Compassion is power. Compassion asks us to go where it hurts, to enter into the places of pain, fear and happiness. 
Compassion challenges us to cry out with those in misery and to smile with those who are happy. Compassion towards others is what makes me human and it’s a skill that I’ve learned to cultivate. And if you don’t have it, then it would be difficult for me to have you in my life. 
So this is a reminder to be good to each other today and to those you don’t know. God knows how many of us need it. 
Happy Saturday ♥️
  • Lake Chouwen - Lebanon 🇱🇧
A beautiful reserve, a 45 minutes hike and an adventurous location through Jabal Moussa! I even drove through the tiniest road into the mountains and was freaking out but made it through thanks to my co-pilot :)!
Lebanon is filled and surrounded with beautiful nature. 🇱🇧
Had an incredible day exploring Lebanon with @ramimansourr @mikhaelbitar @sarahdibrahim @abbas_kalel
  • Lebanon’s morning activities are filled with daily road trips across the mountains and the coast with close friends. Stopping by historical landmarks and eating the best zaatar in small villages. It also helps when your #infiniti car has BOSE sound-system 😊
Happy Tuesday everyone! 🇱🇧♥️ #Q30 #infinitilebanon
  • Good morning from home in Lebanon in Beit Douma. I can’t tell you how happy I am to be back in Lebanon!!! Have you ever been?

I’ve added an article on a guide to 9 guesthouses in Lebanon, you can click the link in my bio.
  • There really isn’t any better way to sail across Madeira Island than with Pedro and his gang! @rotadoscetaceos2016 We saw whales and swam with wild dolphins!!!! We jumped in the (freezing) Atlantic sea and went diving and discovered the most beautiful island 🌴 Now it’s your turn to go!
  • A beautiful slow morning in Madeira 🌴
Isn’t it beautiful?
  • 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.
  • It was sunny and we were heading to the pool in Lisbon when all of a sudden a little rain cloud passed and so decided to just walk out and get some pastel de nata 😊
  • Today, my mind is like a laptop set up. 
I have 20 tabs open, 4 of them are frozen and I have no idea where the music is coming from... 🤷🏼‍♀️ Dreaming of going back to Madeira 🌴
  • Madeira Island is home to Europe's tallest sea cliff- more than 1,900 feet above sea level. The Madeira Archipelago is located in the Atlantic Ocean, in the African plate. 
Before my trip to Madeira, some people told me I only need 3-4 days to tour the island. It’s far from the truth and I’m glad I didn’t listen to them! It’s been a week here and there is still so much I feel I haven’t explored yet!! Would you visit Madeira Island? 🇵🇹
