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.

  • Due to popular demand, we have decided to launch yet another @travelwithtjd trip last minute on the 26-30th March 2020!! Chasing the Northern lights on an adventure of a lifetime to end the winter season!
For those who missed out on all our groups for March in Finland. This one’s for you! Message me to get more info!! See you in the North!
  • This morning, woke up thinking a lot about all the beautiful risks I’ve took to get to where I am. Incredible partnerships along the way to make @travelwithtjd a reputable and trusted travel brand to create realities. I’m not even halfway there, but my momentum is as strong as ever, keeping only one thing in mind... the success and joy TJD has brought to me and so many others. 
I’d also like to take this opportunity in my post to genuinely thank @wegoarabia a platform I always use to compare my ticket prices to get to those far far away places up North and for being such an incredible partner to TJD. If you haven’t downloaded the app yet, do it, it will save you a lot of money and time while booking those flights, especially routes like Svalbard. 
Thank you to everyone who is constantly supporting my dream. 
And, thank you @dennisstever for the beautiful photo. 💫#TravelwithTJD #CreateYourReality

My attempt to release my inner Viking. I’ve been anticipating the opening of @arcticbath_sweden for 2 years now... and here I am today. The first floating hotel in Sweden and grateful to have experienced it.

  • It’s been almost 2 years since this photo was taken, but it feels a lifetime ago. 
It’s not everyday you find a friend who you can ‘pick up and go’ with, who says yes to crazy adventures and, who you can call a business partner at the same time. @dennisstever and I have been manifesting @travelwithtjd into a beautiful reality and I’m grateful for everything and everyone who has joined our trips, allowing us to make their dream a reality. 
It takes a lot of courage to risk and trust strangers but we’ve managed to always pull through with those we meet along the way on our @travelwithtjd trips. 
Here is to more adventures and to creating beautiful realities and if you haven’t joined us yet, do it!

  • I’d like to wake up here again - without any expectations... even if it’s just for a little while. What about you?
  • This is my far far away 💞 
Where is yours?
  • I read once that “awareness is what keeps any relationship strong”... so, while I understand that we are the master of our own fate, understand that those around you play a major role in your life, but, don’t ever mistake kindness to weakness... 💫
  • Someone said to me today: “Some people are ‘once in a lifetime’ type of people. There is no upgrade after that.” That’s a whole new level of appreciation. 
Hope you have those people in your life. 
Have a beautiful weekend 💞
