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.

  • Found an oasis in the middle of the desert 🌵 
The season has started in the UAE for desert drives and camping! 
Happy Sunday everyone!
  • Click link in bio! ⛵️ I've just announced new dates for our Sailing in The Arctic Wilderness in Norway with @travelwithtjd for February 2019!! Join me together with @dennisstever when we sail the arctic wilderness in search of the northern lights! 
There is a reason why I keep going back to the arctic: now I have the chance to show you. The adventure and feeling in the north surpasses any other I’ve ever experienced before, I have difficulty expressing my feelings that describes the true reality of arctic silence, subzero temperatures and open waters. #TravelwithTJD

  • Maybe, just maybe... a soul mate is someone who makes you feel like anything is possible... Let that sink in 💫
  • Sailing in the arctic... This is becoming my comfort zone 💫 #TravelwithTJD
  • On our first and last night in Tromsø, we woke up with this beautiful view from @radissonblutromso facing the harbor where our boat set sail from. Looking back at the memories, I still can’t believe how lucky we are to experience it all together. Some people at the hotel even said they could see the Northern Lights from here, despite the light pollution! Thank you @radissonblutromso for your incredible hospitality and for the beautiful room upgrade! Can’t wait to be back! #TravelwithTJD @travelwithtjd
  • It was incredibly windy that day as we anchored on the island. Still, we managed to get to shore without falling into the freezing waters and I managed to get the drone up for a while. We kept on joking about it on the zodiac wondering what would happen if one of us falls off! I would have wanted someone to save my camera first! 😊 What will you save first? #TravelwithTJD @travelwithtjd
  • I’ve always dreamed of sailing in the arctic and now, it’s been a re-occurring reality for me. To me, this is my reality, this is where I’m in my element, this is my life, with my camera in one hand... when I return right here, doing the things I love the most and where everything is far better than my dreams... everything in between is just a phase. You may or may not agree, but this is my back to reality life and I hope you see yours too 💫 #TravelwithTJD @travelwithtjd
  • This is my second time right here on this spot. The first time I found this place, we were sailing in the arctic for the midnight sun and this time, in search of the Northern Lights on @travelwithtjd and both times with Dennis @dennisstever 
There is an unexplainable power that draws me to this island. Maybe because it’s uninhabited, with only a church and a graveyard... Or maybe it’s the rugged raw landscape and how comfortable I am with silence. Whatever it is, I wanted to show them what magic looks like. #TravelwithTJD
  • My beautiful reality shared with the sweetest and bravest new guests on @travelwithtjd 
On the first night, we arrived in Tromsø at @radissonblutromso and got ready to set sail in the arctic the next morning with @pukkatravels 
Emotions were running high, one of the bravest people I met on our group, strangers sailing alone together, they found the chance to do that one thing they never imagined they would, one opportunity to jump on, they took a deep breath, and felt the rush of adrenaline. . . 
Thank you @dennisstever for capturing this moment ♥️ #TravelwithTJD
  • Nothing but raw arctic wilderness and no place I’d rather be! 
Can you spot the snowmobile on the frozen lake?
  • I’m ready for the most incredible season of adventures beyond the arctic wilderness with our @travelwithtjd trips!
Are you? ♥️ PS: that’s the sun the clouds behind there!
