When I booked my ticket I indicated for vegetarian meal. But the airline were not aware of this. It was quite embarrassing for both sides as I had to say no to the food initially offered and they had to check the details registered and vegetarian food did not come up. They had to put together food which they could find. Second point was baggage at Birmingham airport in return journey. Flight landed early which was good, passport control was quick, but then arrival of bags was slow. It took a good 40mins for bag to come. When everything else of timing is good and then have to wait so long for bags - that is not good.

Flydubai airlines was a disappointment; for nearly a five hour journey, it didn't offer any drinks, light snacks or even a blanket. There was no entertainment on board. All these had to be paid for in addition to the fare which seems absolutely ridiculous!

I spent extra money for earlier flight to arrive in my destination. All my money and effort was wasted when Emirate flight frome LHR did not leave on time or arrive in time at DBX to catch next flight to YGN. I am very disappointed with the service I received.
