I enjoy using this outdated Microsoft Surface tablet so much that I am considering reporting mine broken beyond repair so that I can get a second one. Thanks Emirates, for making it possible to actually buy this dinosaur of technology for only 3035dhs. Bargain!!

Sir, you have been here for a long time now, do you have any valuable bladder and bowel control techniques that I might learn from?

Those leave planners worked their magic again. All my leave when I asked for it.

The background checks they made me apply for were all so thorough & exhaustive and they really contacted all my references before employing me...

It's so reassuring when I pass through the security checkpoint and the screener has their eyes fixed on the screen the entire time, every time. So diligent, I never see them doing anything like checking their phones

Haha...now that did make me chuckle Bus Driver. Last time I heard a certain manager announce in front of the auditorium that "he was working with Boeing and Airbus to design the single pilot cockpit" I just rolled my eyes.

I now realize he's far further along with his trial than I could have imagined!

ahhh Capt... this layover is soooo nice, I feel I should be staying a bit longer 😈

ahhh FO's... he is probably late for pickup updating the EPT. What a nice fella. Should I get him a Cappuccino for the way??
Yes, Purser, you can all go to the bus, he'll be down in a minute.

Emiratis are such safe and courteous drivers, in addition to being wonderful pet owners, domestic employers and parental figures. I think itís grrat seeing 4 children around a hookah pipe eating candy at 0100.
