Dubai accommodation

Good evening all,

Just wanted to ask those who work out in the desert if it's easy enough to take the housing allowance in emirates and use it towards sharing a place with others, do many of you guys do this?
Where is the best place to live?
Also is there any news on when the 787 will be brought in?

He thinks he can take the allowance and share with others, now that's funny.

Why can't you share the allowance? Can someone explain how it works?

If you take the money, you can do whatever you want with it. Go live in a cardboard box. They couldn't care less. (So far!)

Trouble is you can't take the money unless you are brave enough to buy somewhere.

you can if your a new joiner, but if your not, then you can only get the allowance to buy.
