Honestly ... sometimes i wonder why i even bother with Emirates at times. Why do they have such lousy schedules of their flights from the UK (and most of Europe). Most tend to leave around midday arriving in Dubai very late (in my case from Newcastle arriving at midnight, thus everything will be closed), and then the returns are usually first thing in the morning ... THUS you basically miss out on two days vacation.
Isn't it about time they got some better time slots?
