in addition to my Kuala Lumpur airport question (another thread, already answered by you fabulous TripAdvisor-members!), I have another question - this time concerning my flight BACK from New Zealand. Sorry for such a newbie question, but I only flew one time in my life yet and now, of all things, I am starting with a complicated 20.000-kilometers-travel ... Yes, I am nervous.
It concerns the following: I want to take the Emirates flight 419 from Christchurch to Dubai. Some sites confusingly shows this as a 22-hours-Nonstop-flight (I guess that's even not possible with one single tankful ...). Other sites, and this seems correct, show two stops in Sydney and Bangkok. Both stops with 1 hour 30 waiting each, the whole route keeps the same flight number.
So: How do I have to imagine this? Am I under the correct impression that I will the travel with the same machine from the same gate the whole time, just having some free time between it where they re-tank it and I can leave the plane? Or will I have to find a new gate every time like with a "real" connection flight? If it is always the same plane just with some "between stop" (a bit like a train), this probably is the easiest connection for me.
If anybody could give me a note if I am right or wrong, I would be grateful. Thanks to you all, really, really appreciated!Edited: 01 June 2012, 18:31
