Virgin flight?

We are returning to Dubai next month and was wondering if Virgin still park up away from the terminal and bus the passengers in or since the new terminal has been built do the go up to the gate now?

Last year we flew with Emirates who are ok but prefer Virgin due to being flying club members and like to obtain our points with them.

Returned the end of July and can confirm the flight went up to the gate. Last year however like you said they would bus the passengers.

Enjoy, wish I was going back next month too. Absolutely love it there.

Hmmmm, probably best contact Virgin...maybe if Airport ground-control have a good day, they might allocate the aircraft nose-in parking position at the Fingerdock.

Sounds good, not that being bused is an issue just wondered if they were still doing it.

Counting the days down until we go even though on this occasion its a 3 night stay.
