I feel it necessary to mention that I just noticed that the flght from JFK to Dubai is 12 hours and 45 minutes. Yep. Read it again. Holy Smokes! Thankfully they offer gluten free meals to passengers who reserve them ahead of time, and thankfully the travel agent thought of that.
12 hours and 45 minutes. That is a LOT of time to catch up on sleep, organize the ol' inbox, and catch up with myself....and a few in flight movies too.
On the way home, we get an extra hour of traveling time! I might be so excited about it then.
