What do you think about the free companion ticket offer? Have you flown FlyDubai before? How was your experience?
Attractive deal if you want to fly off-beat destinations. FlyDubai has new & well maintained aircraft.
However, FlyDubai Terminal 2 in Dubai is best avoided. Lounge is the only sort of escape from the inhospitable terminal facilities and crowded passenger terminal.
Please note – Do not let your hand-baggage be surreptitiously tagged by the FlyDubai ground staff at the boarding gate (no aerobridge); else while boarding the plane your hand-baggage will be placed in cargo hold (mainly due to low overhead space).
