Dubai Flights Have Been Delayed Or Cancelled Due To Poor Weather Conditions
The weather has been the kind that you would shut out with curtains because it’s not such a pretty sight. It’s been all sort of sand and dust, reducing the visibility that residents couldn’t see the Burj Khalifa or the person standing right next to them.
Flights of course were affected by this that over 10 flights were redirected, some were postponed and some were just cancelled.
Dubai International Airport stated that 10 inbound flights were diverted to Dubai World Central (DWC) and “other neighbouring airports”

Passengers have sent many complaints to Dubai Airports to sort out all the flight delays
@EmiratesSupport horrendous experience here at @DubaiAirports flight delayed by 5 and a half hours and counting…keep moving the delay time by an hour…no communication from staff at all. Feeling very ignored. Not good enough.

Passengers using Emirates to travel to Dubai have also experienced flight cancellations

Those flying from MAN to DXB were offered a hotel stay after 5 hours of delay
@EmiratesSupport #ek0020 (Man to Dubai) was delayed yesterday. Passengers left standing for five hours straight. No seats, or snacks, offered. Senior citizens, babies and passengers (with hidden disabilities) were not supported. Hotels were not confirmed until after 5 hours. #sad

Passengers have been so frustrated with the lack of adequate communication from the airlines
@EmiratesSupport my flight has been cancelled to Dubai from Manchester until tomorrow due to a sandstorm. The communication from Emirates staff is truly appalling! We are currently stood in an extremely long queue……no idea where we are going….nobody has bothered to tell us!

Many reported LONG queues at check-in and transit desks with little information provided as to why
No more taking @emirates
Almost 3 hours standing in connections desk line
100s of people are still waiting like me
If in their hub Dubai airport this is their ability to manage things, they should stop operations
