I have travelled to Dubai from Cairo and Khartoum. It goes without saying that travelling by Emirates is the best way to fly because of their up to date aircraft and friendly service.Having your own private screen is better than trying to see the overhead screen.
But, I had no complaints to make when travelling by Egyptair either. My most interesting trip was by cargo plane, sitting in a small compartment behind the cockpit. No windows, no service, no seat belts, and just a huge empty space in the body of the plane where normally passengers would sit.
On arrival in Dubai there is a long passenger conveyer track or walk to the immigration area; though arriving from Khartoum we had a long bus ride [almost an hour] to get to Immigration. There the queues are quite long , unless you have a fasttrack card, but once at the desk there is no problem if you have a visa or are travelling on a passport that allows free
entry. Nowadays anyone can have 96 hours without a visa. My British passport gives me 60 days.
The luggage may have arrived on the carrousel, or come soon after you reach it.
