For some reason the flight from Dubai to Melbourne takes a break in Kuala Lumpur after 5689km. It’s not clear what is happening other than we are all deplane with our belongings. The pilot reminded us that there is a death penalty for anyone having drugs!
So we come out of one door and re-nter through another, having our bags x-rayed far more thoroughly than at Gatwick. I had to remove my kettle and aluminium spec case so the lady could see they were harmless.
Now on my 4th airline meal are a couple served earlier:
Well we are all boarding the same plane, same seat for the next leg to Melbourne!
