It is indeed a nice airport however its standards are dropping alarmingly. When it first opened, the only complaints were the long walks that passengers had to take in order to get to the main concourse and subsequently to the gate. Thats a rather silly complaint in my opinion because you have to walk a long way in all major international airports.

However now ... for some reason there are problems with the A/C the atmosphere inside the concourse can get a bit muggy and hot ... which isnt very pleasant. Toilets and their conditions is a major problem. There is an utter lack of seating for economy class passengers ... you have people lying or sitting on the floor right across the concourse and this is not the best of sites to see really. THere are also major staff problems ... the Duty Free staff are on the whole rude and the Security, passport control etc personnell are intolerably rude.

Anyway ill end my rant there !

I've actually been told by a Dubai forumer that this concourse is built such that it can be literally "moved" to the new Jebel Ali Int'l Airport someday, which is the airport that'll eventually replace the current Dubai Int'l. COOL!!! :cheers: :cheers: :cheers:

^ Actually I believe this one, because they're investing U.S. $4 Billion in this current airport while its replacement is breaking ground. It would make sense to build a satellite concourse that can be moved to the new site once needed. :)

Thats how much its going to cost to keep the terminal in one piece, the $4b is not for the terminal alone but for the expansion of the whole airport that includes the building of a road tunnel under the entire airport.
Much of the new concourse is underground, unlike the present where baggage/ immigration is handled in a seperate landside building linked by a tunnel to the existing satellite, it will all be done underground eliminating the need for a ling tunnel walk.
I would gladly eat my shorts if they are indeed able to shift the whole concourse by over 30 Km :cheers:
