    DXB-MCT 40mins EMB 175

    Quick boarding (it is a small plane), nice shoulder room and legroom, departed on time, blasted off like a homesick angel, got an orange juice and a hot apricot roll.

    Before I knew it, we were on final and sailed through arrivals, buying my visa at Travelex and collecting my waiting case.

    Was in the Crowne Plaza at Ruwi within an hour of the wheels touching.

    Wish it was always this easy.

    Hi Fdos – not been to Muscat for ages and have very find memories of Oman and the people. The Embraers are great aircraft, only been on them once but they are comfy, fast and smooth.Well done again for being a reliable provider of flight reports – some other regular posters could learn from you and Tom in Scotland etc!

    Had I known this website a few years back, I would have posted -probably the only- reviews for Cronus Air, Air Manos, Hellas Jet, Macedonian Airlines and Air Greece.

    Nice little hop.. Did you originate in DXB for this journey.

    I visited my cousin in Muscat and flew LCY-FRA-DXB with LH stopped there for 3 days and took the DXB-MCT hop with LX.

    As I already had a GCC entry stamp in my passport, (Dubai), I did not need to purchase the visa on arrival and was through in 8 minutes of touchdown.

    Yes, I had stayed in Dubai overnight, so my flight originated from DXB, but I had to pay for a visa, as my onward after MCT was BAH, not DXB and the rules say kerchingggggg 😉

    Oh I though that all GCC states shared visas..
