| We were travelling from Krakow to Bangkok with Emirates, and flydubai was the operator on the first part of the itinerary, from Krakow to Dubai. We chose this particular flight due to Emirates reputation, and good overall flight duration, due to only 2 hours between one connection and the other. With this being our first experience with flydubai, we were even more surprised to see that the aircraft which was meant for a nearly 6-hour travel has less legroom than low-cost and short-distance flight operators. Next disappointment came with a 40-minute delay in departure causing us a bit of anxiety of whether we will make it on time to our next flight. What came however as the worst part was related to the behaviour of some co-passengers. Several gentlemen sitting behind us obviously had had too much to drink and started acting loudly and would not respond to kind requests to enjoy the flight a bit more quietly. The staff would not only appreciate the remarks of co-passengers being potentially problematic, but continued to sell them alcohol and only at the end of the flight, advised those passengers not to drink anymore on their next flight. This obviously offered no solution to other passengers who had spent hours on board with little possibility to sleep, relax or simply enjoy the flight. Needless to say, due to later departure, we also had to move at high speed across the Dubai airport, and fortunately made it to catch our plane to Bangkok, but it caused us some unnecessary stress especially after a tiring flight. We are displeased to see Emirates partnering with a provider that performs so poorly at all levels, we will not travel with this company again and will discourage others to do so.
