Transit at JFK - Heading to Miami

After a long tiring flight, around 08.30 am April 13'2010 arrived in JFK International Airport New York. Flew with Emirates EK 203 Boeing 777-300 from Dubai at 02.00 am. This flight sometimes experienced little turbulence. The flight was okay eventhough there's barely vacant seat like as the flight from CGK - Dubai. To kill the time, again another movies were the best friend to chat with!

Arrived at Dubai International Airport - Heading to Miami

Took off from Soekarno Hatta International Airport (CGK) at 05.30 pm (ID time) on April 12'2010 and finally arrived at Dubai (DXB) 11.10 pm local time in the same day (02.10 am ID time April 13'2010). With Emirates flight EK 357 Boeing 777-300 and good service, luckily with almost all the seats were vacant made it nice and enjoyable flight...exactly 3 vacant-seats only for me:) So it's nice to lay down the back and relax after the Avatar and Sherlock Homes movies to watch.
Good complimentary dinner to have, the Glass Noodles and Chicken salad for the appetiser, Grilled Dory Fish with lemon butter (tasteless but it's okay) as main course, and the dessert was a really good Vanilla Mousse, with many choices of juices or tea/coffee for the beverages even you can ask the wines, spirit, beers, liqueurs and soft drinks. The flight was smooth, warm service from the cabin crews...nice touch to start the journey to US. We're 11 crews heading to Westerdam that will be docked at Miami, and 4 crews to Noordam that docks at Fort Lauderdale.
