As much as I love Emirates their connection times when flying to Kolkata is absolutely awful the moment you get off EK40 in Dubai your bussed to the A or B Gates of Terminal 3 and the Kolkata Flight EK570 is almost always put at C gates so you have and the saddest thing is your given a 45 MIN -1 HOUR to make the connection so you have to run from the A or B gates all the way to the C gates. The worst is by the time you get to the C gates with your 50 Million bags of World Duty Free Shopping and Hand Luggage Your flight is on Final Call and full so the moment you board everyone gives you that guilty stare for delaying the flight and even worse everyone has taken the overhead locker spaces so your forced to sit in your seat with covered with 50 Million World Duty Free Bags and some how managing to find a place to put your Hand Luggage. The great thing is Thank You Emirates for always delaying EK570 for us so at least I make it Kolkata on time and not having to worry about missing my flight.These are all from a quick look at Skyscanner without going to in depth.
Emirates have connections with the best looking at between 1-2 hours in DXB for both journeys.
Turkish are very similar with 1h 45 in IST outbound and 2hr return.
Qatar have good connections on QR36 (out) and QR33 (in), the other days are quite a bit longer.
Sorry Jenny but personally i am fed up with the teasers that are supposedly protected by legal/financial restraints.Please leave the poor chap alone. Information is probably financially and/or legally sensitive thus no further teasers.
A nice bit of unexpected perhaps?
