DXB – JED: I approached Emirates boarding desk in Dubai Airport and presented my boarding pass. The lady took one glance at me, smiled and tore it up. I was aghast. Was about to question her … just then saw her punched a few keys into the computer, looked up at me and smiled. “Sir, we’re upgrading you to Business Class”. OMG. I thanked her, smiled gleefully and proceeded to the departure lounge. Thank you, Emirates.
