were planning to visit my sister Ginny and her husband Vincent (my brother from
another mother and affectionately known to us as 'Sern') in Abu Dhabi again, having
visited them more than four years ago for Christmas. We had a quite
rip-roaring time the last time, and was eager to see what UAE had in store for
us this time around.
made our plans and booked our flight with Air Arabia (Kuala
Lumpur to Sharjah G9924) well over a month earlier, scheduled as follows:
we customarily do with other airlines, we waited until it was exactly 48 hours
before flight departure to check-in with Air Arabia’s website but failed.
- Departure 21 Jan 2020 03:00 (MY time)
- Arrival 21 Jan 2020 06:50 (AE time)
that Air Arabia only allows check-within 24 hours of flight departure we tried
again early this morning. We again failed.
at 9am this morning we made a call to Air Arabia’s representative office in
Kuala Lumpur and was advised to make inquiries in person with Air Arabia’s
check-in counter at KLIA!
made our way to KLIA and found Air Arabia’s check-in counter closed. We then
inquired with KLIA’s general information counter and was told that Air Arabia
only allows physical check-in 3 hours before flight departure time. In other
words, we will have to make sure that we get to Air Arabia’s check-in counter
by midnight later.
enough, we were at KLIA to catch our flight to Sharjah by 11.30pm but not
before ensuring that our luggage was securely wrapped.

|if the seal is broken we will know its been tampered with|
|we're supposed to leave it and report to Customs!|
We were pleasantly surprised that Air Arabia’s check-in counter opened a quarter to midnight and we duly checked in.
So begins our Arabian adventure!
