I embark today on a visa run to Abu Dhabi. Normally this is a simple 40 minute direct flight, however with the GCC countries no longer being neighborly I had to fly through either Kuwait, Jordan or Oman to get to Abu Dhabi from Qatar.
My first flight on Oman Air was slightly delayed. I made my connection – however my bags did not. Neither bag made it. I filed a claim with Etihad (second flight) and will eventually get my bags – I hope.
