Hey, that is not what I thought would be the case at all!!!

I am looking into this as we 'post'. I doubt we would have run the prize trip if we knew that was the case.... to be continued!

Sam
ps. I copied the description sent to us by the contact person, hence it leaving out the return bit. I just assumed it was, but someone wrote that very well (probably an ex-insurance terms and conditions writer!)

[ Edit: ps added ]

Hi Sam,
You are totally right, the one who wrote it is "a specialist". In the last mail they sent me they were very specific: ONE ECONOMY CLASS return ticket to Dubai from Kiev or Bucharest on KLM only.
Well, I guess I am just not used to pay for the gifts I receive! :) So I am a little confused about planning this trip.

Hmm, did the email say they were offering you a RETURN ticket (see above)? I thought this wasn't the case based on your first post? Let me know...

Sam
ps. I am also looking into this from our end. The person that arranged the prize for us never mentioned this specifically (or vice versa)....

Sam,
It depends from where you look at this. For them, as they are staying in Dubai, the flight from Bucharest to Dubai is a Return flight. So that's exactly what they were writing in the e-mail.
But if I look at this from Moldova, I am still missing the return flight from Dubai back home.
I am checking other agencies as I will most probably not want to buy the missing ticket from KLM.

Hi Ionela,

Still, if they said it was a 'return' ticket to Dubai from Bucharest, that means a flight from Bucharest to Dubai and back. Otherwise they should have said a one way ticket since where they are located is irrelevant.

Could you send me through the details on email so I can look into it a bit more? You can use the [email protected] email address and just mention it's to my attention in the subject.

Sam

I am happy to say that the flight is definitely a return flight after confirming this with KLM. Just a misunderstanding of the terms used in different continents to explain this :)

So, Ionela will be flying from either Kiev or Bucharest to Dubai and back!

Cheers,

Sam

Dear all,
I am so glad it all clarified and maybe I owe an apology to KLM Marketing Department. I didn’t mean bad!
Thank you Sam for your help.
I am looking forward to travel to Dubai!

bit of a surprise to come across this thread! i live in dubai and would be happy to give any advise, tips, tours etc - if you need any info or whatever you can send me a private message on here or email me on [email protected]

i know the hotel you're staying at quite well ... its a nice hotel and i go shooting there quite often (clay pigeon shooting before anyone gets the wrong idea! ) ... its a bit far away from the main attractions of dubai but is a nice tranquil hotel nonetheless.

anyway like i said - if u need any help etc, get in touch.

cheers,

Nas.

Dear Nabeel,
That's great you volunteered to help. I could really use some. Could you give me an idea how much will a taxi cost from the airport to the hotel?
Thanks a lot,
Take care,
Ionela
