    Hey guys'
    I have a hunt booked in Mozambique in August and I have purchased airline tickets with Emirates flying thru Dubai then on to Joburg. Two part question:

    1) I've heard good things about Emirates, does anyone here have first hand knowledge?

    2)They are telling me that transiting thru Dubai is not a problem with firearms. Has anyone done this?

    Any info will be greatly appreciated!

    i have flown in business class about 6 times with emirates and they were very good. about transiting with firearms, i think you have to apply for a clearance for your firearms to transit dubai airport . emirates should be able to arrange this for you, or get your travel agent to liase with them.

    Thanks Spike.t I have submitted the paperwork to Emirates, just was wondering if anyone had any first hand knowledge of the process.
