Bye Bye Qantas

Don’t kiss, don’t swear: rules of a Dubai stopover

Australians travelling through Dubai have been warned they are at risk of fines or jail for cultural misdemeanours as simple as holding hands in public, swearing, harassing women with a prolonged stare or wearing inappropriate clothing.

Culture clash … swimwear is appropriate by the pool or on the beach in Dubai but frowned on elsewhere. Low-cut dresses or tops, short skirts and short dresses are not recommended in public.

One thought on “Bye Bye Qantas”

  1. Dear Mr Joyce. I have never and never will travel on Emirates, Etihad or any Arab airline, likewise Malaysia etc. If going on Qantas means being dumped in Dubai then Singapore Airlines or similar will get my custom instead.
