FlyDubai is super stripped down so be prepared to go a little rustic on travel. Staff was friendly and responsive but you’re gonna pay for a cup of coffee. :/. Seats were no more uncomfortable than any other discount airline and they did have a USB port. The tv didn’t work all that well but I require closed captions anyway so wasn’t interested in purchasing any programming. I didn’t see anybody purchasing the entertainment but then again my flight was a red eye. We had a safe flight and all our bags made it to the destination no problem. One flight they could have used a bit more a/c.
