Enough time between flights

Hi Everyone,

I have a quick question about my flight with Emirates to Bangkok. I have a layover in Dubai of 2 hours 25 minutes on the way and only 1 hour 40 minutes on the way back, I didn't think anything of it when booking but now I've read on forums that you need longer layovers in Dubai and people are quite often missing their flights :-/

I've never travelled long haul with stops before and I'm travelling alone so now I'm in a blind panic that I will miss my flights, has anyone done this flight? Is it enough time? And will it be fairly simple changing over given both flights are with Emirates? Will I have to collect my luggage and go through passport control and then check in and go through sercurity for my new flight? I really have no clue how it works and I'm cursing myself for leaving it too late to get a direct flight with Thai Airways now!

Any advice would be much appreciated.

Many thanks :)

we have a 1 hour 40 minute stop over at Dubai when we are flying from Glasgow to Singapore with Emirates. Will I have enough time to shop in duty free?

You might. No one can say for sure.

Not a whole lot of time I would say unless you know exactly what you want.

It takes time to deplane and commute within the airport.

I wouldn't think so. It's borderline.
