Well organised pre flight, but cramming five + pilot into a small space inexcusable. We never flew near or above the main attractions, they were always to your left or right. Wecomplained afterwards and were told flights over the Burj Khalifa were prohibited, yet the promo film shows exactly that. Very disappointing 10 mins

You are using a ploy to include customers, then you say there is momentum and you have agreed to more than one option presented to you, and the reservation has not been made. You must inform the authorities about your work
