We recently flew Brisbane to Dublin with a 3 hr stop in Abu Dhabi. The first leg was very good in the 787 and the business class seats were very roomy and comfortable. The second leg was on a very old A330. The business class seating was cramped for me (6'-3") and the cabin had some very noisy passengers. I didn't eat on the first leg but the food on the second was quite good. The airport was packed for the stopover and the lounge was crowded too. A new airport is nearing completion . The sooner the better.
