After our aircraft en route to Venice had returned to field to Dubai, the crew scheduling gave me a Luanda flight the next day. We did not have a layover though. We just operated going to Luanda and were operating as passengers back to Dubai. The airport was undergoing major repairs so flights to Luanda were all cancelled. Our flight was only used to transport back the crew that were still in Luanda.
The flight going was very light. Naturally, it was very easy. Going back was even better. We were seated in Business class as passengers and still paid for half of the flying time. 🙂
