I'm planning to travel from the UK to NZ in early 2015. The cheapest flights (Qantas) have a connection via Dubai.
I have more than one citizenship, so I can avoid using an Israeli passport (phew), but I'm still concerned that I might be stopped at some point due to my surname, "Yehudi", which literally translates to "Jew" in both Hebrew and Arabic. I'm not a religious Jew, but that's pretty much beside the point I should imagine.
Does anyone else with a markedly Jewish name have experience passing through Dubai, or does anyone know of cases when it may have been done safely?
