Look at the static map that every airlines publishes in their in-flight magazine! Emirates Airlines magazine is called Open Skies. They publish it online via a website called issuu.com. Here's the link to the November 2018 issue.
Open Skies, November 2018
See pages 90-95.
The airline will not let you board. The airline risks a fine of several thousand euros if you approach the passport desk before midnight, so your assurance that you will wait is probably not going to be very persuasive.
You should postpone your flight. Because you will enter the Schengen area in Copenhagen, you must arrive there after midnight, that is, ...
No, quite the opposite.
It is always the passenger’s sole responsibility to make sure they have all the right documents (passport, visa, etc. with appropriate validities and so on).
Airlines do not check those documents before boarding for the passenger’s convenience, but because the destination country require them to do so, directly or indirectly: if the ...
After a bit of internet searching it appears that Rwandair and Emirates do not interline baggage with each other. Even if they did, they may not do so on tickets purchased separately like yours. In that case there is no way to avoid collecting your bags at Dubai and rechecking them, aside from traveling with only cabin baggage that fits in the overhead bin ...
Can confirm that AA will honor the One World miles. I flew on a Qantas booked ticket last week, used my AA FF# and the return flight was operated by Emirates and I got the same miles credit as I did on the inbound flight operated by Qantas. Yeah!
“Ok to Board” is a process to authenticate UAE visas for some customers from the South Asia subcontinent. It’s not relevant to your situation. I doubt you’ll get confirmation from Emirates prior to check-in given that airline T&C normally state that travel documents are the passenger’s responsibility.
You mention in a comment that Timatic (the system ...
If it fits, there's a little area next to your seat/by your feet in front. There's a lot of space.
Worst case, they'll likely offer to fetch it for you if you need it during flight. It's less about the weight and more the size.

By coincidence, very recently I flew Dubai->US (I can't remember if it was IAD) and I had a huge ... HUGE ... pile of Nintendo Switch and similar devices in my carry on. No issue. Nobody even noticed. By all means, things can change on a dime but honestly I feel there is not the slightest chance you will have a problem. (Oct 2018.)
If you want,...
You can stay in the airport transit area without a transit visa. There are airside hotels, so you do not necessarily need a visa at all. But if you want to pass immigration and enter Dubai, you can use this process:
Since you booked your flight with flydubai, you can apply for the 96-hour transit visa which lets you leave the airport and enter Dubai. You ...
Yes. If it's all on one-ticket then Emirates will take care of it, it's their problem/issue. Also note emirates pad their connection times anyway, but if the connection becomes tight they will send a rep to the gate to meet passengers for tight connections. If it becomes really tight (due to late departure of first flight) ask a cabin member to ask ground ...
The terms and conditions for Dubai Connect lists the hotels they normally use:
The accommodation provided will be in the Copthorne Hotel Dubai, the Le Méridien Airport Hotel Dubai, the Arabian Park Hotel Dubai or another alternative at the discretion of Emirates. We do not make any guarantee as to the accommodation allocated to you in any manner (e.g. ...
The transfer between terminals may happen automatically for your hold luggage, but you will have to go to Concourse A apron level to take the bus from T3 to T2 in order to get yourself there.
The free showers are only in Terminal 3 Concourses B and C. There are only paid showers in Concourse A. If you have enough time to go to one of them to take a shower ...
From Emirates website:
The total dimensions (length + width + height) of each piece must not
exceed 150 cm (59 inches).
Your maximum dimensions exceed by 9 cms. Emirates is more likely to just ignore this.
Emirates posts and updates extra luggage costs on this webpage. As of today, the cost of extra luggage on flights departing from Australia to New Zealand are 15$ per kg regardless of flight class:
Note that it is cheaper to purchase extra luggage online than at the airport:
Where the baggage allowance on your ticket is based on ...
You always get one boarding pass per plane you enter.
If you booked it in on one ticket, you typically get all boarding passes at first check-in, and your luggage is nearly always checked through - if you bought separate tickets, it's your problem to every time pick your luggage up and check it in again, and get the further boarding passes.
Proof of accommodation is usually required for entry. You can get a copy of letter similar to this and it will be considered a valid proof of accommodation (I used same format many times for my friends visiting me).
Present this letter only if you are asked to present a proof.
To, Immigration Officer, UAE
This is to confirm the invitation of my friend,
Two separated itineraries mean that you will have to re-check your luggage. That means entering Dubai through passport control, pick up the luggage, go to check-in counter of Emirates and drop it off there while receiving your boarding pass to London. You will need to verify that you have the necessary documents to enter Dubai.
If you do not have the proper ...
