News has come through from a number of people over the past few days that spotting has once again been banned at one of the world’s best-known spotting hotels – the Sheraton Deira in Dubai.
The hotel has a roof-top pool area which is just underneath the approach/departure path of the runways at Dubai International Airport. Hundreds of spotters make use of the facilities every year, either for a purpose spotting trip to Dubai, or at the start or end of a journey further afield whilst transferring through Dubai.
Recent reports state that twitchy holidaymakers reported ‘suspicious’ activity by a spotter on the rooftop, who was then asked by security to stop. The police have now banned spotting there as a result.
