Dubai booked - to go or not to go

I saw a thread on someone wondering if they should go to Florida with the Iran USA thing going on. Well Im at the other end. Dubai Atlantis the palm booked for July ten nights - considering cancelling and losing my 400 deposit - Im just feeling the fear to be honest. I was so looking fwd to it but just feel the excitement has gone now :/

I would definitely go.
By July this could be long forgotten about.

Far too early to be making decisions for July - the FCO website is your source of info re safety.

We are due to travel to Jordan in 3 weeks.

I have contacted our tour guides and we are following the FCO advice and will see what happens, we subscribed to updates too. Our tour company in Jordan have advised we can amend our tour too if travel to places we where going isnt recommended.

We are following the situation and if the advice is not to travel then we wont. From our own discussions if the FCO dont advise against travel to Jordan well still go but you need to feel happy yourself.

Dubai will be fine, I'd have no hesitation in going.

I wouldn't cancel yet - or at all! Subscribe to the FCO updates, and if you know anyone who has a membership to a service like the one offered by Control Risks, ask them to keep you updated. I work in an industry that means I have to monitor the situation very closely and right now I'd be happy going to Dubai. I sent my MIL home to New Zealand yesterday via Qatar - she was nervous, but we had all the right assurances in place before she left.

With regards to flights if you look on Flight Radar 24 for the routes that the planes are taking they are staying clear of that area at the moment. Any Dubai to UK flight is going via northern Turkey and Heathrow to Perth (QF9 & QF10) was going over India and Pakistan to clear that area. Limited knowledge of politics in the area but they are less likely to upset their neighbours in UAE and Jordan (give or take Qatar relations lately). Keep an eye on FCO for their advice.
