Quick summary

Departure out of Tokyo was pretty smooth with excellent ATC from the team. After reaching cruising altitude, I hit strong headwinds, setting me back a little. Managed to make up some time during the final third of the flight luckily. Arrival into Dubai was pretty good. Encountered more traffic than I usually see at Dubai which was a pleasant surprise.
