I brought lots of vacuum packed cold cuts into Dubai no problem at all.

Etihad First is way way better then EK business, it is not even a question.

Anyone have an opinion on what's the best points hotel in duabi or palm for relaxing and chilling?

W palm vs waldorf vs ritz carlton Dubai vs park hyatt vs anything else on the top tier?

I dont really care about location in Dubai although al Maha, and the other 2 ritz carltons are too far.

Brought a bunch vacuum packed cold cuts into AUH, no issues even after bags were inspected.

No issues have ever been reported.

Anyone want to add some basic info to the wiki?
