British Airways pilots – many of whom operated the inaugural 787-9 Dreamliner flight from London Heathrow to Abu Dhabi International Airport and Muscat International Airport – accompanied Margot at the event.

The 787-9 features four cabins: World Traveller (economy), World Traveller Plus (premium economy), Club World (business class), and the new First cabin – which was created specifically for the aircraft.

The new First suites were designed based on feedback from First customers to ensure comfort was at the heart of the experience.

Jake Gyllenhaal wins Variety’s ‘International Star of the Year’

Oscar-nominee Jake Gyllenhaal will be presented with Variety‘s ‘International Star of the Year’ Award at the Dubai International Film Festival running from December 9 to 16.

Variety, the premier source of entertainment news, annually presents this award to a great film personality at the Dubai International Film Festival in acknowledgment of their outstanding contribution to the industry.

Gyllenhaal shot to world attention in 2001 as the title role in the cult phenomenon psychological thriller, Donnie Darko, for which he received an Independent Sprit nomination for Best Actor. Among his best known roles are leads in Sam Mendes’ Jarhead (2005), his BAFTA-winning performance in Ang Lee’s Brokeback Mountain (2005), David Fincher’s Zodiac (2007), Jim Sheridan’s Brothers (2009), Duncan Jones’ Source Code (2011) and Denis Villeneuve’s Prisoners (2013).

Gyllenhaal’s raw talent and commitment to his craft was showcased this past year in Dan Gilroy’s thrilling Nightcrawler (2014) for which he was recognized for his remarkable performance as a compelling sociopath with Golden Globe, SAG and BAFTA Award nominations. Gyllenhaal also served as a Producer on the film.

Further flexing his acting muscles, he underwent a punishing regimen to transform himself into champion boxer Billy Hope for Antoine Fuqua’s Southpaw. Most recently, Gyllenhaal got to grips with the challenge of playing Scott Fischer in Baltasar Kormákur’s account of the ill-fated 1996 climbing expedition, Everest, and his latest performance which adds to his impressive filmography is Jean-Marc Vallee’s highly anticipated Demolition.

“Jake Gyllenhaal’s promise as an actor was clear almost from the beginning of his illustrious career. ‘Donnie Darko’ is a cult classic and his work in films such as ‘October Sky,’ ‘The Good Girl’ and ‘Moonlight Mile’ signaled the emergence of a major new acting talent,” said Steven Gaydos, Vice President, Executive Editor, Variety.

An exclusive public ‘In Conversation’ with Jake Gyllenhaal Q&A event will be held during the course of the Festival.

    Using just the power of light, every Astron GPS Solar watch connects to the GPS network and automatically adjusts, at the touch of a button, to every time zone on earth, showing the time with a precision of one second every 100,000 years.

    Now, with the new Dual-Time caliber, you can read not only the time where you are, but also the time in your home time zone on a simple 12 hour sub-dial with a separate AM/PM indicator. In addition, the day of the week is displayed in a retrograde display at the 2 o’clock position, with the date at the 4 o’clock position.

    The date is correct every day until February 28, 2100. Thanks to the electronic setting function in the crown, the watch is simple to operate and a joy to wear. Global travel is stressful. Travel with Astron is a bit less so.

    With a brown dial and crocodile leather strap, the rose-gold color highlights and the black ceramic bezel, the new Novak Djokovic Limited Edition combines sport and elegance. Each watch has its own individual serial number and carries Novak’s signature on the case back. The watch is offered in a special presentation box, with a card carrying a personal message from Novak.
