The Detroit bomber was very recently in Dubai. The Somalia incident perhaps accounted for heightened security at Dubai prior to Christmas, and the Detroit incident probably has accounted for even tougher securty at Dubai in the last few days.

Ever heard of a trial balloon? A dry run? Jail time over there for such a crime is probably non-existent. They might even get some free pirate booty.
From the tone of the article, it doesn't sound like it's a common occurrence.
