A short but interesting article on the joys of operating a Dubai-Kabul air route.

I came back from a short holiday in Beirut on Monday, using FlyDubai, Dubai’s excellent new low cost carrier. They share a terminal with some Afghan carriers.

The mix of people around the baggage carousel was interesting. Lots of very solid looking Brits and Americans, presumably ‘security’ contractors, standing next to poor Afghans, who I expect were labourers. Both groups equally as tough as the other, in their own way.
