Dubai-Kabul-Dubai. The price of tickets is very high. It costs more to get to Kabul than to the UK from Dubai. Kam Air were OK on this trip. It was a MD-82 both ways and were were almost on time. The only problem was the return because of some stupid security procedures in the airport. They apologised for that, though it was not their fault. Neither flight was full, so was able to get a row to myself, which helps. Kam Air, along with Safi, is still the best way to get to Kabul from Dubai.
Dubai to Kabul return. Very comfortable flight with edible food. Flight arrived early both directions. Aircraft are a little on the old side, but clean and I assume well maintained. Will be happy to use them again. Great game of musical chairs before take-off. Seat numbers are in English and half the occupants being Afghans read Persian script. After looking round a little confused they have tendency to find free seat and sit down. Air crew resigned and allocate you another seat, which of course has been originally allocated to another still boarding etc etc.
