As an ATC working in the Middle East for many years, you would be staggered at the number of times we had to ask pilots "Where are you tracking to"

It was mandatory for ATC to issue a route clearance, and obtain a correct readback, for EVERY aircraft that entered the FIR. On many occasions the readback was correct but they then flew a different route. Go figure.
