Its all about the $$$

We all have the choice, unfortunately its not so easy having committed to living in Dubai. Nothing prepares you for hidden expense of setting up here. When that is finally accepted and paid off, Flydubai have the audacity to come up with this crap ! Nice move guys, I'm outta here asap !

I would not go to Afghanistan given the choice.

Give the flights to the volunteers for a few hundred extra DHS !

How many civilian movements, you mean? Not many. We're there once a week with a large cargo aircraft. I don't see many other civil movements. Plenty of F16s, UAVs, C130s etc.
... and it's a very good indication of how high is the risk!

I can't say I feel 100% comfortable flying into Kandahar
... and you shouldn't unless you airplane has an RWR with chaff and flares dispenser!And even with those toys ... Everybody know the level of corruption over there and only US has the clear picture of threats/manpads! (4 eyes nations only ... UAE isn't in that circle)
How much money your life cost? How much money you family think your life is worthy ... get a very good life insurance ... at least someone would be really happy!
Try to get access to ISAF intelligence open sources ...

There are actually quite a few. Kamair fly in there a few times a day, as do Ariana. Iran Aseman also come in there a few times a week in their 727. That's the scheduled civvy side of things.

The biggest issue is actually going to be finding sufficient space on Juliet Ramp, which is adjacent to the terminal building, and the only civilian apron. It's congested enough as it is, and often the larger jets are left waiting on a taxi way, while the preceding aircraft is waiting for start.

Enjoy the incessant jamming , sometimes enough to stop all movements for over an hour. Luckily the yank ATC's are pretty jacked when it comes to slotting in traffic and keeping the flow of traffic moving. You may want to keep your TCAS set to it's lowest range when going in there though...
