Hi all,

This is about my trip back home to Iran and to the Arabic countries in the Persian Gulf area, you can see all parts here:

Toronto to Frankfurt- Air Canada:
Frankfurt to Tehran- Lufthansa- Tehran Pictures:
Tehran- Shiraz- Tehran- Mahan Air:
Tehran to Kuwait- Kuwait Airways:
Kuwait to Dubai- Kuwait Airways:
Dubai to Doha- Qatar Airways:
Doha to Bahrain- British Airways:
Bahrain to Kuwait- United Airlines:
Kuwait to Dubai- Fly Dubai:
Dubai to Vienna- Austrian Airlines:
Vienna to Toronto- Austrian Airlines:

In this segment we were going back to Dubai for the last part of our trip before heading back to Canada. I had no idea that Fly Dubai has its own terminal at Kuwait and when the taxi driver by passed the main terminal I was a bit shocked as I thought he is going the wrong way and then he said that Fly Dubai has its terminal on the other side of the airport.

Then we arrived at the Sheikh Saad Terminal here that is designated to Fly Dubai. The terminal was very tiny with not much to do at all.

Then we went past small secuirty check and passport control to air side- Air side was just a small waiting area with no shops at all.

The only function that worked on the IFE was the flight map and you had to pay extra for the movies

And of course you had to pay for the food too

Kuwait City - KWI


Dubai - DXB



Fly Dubai is a low cost carrier and like any other low cost career they charge you extra for any single option added. The fare seems cheap but when you pay for luggage and pay to pick your seat, order food or watch IFE it may not be very cheap after all. The flight was ok and the cabin was nice. The seats were comfortable too.

    Thanks for your report and the whole routing.
    Your reports include some nice pictures. The bonus about Tehran is really interesting.
    How long was the flight ?
    It's a low-cost so you have to pay for everything but at least the plane is equipped with IFE and you can access the map for free.

      Thanks os much K2World. You are right, even though it is low cost the great thing is that map is still available. The flight was around 1 hour 20 minutes. I'm glad you liked the pictures of Tehran :)

    Thanks for sharing this FR

    Nice pictures as usual

    FlyDubai seems to be a good low cost carrier

    Were the BOB's offers expensive ?

      Thank you lagentsecret. Yes FlyDubai is for sure a nice low cost airline. Sorry I'm not sure what BOB means but if you mean the menu food, I should say that it was not pricey at all. It was priced fairly for sandwich and meals around 8 USD and cheaper for snacks :)

    Hi and thank you for this nice report.
    I´m thinking of flying DXB-KWI as well, can you please tell us what was the exact price for this flight? Sorry if I missed it mentioned somewhere before.
    Thank you,

      Thank you. Yes, for sure. I bought my ticket on Oct. 20, 2014 for my trip on Jan. 16th. This is a one way ticket. Note that I had to pay $13 for each luggage weighing up to 20 KG. If you reserve your seats online it's an additional $1.50 and to pay for your fare with debit or credit card you need to pay extra $4.00 so with all thee extras and tax my total for a one way ticket came up to $117 USD.
