We better hurry up and give up all that flying to other airlines before it’s taken away from us..

I don't see anyone saying we should give that flying up. Now that it is ours, the dangers associated with these places are relevant topics, and those going should be informed. If it's outside someone's comfort zone, they'll know not to bid it. Leaves it for someone junior who does want it.

Why not push for Bagram, Baghdad, Pyongyang and Tehran for gateways? Somalia is great for a layover too.

Baghdad had one of the best bars ever. Bagram not so much but Kabul…I’ll take a layover there any day. As long as the shoe clerks go to bed early…

Pyongyang and Tehran are probably safer than SDF on any given day.

I would go visit Tehran any day of the week. Beautiful mix of cultures, religions, food, drinks and very intelligent young people. That place next to Seoul where it tells you on the DP you will be shot if you cross it’s FIR boundary is a hard pass for me 😁. (Though ideally I’d visit there too)

I wouldn’t know because I was too busy getting shot at working from COP’s in both AO’s. Glad you had fun.

considering I served with multiple deployments including Somalia, Iraq and Afghanistan and have bullet holes in me, No, I don’t. As far as you calling me “Karen”. You’d be biting a pillow crying for your mommy if you were on the the ground there. You’d also be the first whining that UPS put you in harms way and should have never forced you to fly there if something went down. Hell, you won’t do layovers in HKG because of COVID protocols that were in place there. Thanks for the laughs Pillow Biter

Better go before the end of next month. In September we're getting this generations version of the fall of Saigon.
