The ever-helpful Sharjah Airport website reports that old friends British Gulf International's flight BGK1222 from Bagram AFB is delayed, expected in at 1630. The Irbis flight from Riyan is also running late, but the corresponding BGK1221 to Bagram got off all right, as did another to a destination given as "unknown".
Would passengers for the 1422 British Gulf International Airlines flight to Unknown please go to gate 0? Passengers are reminded that all Kalashnikovs must be placed in your checked baggage..
The usual BGIA, Irbis and Phoenix flights to Iraq from Dubai are also on time.
