Why will we never again fly with FlyDubai? They enforce racist regulations against Nepali passengers, that’s why.

This year my wife and I decided to visit my in-laws now living and working in Kathmandu , Nepal. We visited our usual websites to find the cheapest and best flights and we managed to find a decent price on a flight from Venice to Dubai with Emirates (ca. 5 hours) and then Dubai to Kathmandu with FlyDubai (ca. 6 hours), a company we had never heard of before. It turns out that following our BEAUTIFUL flight with Emirates, drinking cocktails, soft drinks and juices for free during, before and after our meal, the FlyDubai flight was pretty terrible. It felt like flying with RyanAir but for 6 hours. All and any food or drinks, including water, were to be paid separately for the entire flight. But the ticket was cheap right?
