Default Who do you use for airline tickets?

Are there any decent travel agents here in Dubai you use to buy your airline tickets?

I'm doing a lot of travelling at the moment but my current travel agent is useless, never returns my calls, I have to source the flights myself on the website and her prices are not that much cheaper than the face price.

Fast efficient friendly service would be great, and good prices would be even better!

You can try Mark Reed at Arabian Pacific Travel, but how hard is it to book a ticket yourself?

Indeed. Just stick your information into http://matrix.itasoftware.com and then book from the airline website.

ive yet to find a fare from a travel agent cheaper than actually going on the carriers website and booking direct.
