No, you cannot claim a VAT refund on flight tickets as a tourist in the UAE. The VAT refund scheme for tourists only applies to goods purchased within the UAE from retailers participating in the 'Tax Refund for Tourists Scheme' and exported out of the UAE within 90 days from the date of purchase. Services, such as flight tickets, are not eligible for a VAT refund under this scheme.

No, flight tickets are zero-rated.

I believe yes, as a tourist, you may have an opportunity to refund VAT on air tickets  You can inquire with the relevant authorities or visit the official website of the tax refund scheme in Dubai, or consult a tax consultant.
