Get Visa. Fly to dubai or delhi or istanbul or frankfurt (ariana now flies three times a week from there, i think). Then fly to Kabul. Call or email Afghan Logistics (http://www.afghanlogisticstours.com/) in advance, and they drive you to Bagram. Some people have been able to get there directly with the military… I think Danfung Dennis knows the way…
Personally, I fly to Dubai, buy a ticket in the morning on KamAir… and away we go…

I get my visas in Dubai, it’s the quickest and painless place to do it.

You can fly direct from Dubai to Bagram via a cargo company that offers seats for 600$ return. (can’t remember their name, but you should be able to google it) but the problem is that then you have to leave through Bagram/ kandahar as you are not legally in the country. (no stamp in your passport) But if you’re only going for an embed, it’s easier as you don’t need to go through Kabul.

DFS is the cargo and now passenger carrier for Dubai to BAF.

Buying a ticket in advance for KamAir with a authorized travel agent of theirs is no guarantee you’ll have a seat or even be on their manifest when you get to Dubai. Trust me, aint fun.
Peter basically nailed it on the head, but if arriving to and from BAF is ok for ya I’d look into the direct flights. KamAir and Kabul airport are one big mess..

DFS. That’s the one.

As to Kam-air to Kabul, I think Safi is more reliable and you can book them online at www.safiairways.aero without any problems.

Kabul Int. is not a big deal to go through just a lot of walking to the cars area (unless you’re UN).

If you can get a ride on presidential or jingle air to BAF you can just transfer directly to the military airport side when you land in Kabul. Even better if you can avoid BAF and get a direct chopper ride to Shank or any of RC east larger bases with Presidential Air from Kabul.
