I have never been on an airline that cared so much for you and the seats were large enough to enjoy a great flight. The food was exceptional. Stewards were kind and helpful.

I returned from the beautiful country of Lebanon on Thursday 12th July. I must say Beirut airport has one of the best security procedures I have witnessed. I would be surprised if anything would go past them. As for Middle East Airlines, it is the best experience I have had with an airline for many many years. The seats are...

I live in Beirut and through my office, am forced to fly MEA. It is a shambles of an airline, an embarrassment to the airline community. They are habitually late (I have been delayed by one hour for a 45 minute flight before), their service on the plane is garbage, their food is substandard, and their hosts are AWFUL! On...

Incompetent employees at best. This is the second time MEA pulls this crap on me and...

I prefer this flight to the equivalent one from British Airways. The extra security measures for pre-boarding are more tolerable with MEA in particular.

Honestly MEA has a lot of potential to be a great airline but their staff is their problem. Their attitude is unprofessional. Other than that the planes are clean and comfortable.

BEY-LHR. I booked the flight to Heathrow at the MEA office in Beirut Airport about 1.5hrs before the flight was due to depart. I arrived at the gate at the time that boarding was due to start however there was a delay of about half an hour before an announcement for boarding was made. There was a good welcome on...
