Check In: Average Functional when it comes to cabin crew which does not reflect the local culture. Food: Average too good. BUT late in both directions. Going out one hour late; no reason given Late leaving Beirut. No reason given. Viewing their history for this route most flights are late in arriving. So I may return to British Airways

Nice Staff, enough legroom, on time departure/arrival 99% of the time, the 1% is Force Majeure. Food is acceptable, can be better, always the best smooth landing than whatever other airlines I tried (and I traveled a lot...) I wish, however, if they don't switch off the movies immediately after announcing that we will be landing, i do not see...

First Time travelling with the middle east airlines from beirut to Dubaï down an A 320 aircraft on economy class. How can I say about this journey? It was simply amazing, the comfort on board, the meal, the space and the cabin crew everything gets reunited to spend a pleasant flight. Thank you MEA......😍 it was my first time flying...

MEA is a very good airlines, the services are good however, the flight from Geneva to Beirut is becoming a bad experience due to the delay waiting the flights coming from North America.

Overall experience is great; the pilots have always the best landings; hostesses are friendly and always smile. For me, it's one of the best airlines.
