Flight BEY-LHR in Business Class. Check in quick and efficient at Beirut airport very good lounge at Beirut with lot of drinks and food. Flight on time efficient service but crew could be more smiley. I really enjoyed the flight and happy to know they will be joining skyteam next year as Air France and KLM are becoming less attractive.

Geneva-Beirut. I could not fault this airline's efforts. They had to deal with an influx of connecting passengers from the US who did not have their seats assigned until prior to boarding yet dealt with it nicely. Onboard their was a wide smile welcome the service efficient (although some of the attendants could learn to smile) and the seats wide enough though in need of updating. The pilot spoke Arabic English and French and we were well informed throughout. I would be more than happy to fly them again especially because their Business Class fares were half those of it's competitors.

BEY-CDG in Economy. New A320 with comfortable seats and IFE. Food was very good. The only thing which I did not like is the absence of any info from the flight deck (e.g. turbulence areas).

Athens to Beirut roundtrip. Both flights departed early and capacity was around fifty percent. Service was great on both flights. MEA staff even managed to retrieve luggage from 45 minute late connecting Continental flight leaving only 15 minutes to connect. Light snack and newspapers offered on both 1.5 hour flights.

LHR-BEY A330-200 aircraft. On climb-out from LHR aircraft was struck by lightning which in itself was quite dramatic and clearly caused some discomfort to a number of passengers. However there was no announcement of reassurance from the flightdeck - in fact there were no announcements from the flight-deck during the entire flight. Mention needs to be made of the seating in Economy on this aircraft – the seat back does not recline as such; rather the seat cushion moves forward bringing down the seat back with it so that there is no intrusion into the space of the passenger behind although as the seat is reclined your own leg-room is reduced. The cabin crew were efficient but with the odd exception surly whilst the catering was certainly above average. Bombay Sapphire Gin in Economy! Lunch comprised Prawn Cocktail choice of Chicken or Salmon Dessert and Cheese all very well presented and tasty. Despite a late departure from LHR arrival at Beirut was on time and I was out of the airport within 15 mins of disembarking the aircraft. A good flight and great value – if only the cabin crew would smile and the flight-deck crew would communicate a good flight would become great.

Brussels-Beirut-Brussels. Even though seats do not recline it was a very comfortable flight. The food was tasty with a variety of drinks (free of charge). Onboard entertainment was up to date some of the movies you could select (each their own screens 6 english and 2 arabic movies available). The staff speak French and English and although they are not the friendliest in the business they do the job well. The only downside for me was that they were out of english newspapers by the time they reached my row.

Beirut to Paris. The flight is scheduled to take off at 2 am from Beirut and once in the air I was hoping to get some sleep. Alas the seats do not recline. We had to endure a 4hr flight to Paris sitting upright. When I asked to stewardess why the seats are non-reclinable her answer was that the feature had led to arguments among passengers! I have heard many excuses and travelled a lot but this was new to me. To cram more seats passengers are made to suffer. There was also poor scrutiny to confirm seat belts were on. Passengers stood up before the plane came to a halt.

Beirut to Paris CDG in Business Class A330. Attentive and professional flight attendants. The seats are comfortable and the cabin is wide and feels airy . A welcome drink and after take off breakfast was served - excellent. The entertainment system is god and sufficient for this 4:30 flight. I was disappointed with the lack of an amenity kit.

BEY-CDG A330 in Business Class. Staff nice but had no idea of safety etc. As it was a flight leaving at 0:00 I slept for some hours. When waking up I asked for breakfast which was the biggest laugh I ever had. I thought I was on candid camera. Imagine in Business Class a dry bread roll with 2 little slices of cheese and a cup of yoghurt. All in all an average Business Class flight seats okay staff okay food terrible!
