Middle East Airlines Reviews
Middle East Airlines was originated in 1945 by Saeb Salam and Fawzi EL-Hoss, with the help of (British Overseas Airways Corporation) BOAC. The fleet initially consisted of three de Havilland DH.89A Dragon Rapides followed by two more Douglas DC-3s. In 1955, PanAm bought the 49% shares of BOAC in the airline. The continuous growth of the airline successfully acquired Lebanese International Airways and this routed to making the fleet of Middle East Airlines modernized also merging with Air Liban in 1965.
The national airline of Lebanon became the 17th member of SkyTeam alliance in 2012. Now, Middle East Airlines is headquartered at Beirut Rafic Hariri International Airport with a growing fleet size of 19; (18) Airbus and (1) Embraer. MEA serves flights to 37 destinations internationally including Europe and Africa while carrying the slogan “From Lebanon to the World”.
The Lebanese Kind of Services
The flag carrier has two cabin classes: Economy and Business. Each accommodation provides carefully selected meals ranging from Lebanese and European cuisines. They also offer special and dietary meals, but these are pre-ordered or under reservation process. On board, the cabin has steam ovens, bread warmer, espresso and air chiller which can be used by the request of aid from a flight attendant.
Travellers can watch the most recent movies with their inflight entertainment. Special assistance is also offered inflight for unaccompanied minors, pregnant women, physically challenged, pets and other services. But please follow their certain rules, regulations and procedures prior to booking. Like other major airlines, MEA has a frequent flyer program known as Cedar Miles.

At first, I thought MEA was too brave to name their airline as Middle East Airlines, like they are the best airline in the Middle East. But after writing this review, we realized that MEA might not be the top airline in the world or in the Middle East, they are still good at providing flight services. Customers are their proof of their efficiency and that’s a good sign. Kudos to Lebanon, Kudos to Middle East Airlines.
