The best airlines in the Middle East have been unveiled in TripAdvisor’s annual Traveler’s Choice Awards. Emirates topped the list and Lebanon’s national carrier airline, Middle East Airlines (MEA), ranked second.
Here’s what some travelers have to say about their experience with MEA!
“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.” (31sherriw)
“The crew and service standard represent the class and elegance Lebanon is well known for! I highly recommend it. I like the crew uniform, the information provided, the airlines took off and landed on time, unlike other airlines that were always late.” (Iman A)

Reviewers rated airlines for several characteristics including legroom, customer service, cleanliness, food and beverage, seat comfort, value for money, check-in and boarding, and in-flight entertainment.
MEA flies to 32 destinations and has codeshare agreements with 14 airlines. It offers direct flights to countries in the Middle East, Europe, the Gulf, and Africa.
The airline has two female pilots: Rola Hoteit and Erica Chbeir. The latter joined the crew this year!
