Whichever one isn't owned by an Islamic rule totalitarian regime. Hmmmm, that leaves no ME airline.

as a yank, have you ever flown in an ME Airline?

And this is relevant exactly why? 

When I fly, I don't fly "as a yank" - I fly as a passenger, I'm not a flipping Canadian or such who needs to stitch a maple leaf on all my possessions.  No offense to the Canadians, but that's a weird obsession of theirs.

Presumably you're from an Anglo country - which means that fellow countrymen of yours have fought and died in the ME in the recent past, perhaps even currently.  This is why I prefer not to fund state sponsored terrorism, even if indirectly, money is a fungible asset.

so you will fly with a yankee airline, how safe is that.? the biggest sponsor of terrorism in the world. As for Canadians with there Maple leaf, who can blame them? I put a North Korea flag on my luggage cos its safer than stars and stripes


To be precise, I fly with a Southern airline, not a Yank airline. The distinction might be lost on you.

The US a sponsor of terrorism? Interestingly, you didn't grow up speaking German or Japanese.... I wonder why?

I think we might give the Russians a little bit of credit in that respect also.

Indeed, although they were never that close to any Anglo country AFAIK, still a serious threat.

Too bad it is not lost on you. Maybe it will take another 100 years or so.

 

The ME airlines should be good with their government subsidies.

I don't fly the ME airlines. I was trying to point out they have an unfair advantage from government subsidies.

the one with the best price

 

they all have new equipment basically and if you fly business then they all have great services

 

i've flown emirates and gulf air a lot and they both have treated me well the majority of the time

 

emirates is slipping though as to how nice it was and the customer service you could expect 5 years ago.

 

the one thing i would say is that connections in the middle east that are not through dubai have been sketchy for me in the past as far as being delayed.

 

i'd consider that before you connect through kuwait or jordan etc...

I used to swear by Emirates especially having all of the 4 legs of the journey (from MAN-DXB-BKK and back) on their A380's, their IFE system is the best imho , but Qatar now have A380's too from DOH-BKK

 

Having flown with all three of these airlines myself I totally agree with this Swedish guy's views of them on his Vlog's, and his eventual Winner and his reasons why they won   B)
