I will not fly with this airline ever again and we felt cheated with our business class experience. The plane we were given for a 7 hour flight was old with many issues. The seats in business class did not recline all the way. Some of the TV's were not working despite bring reset many times by the cabin crew....

The whole flight was so uncomfortable and full of loud noisy and unbearably irritating co passengers and the crew staff did not do anything to...

I booked the flight with only 3 hour wait time considering I was travelling with a child. Having checked the flight three hours before flying the connecting flight was changed...

I didn't know what to expect, but was pleasantly surprised. First and Business class enter the aircraft from a separate Jetway so it never felt crowed while boarding. Ample room for bags in business class, I actually had an overhead compartment to myself. I was offered dates, Arabic coffee and assorted juices before takeoff. Meal was way more than I...
