Many of you have said that we won't here any more big news from MEA untill it is privateized.
Well, lets see what routes MEA should open and could make profit off of.
I know a lot of you like to live in the realistic world but come on, playalong

And does anyone have news on MEA aircraft interior. any changes? Any thing? photos? Anything?!?!?!?!?!

I wish to see ME in KUL since many middle eastern airlines are present here. We have EK, GF, QR, SV, RJ, IY, MS (c/s), IR & TK - but not ME & KU.

Yeah MEA does have a lack of long range flights.
I guess the only one is GRU which will be coming up very soon.
They need to open Hong Kong or KUL or Bangkock or Singapore so they could get the pax going on to Austraila

If some of the always-rumoured routes like GRU, YUL and Australia became true, that would already be a big step forward! This is wishful thinking already, but to see them coming back in strenghts to all the major global hubs in the next 18-24 months is an illusion (unfortunately...)

I would like to see them back in OZ, but I can't see it happening. With such Middle Eastern airlines like, Emirates soon to be double daily into Sydney and Melbourne soon and Gulf Air flying daily into Sydney and rumours of Qatar's entry into the Australian market, there doesn't seem any room for MEA to come back.

Zizou - MEA flew to Australia years ago.
Unfortunately the Aussie-Market is not a good deal for Airlines from Europe and maybe that's the reason they won't fly there in the future. Would love that too.

QR into australian market? Sounds GREAT!

Maybe, in 2005 the could re-start the Aussie market with a 345 or a 330 via KUL. Has CX or ME done anything about re-starting the code-share?

are you people smoking? BEY-DXB-KHI? KUL? these flights will get killed unless MEA develops a hub at BEY. Even with the hub BEY-DXB-KHI will get killed. KHI is a lousy market for most carriers - the yields are GHASTLY.

interiors are great, but need a LOT more pitch in business class.

This is slightly off topic, does anyone have the sitting plans of MEA's older planes? I'm mostly interested in the 707s, 310s and the 300s but anything older than thses will be a real treat.

Thanks.

Hi BEYw/MEA,

I know about Wassim's great site but does he have the seating plans for the older MEA aircraft? It was only a short time ago that the A300/310 were on the official MEA website.
Hope someone has it.

Thanks.

OD720,

I do not know about the MEA 707s, I never had a chance to ride on it.

The Airbus 300 and 310 for MEA both had a similar layout. It was a 2 - 4 - 2 abreast in economy. In front class it was 2 - 2 - 2 I believe. I dont remember for sure.

The A310 and A300 did have 2-4-2 in eco and 2-2-2 in Front (there was no cedar class) just like MEA321 said.

Thanks for that. I guess I meant the configuration, the number of seats in C and Y.

My fault, I wasn't too clear. Sorry that this is going off topic.

Best regards.

OD720, in my experiences with MEA 707's I'd say that the interiors were really not standardized.

However I predict that the -320C's had approximately.........................(thinking)...........16 seats in C class. i doubt there were more than 4 rows, the seats were spaced out and there was TONS and TONS of legroom. Loud aircraft but bloody comfortable.

I guess my speculation doesn't really help you, OD720! you know, we could always take a fieldtrip to BEY and have a look at that 707 sitting on the side of the sea runway...

You can count me in. The question is, how can we get to the 707s? I think it is best if someone from the company could provide us with the details. I'm sure they have it somewhere.
