Sometimes I really think that some members here are working for the Libanese tourism board or for the marketing department of Middle East Airlines. It seems that they only joined to use the Airliners.net forums for cheap advertisements.

What I wouldnt give to visit Lebanon. The ancient architecture, the surfing along the Mediterranean, the beautiful, bustling city of Beirut, but most of all, the beautiful, Lebanese women. I hope to visit Lebanon some time in the near future.

sabena that is quite a low blow. we are just a bunch that are patriotic about our country and very, very fond of our airline and are interested in learning more about it and keeping up with its new developments.....all while staying within the rules of a.net.

Come on Sabena332, you can't really be serious with what you've said. There should be better ways to promote tourism than joining Airliners.

Did you know that one of Sabena's A330-200s which was with VG/Delsey Airlines was wet leased by MEA during September 2002?

Have a great day.
All the best.

Unfortunately I have to agree with Sabena332 on this one, if not the tourist board, but it often seems like many members are working for the advertisement department of MEA.

i highly doubt sabena332 actually thinks that we are consultants doing work for the Middle East Airlines department of marketing and advertising.

If he does, that is ridiculous.

All of you say what you may, but there is nothing stopping us from chatting about MEA here on A.net, not even the rules of the forums.

"...not even the rules of the forums" now that was one wired comment, I suppose you are here because it is an airline forum, but if the rules were changed you would start your own chatgroup at yahoo.com. Btw, why not do it now, so you can discuss how MEAs vice presidents ex wife likes her salad vinegar without anyone complaining.

Correct Leviticus, look at the thread starter, he joined today, somehow strage that his first post was like: "Hey guys, visit Lebanon, you can fly nonstop from XXX to BEY, for more information click on the following links...".

If there is one thing that annoys me more than anything in this forum, it is the whiners and complainers.

No matter what topic, any kind of whining and complaining annoys me. This one is a clear example and it is very sad that people do not have the respect and tolerance.

It's simple, you don't have to read the posts. Why are you guys wasting your time in this thread if it doesn't interest you? Why do you wish to stir up nothing but trouble by whining and complaining that there are too many Lebanon and MEA posts?

I have been on this forum for nearly 4 years and over the years, I have seen it degrade. I am more and more tempted to delete my account and relieve myself.

This is such a great forum and I love reading about aviation throughout the world, but it's changed a lot.

I am more and more becoming tempted to leave Airliners.net......

It is sad how critical people have become on this forum. I miss the old days....

No BA, I could not possibly imagine you leaving the a.net forums. Just think, the tourism to Lebanon would drop by at least 20%.  Insane

Some people takes the internet way too seriously! If you're thinking of leaving just because of one comment made by one member maybe you should think of growing some thicker skin.

I am here primarily to discuss and therefore learn and help others learn about a topic that all members on the forum have at least some degree of interest in: aviation.

Currently, I'm not much help on the "help others learn" front but I have learned a lot since joining and if it wasn't for A.net my knowledge of commercial aviation and planes in general would be the same that it was last year.

My most feverish interest in aviation is MEA and the Lebanese aviation scene. Those of us who grew up in Lebanon or are from Lebanon have a special bond with MEA that might be difficult for others to understand. MEA is more than just an airline...it is a symbol of a country whose people refuse to give up, just like the airline itself. During the war, Cedarjets kept on flying into and out of Beirut long after others had left due to safety considerations. MEA provided safe air transportation at a time when many needed it. I could go on forever about MEA, but those of you who get irritated by another MEA or BEY or Lebanon thread posted...please try to understand.

That said, it is true that there are lots of these threads but at least they are related to aviation.

Half of these people who complain about Lebanon or MEA probably havent even been to the country, or flown on MEA, so their arguement isn't even valid. You guys (BA and AirXLiban) are just patriotic and are proud of your national airline, just like these other guys are probably of their home country and national airline, just as I would be interested in aviation developments in Northern California.

As I said before and I'll say it again, I think we see the case of the green-eyed monster in a few members. Like you said Copaair737, most if not all those who are complaining have never visited an Arab country, let alone Lebanon and the same thing applies to flying with an Arab airlines.

Horus- I agree with you totally. How can someone have an opinion on something that they haven't even done or experienced? The media scares people into thinking that arab people and countries are dangerous, when in all reality, they are not, they are as if not safer than parts of the US.

Gosh! I really didn't expect this thread to turn out like this. I was expecting to see replies on how much they wish to visit Lebanon or how enjoyable their last visit was. Instead we have replies after replies solely on there are just too much Lebanese exposure on A.net. So what? In case you haven't realised, we are now in NON-AVIATION forum, so anything goes I'm afraid...

OK let me start again... Yes someday I wish to visit Lebanon because of the great things I've heard about this country. I also wish to see for myself how a country with such a diverse religious background could live peacefully side-by-side for centuries.

Anymore non-Lebanese member has nice things to say about Lebanon?

Radarbeam- Have you ever been to Liberty City? Compton? I would rather be in the Middle East, particularly Lebanon, than those places. Did you know that there is a higher murder rate in those places than in parts of the Middle East. I would rather have my car break down in Beirut than in Liberty City, thats for sure.

I think it's great that some people are proud of their countries and take the time to tell us something about where they are from. Even when the thread starter doesn't have anything new, other people's responses are often interesting. Of course, such threads are not for everyone, but that's why your browser has a "Back" button. There are plenty of threads that are boring to me, but being boring doesn't violate any rules.

26 Airmale : Quite obviously the marketing is working, I'm beginng to picture MEA as Malaysia Airlines and Lebanon as Malaysia of the region.
