Wow, that's great! Especially when American carriers can't seem to give away tickets.

Maybe all the American business's are putting their staff on Middle eastern carriers with the thinkin that they wouldn't dare hijack their own planes ?

Emirates buying planes like no tomorrow and Quatar with 60% growth... may not be so far fetched
