The new business class is called Cedar Class and replaced it's previous business class product named Front Class which was on MEA's older fleet.
MEA first introduced it's new Cedar Class and Economy Class services when it recieved it's first of 6 brand new owned A321s back in February.
MEA now has recieved 5 of it's 6 A321s and all 3 A330s.
The last A321 just came out of the plant and is doing flight testing and last minute touch ups and should be delivered sometime next month.

When MEA recieves it's final A321, MEA will have the youngest fleet in the world with an average fleet age of about 5 months.
Anyways, here is MEA's advertisement for it's new Cedar Class service:
Here are some close up shots of the new Cedar Class seats on the A321 and the huge 10.4 inch stowable personal TV screens:
Go here for an even better picture:
Here are some close up shots of the seats and the cabain also on the A321:
The A330's have the exact same seats and set up except the frame around the TV screens is white instead of dark blue as you can see in the Cedar Class advertisement that I posted above.
Here is the interior of the new Economy Class:
As you can see, economy passengers also get personal TV screens, except these are 6.8 inches and are fixed to the back of the seat infront of you. Also, in Cedar Class, passengers can check out video games. Video games are not available in economy but economy passengers enjoy the same number of TV programming as the Cedar Class passengers. Again, on the A330 the economy seats are exactly the same except the frame around the TV screens is white.
MEA's A321s are configured with 36 Cedar Class seats and 118 Economy Class seats for a total of only 149 seats, that's the typical A320. For comparison, JetBlue's A320s are equiped with 169 economy class seats. MEA's A321s have a very comfortable configuration with tons of leg room in both Cedar class and economy.
MEA's A330s are configured with 42 Cedar Class seats and 208 Economy seats.
Below you will see MEA's current main advertisement showing up in magazines, TV commercials, and large advertisement bulletin all over Lebanon.
