EK has been dropping in quality for a while. The cost of their extremely aggressive and fast expansion is bad service, and it will only get worse. Between the ME3, I find EY to be the best, but the new Doha airport is the best airport hub.
I now fly Qatar Airways

Even the Airport for transit is much nicer to look at. I cannot stand the fake wood and gold on EK

Jazeera Airways considering long-haul flights

Low-cost hybrid carrier exploring its options in the event Kuwait Airways deal falls through

http://gulfnews.com/business/aviatio...ghts-1.1600191



Quote:
Dubai: Jazeera Airways may launch long-haul flights if it’s not able to buy a controlling stake in Kuwait Airways, chief financial officer Donald Hubbard told Gulf News on Tuesday.
Quote:
Jazeera Airways plans on operating a fleet of 11 A320s by 2018-2019. After the fleet reaches 15 aircraft, Hubbard said the airline will consider operating a split fleet with Boeing aircraft.

The low-cost carrier believes it can help revitalise Kuwait Airways, which has not turned a profit since the 1990 Iraqi invasion of Kuwait.
Quote:
Jazeera Airways plans to build its own terminal, including valet parking — an oddity for low-cost airlines in Europe but not the Gulf where a hybrid model has seen the introduction of business seats and included baggage allowance.

The terminal construction, built onto the four gates Jazeera Airways is operating from at Kuwait International, will likely start in the first quarter 2016 and take a year to complete at a cost of €20 million (Dh112.67 million), Hubbard said.

Watch Jetmen fly alongside Emirates A380 above Dubai.

Two men wearing jet packs push boundaries beyond the unthinkable.

‘No Kuwait Airways flights over Sinai’

http://news.kuwaittimes.net/website/...ts-over-sinai/



Quote:
KUWAIT: Kuwait Airways stressed that its flights had no routes over the Egyptian peninsula of Sinai, adding that it was the company’s general policy to avoid flying over dangerous territories so as to protect the lives of its passengers. The statement came two days after a Russian passenger jet crashed over the Egyptian peninsula, which prompted several airlines around the world to suspend air travel over the area.
