Flew AUH-SIN recently on EY. Not a bad experience especially because the 330 was less than 50% occupied and I had a complete center row of 4 seats in which to stretch out. But more than that, the food, the choice of actual liquors and the entertainment options were all above average. I didn't have to deal with irop which I feel would have been a more negative experience but the actual hard product was certainly good. This is why we need OPEN SKIES in the US...the cabal will find the competitive quality too strong.
