    Interesting article. The unfortunate fact is that many who inhabit this and other boards ( if you want... to see it at its worst just pay a visit to the BA FT board:rolleyes: ) inhabited by the world of frequent-flyers who will have you believe they are uber elites and fly only First class consuming 6-8 bottles of champagne on a single flight and they really don't much care.
    They will continually sing the praises of the beautiful young girls on Middle Eastern and Far East carriers and bemoan the fact that there are only " grandmas" on US carriers and complain that they should all be "Singapore (Air) girls.:)

    Rationalization is wonderful thing.. everyone's happy if they get theirs (and to hell with the cost to the others who provide it)

    For the reasons described in the article, and several others, it'll be a cold day in hell before I fly one of the Gulf carriers, or visit those countries.

    These days lot of my friends are flying QR, EK, EY or TK to fly to India. Their tickets are quite cheap compared to EU or US airlines.

    Seems to me that these fares come at a high price for some who work for QR as mentioned in the article.

    wow! just wow! in this modern age, i cannot understand how this is allowed to happen. i know horrible things, far worse happen daily to people around the world, but this just sounds like they've never emerged from whatever era people deem to the most restrictive for human rights. i will definitely be making a point to never fly this airline.

    Why doesn't this surprise me ? Well, that, that part of the world has no regards for human dignity, and law is what the rulers say it is on that particular day !
