Middle East Airlines (MEA) is something of a misnomer – the airline was actually established in Lebanon, but their routes do indeed span the entire region and beyond, covering major cities in Europe and Africa including Copenhagen, London, Lagos and Abidjan. You will have the luxury of flying to all of these destinations while enjoying a range of programmes and games on individual entertainment consoles. What's more, authentic Lebanese cuisines are served on most flights – passengers flying out of Beirut can enjoy Knafe, the famously indulgent dessert made with creamy cheese and thick syrup. Other Lebanese cheese and meat items are also served on longer flights, while passengers can enjoy cold cuts on shorter ones. MEA's frequent flyer program is dubbed Cedar Miles. Members can earnmiles, redeem free flights and – having reached the Silver Cedar tier at 20,000 miles – enjoy exclusiveprivileges on MEA and other Skyteam airlines, which include priority check in and baggage handling.
