Hello everyone this is cedarjet203 today, inbound for London from Beirut. I am a private pilot so everything will be explained in Details.
The flight date was scheduled on the 18th of September 2014. As I am studying in London Aviation Management, this aircraft was my ride to London.
Let's get back to the 18th of September: It's 2:30PM and here I am in Beirut Airport. In line with the airport regulations, I avoided taking pictures in the terminal, but did take some snaps in the CedarLounge. I took my boarding pass and choose my seat 6F which is the last seat in CedarClass in MEA's A320-200. ( 24 seats in Cedar Class and 102 in Economy). Aircraft expected today was OD-MRN which was correct, it arrived 1hour before my flight all the way from Brussels, we had a 15 mins delay departing. GATE 9 Here I am now in the Cedar Lounge:
And from there, enjoying the view:
After that it's time to head to the aircraft:
And as soon as I boarded, after the usual welcome : Welcome Captain Mattar
This was the welcome champagne:
Very nice touch from MEA:
As soon as we took off the menu was distributed and the drinks were distributed ( before takeoff the cabin crew asked each passenger what drink they wanted to have) Note the forks,spoons and knives are plastic, in line with the UK airports law:
Very delicious Scottish salmon with limes, a freshening salad, lebanese sweets and finally the hot dish is given (Chicken Frieke a lebanese dish ) :
As soon as the platter was taken away, the cheese and desert were distributed ( Also a la carte):
Last picture in-flight:
After Landing, I headed to Renaissance Hotel, which was facing heathrow airport. This is the room and note the Al-Rifai nuts. ( THE BEST)

Beirut - BEY
London - LHR
The Flight was AMAZING as usual by MEA. As a pilot, the flight was really well and professionally handled by the crew on board. Food was succulent. Took off 25 minutes late and arrived 1 minute late (Thanks to the winds) I recommend MEA all time!
