@ capetonian: The case of Cyril Karabus speaks volumes:
This is racism towards whites in the affluent arab countries, not vice versa. after treating a girl with leukemia for 10 years…and then being charged with manslaughter upon her death….there would be an outcry if it happened to an arab doc in the West.
EK should have informed the man about the pending arrest. The doc didnt even know about any trial or sentencing against him.
Thy arrested the fragile 92 yo man, but could not even find or locate the files of the trial or indictment…still held him captive.
Yes, and about the ME airlines: yes, the standards are going down. While the hardware has been constantly upgraded, the service lacks. The enthusiasm of the early years is gone, due to growth problems and mainly due to staff maltreatment.
