The boarding was nice, the staff were helpful and hard-working, the seats were OK. However, I was surprised that the entertainment system was not working all along the flight although it was available. Also, this is the first MEA plane that I have seen without any business-class seats.. Finally, the food was very basic (2 small sandwiches, cheese & chicken, one cake, and orange juice).
