Didn't he also spend a night as a guest of a Turkish General at some point in the movie. He knows what it's like to be an EK crew member

Blocking the QR website in the UAE but still importing a lot of gas from Qatar. That's pragmatism

Qatar stopped issuing visa stickers in passports around 2 years ago. They only issue IDs to expats in the country. So the question is if you hold a passport that is elegible for arrival visa in the UAE how would they know that you live in Qatar?

Whilst I agree with you, is this actually any different to US/Western foreign policy for the last 40 years? That's not a dig at the US by the way, just an observation.

Am I reading this correctly? So BA operate a daily service to and from DOH, therefore they will not be allowed to fly into the UAE?

The UAE banned all international flights serving Doha from flying through its airspace amid an escalating diplomatic crisis between Qatar and its Arabian Gulf neighbours.

Or is it about over flying Qatar to get to the UAE?

It's flight to Qatar that currently overfly the UAE. For example Oman Air still uses UAE Airspace on flights from Muscat to Doha. Thus flight would no longer be able to operate through UAE airspace.

In that case a badly worded piece of journalism.

They did stop issuing residency permit stickers in passports, that is true.

But like the majority of expats,my passport doesn't expire for another 6 years. So I still have the sticker in my passport. They go through my passport everytime I go to DXB for fun.
That's how they will know.

Yes, but what about the Saudis...?

The hijackers in the September 11 attacks were 19 men affiliated with al-Qaeda. Fifteen of the 19 were citizens of Saudi Arabia, and the others were from the United Arab Emirates (2), Egypt, and Lebanon.[1] The hijackers were organized into four teams, each led by a pilot-trained hijacker with three or four "muscle hijackers," who were trained to help subdue the pilots, passengers, and crew.

BeIN Sports "generic issue" according to 101

Called Etisalat and they said they will refund our BeIN Sports subscription this month.

If anyone knows where we can watch the Canadian Grand Prix in Dubai, let us know.

Shouldn't you be off somewhere, beating the crap out of one of your passengers ?

When is IATA going to grow a pair and pull EK membership ?
They are the only one actually breaking an international air law.

On a plus note, the Turkish milk is much tastier than that crap from Saudi !
