The best airline to use is Malaysian, they do biz class flights for less than dh3,000 usually and economy (used to be) around dh1400

Emirates has the best flight times (and at the moment is just Dh1800 - as I've just booked two return flights), MEA is just appalling.

Air Arabia is cheap and cheerful (but you have to go to Sharjah). Jazeera only has one direct flight.

Do you need a visa to enter Lebanon these days? I flew to Amman, Jordan a few years back and really enjoyed myself.

loads of lebanese lasses here big man, they told me where to go,

so: fly from sharjah to lebanon, car picks us up and drives us about 1 hour and a bit to the slopes, check into nice little 4 star hotel for 3 days, we get board hire, insurance and lift passes all in the price, then car takes us to this cool little 5 star boutique (I hate that word) hotel in beirut,

2 days partying and seeing the sights there then fly back home, works out just over £800 each,

seems canny don;t you think?

Spugsy,
you can get a Lebanese visa when you arrive at Beruit airport, I recall it costing US$17 cash at a small counter just before you get to passport control. You can only get a free visa for a 2 day or less visit.
