Very interesting, I Didn't know that. I wonder if the same would hold true if someone brings their wife along wearing a skirt and a head covering... That would be a lot more obvious.

A skirt and a head covering that in most cases couldn't even be identified as one? How is that obvious? Do only Jewish women wear skirts?

No it wouldn't. They have no idea that skirt or head covering has anything to do with jews. If you walked around with horns on the other hand...

While they aren't too particular about Jews, most citizens of middle eastern Muslim countries cant differentiate a  american Jew from an Asian christian
And by them a Jew is dark with an accent, like an Israeli! an American Jew that looks like any random person has no issues.
Like the guy in the DXB lounge giving me a message, who wanted to know if I was a Christian or Muslim.  ;D

Nice TR. Brings back memories of DXB F lounge and flying EY F. The A380 is a must it puts the 777 to shame.
It's in the plans :)

One of my cabbies also asked me if I was Christian!

They are religious Muslims so they dont look at women anyway.

When you don't have to pay for chairs or tables you have a bigger budget for decor
But the carpets cost as much as the tables and chairs.

Great TR.

To this day, I'd personally pick the elegance, beauty, and comfort of the EY suite over the EK suite.

Now, it's not fair to compare the EY 777 vs. EK A380, and I, too, would take the EK A380 if those were 2 choices, due to the amenities on an A380.

But, comparing the EY A380 to EK A380, and I'd pick the EY version every time.
