Lol.......i think you over-analyze and think too hard. Maybe the airline and perhaps most people in the region are not extremists... I bet 99% of you people havent even travelled to the Persian Gulf. If you did, you would know that

Gulf Air, Emirates, Qatar Airways, Royal Saudi Airways, Ittehad, Kuwait Airlines ALL have the same approach --- they all serve alcohol (except during the Holy Month of Ramadan which is perfectly justified), the hostesses are all foreigners (britishers, fillipinos, irish, malaysian, syrian, egyptian etc. etc.) and there is no sign of ""religious extremism""

if you want the latter, please vote for John Mccain

I think that ... consider travels to the Middle East/Central/South Asian region. This would make the most sense I think. ...
