"The later revelation that women on a total of 10 flights in Doha earlier this month were subjected to invasive vaginal exams has spiraled into a public relations catastrophe for Qatar, a tiny energy-rich state on the Arabian Peninsula that will host the 2022 FIFA World Cup."

True that's Qatar... but it helps to bear in mind that EK's base is also a Gulf State where human rights are not compatible with what you might believe especially as a woman.
