I know people who say that Ahli united bank program is rewarding. they only give miles on Qatar Airways, Kuwait Airways and Gulf airlines though.

Foreign exchange rates is the biggest determinant (not transaction fees).  FX rates are bank dependent, and virtually all of them are absolutely horrible.

My friends swear by Ahli Bank since they get a ton of miles on Emirates.
I have NBK and yeah their rewards system is the worst.

I am using that as a deciding factor:
AMEX/1.6ppkd
ABK/ 7,5,2,1ppkd
AUB/3ppkd
