There has been an American ban on MEA since the hijacking of a plane at Beirut Airport in 1985. Will this soon be lifted? Even a quick look at the new constitution Egypt looks scary; a look at the aftermath in Lebanon ; and a proper sandwich.
Direct flights to resume between Lebanon and the US?
According to Al-Akhbar, Mohamad El-Hout (The CEO of MEA) is now working to convince the American authorities to remove the ban on MEA that was imposed in 1985 following the hijacking of a TWA plane at Beirut airport.
