By all indications, no, including their latest timetable. Also not Snowflake. It may have been a charter or a special flight that you saw.

I don't think so, since they're using the 737NG's (and has a yellow tail). Could, of course, be a equipment swap.
Perhaps they're prepping for the Basra run? Though, it would then make a lot more sense if they were using the 767.

Probably a UN charter .. SAS operates those now and then ...

I think a UN charter or similar makes most sense.
Snowflake will indeed serve Beirut from Stockholm/Arlanda, but from the beginning of the winter timetable, October 26th, operated only Mondays BTW.
Just like birdwatching - without having to be so damned quiet!

SAS operates an Airbus 321 every Saturday from Stockholm - Beirut
on charter basis on behalf of a Swedish Touroperator, effective during
From Oct or Nov SAS low cost operator Snowflake will fly
Stockholm - Beirut every Monday or Friday, I am not sure, using a
Boeing 737-800 with 150 seats.
www.flysnowflake.com (The new destinations (Beirut/Lyon/Belgrade) is
not yet updated on the website map I saw some days ago).
The Snowflake fleet is 4 Boeing 738, two in special snowflake livery and two with the normal SAS livery. For registrations, www.sasflightops.com

Thanks for the reply. It makes sense that it was a charter.
And yes, it was definately not Snowflake that I saw. Snowflake will indeed be starting Stockholm - Beirut service on October 26 and will operate on Mondays on a 737-800.
