Great to know it's 100% confirmed,but the departure time from CPH doesn't seem convenient,but I think it should work out quite well due to the non stop operation,though snowflake will be operating flights to BEY.
Anyone know the schedule of the snowflake flights?

I am in Florida right now, the advertisment is on the sales office in Copenhagen. My friend called me just to tell me that. I would love to have a snapshot of it myself. I will try to exercise some people in Denmark to get a picture for me. Tomorrow if the office is open my friend will go find out how much the ticket prices are.

Oh okay MEA321,
Well have a good time in Florida....I wish I was there. I'm freezing here in Colorado.
Could you ask your friend to confirm whether the flight is seasonal or not? According to Amadeus, the flight starts June 1st and continues until September 4. But it would be nice if someone else could reconfirm it.

The flight is scheduled nicely so that MEA can maximize the A330s flight time in the day. As we all know, planes sitting on the tarmac in Beirut don't make any money. MEA's A330 flights to CDG and LHR both leave around 8am. That would mean that if MEA is able to get the A330 coming from CPH (which arrives at 6am) turned around in good time, it will be on the ground for less than two hours in Beirut before going on its next trip. That is putting into account no delays or incidents that might cause conflicts in the schedules.
BA, I wish I could have a good time here in Florida, but I am a student here and the beach next to my apartment is like a tease...

The current price for a roundtrip with MEA is DKK 2500. Thats about $400 U.S. dollars. Actually this is quite expensive compared to tickets with connections. Snowflakes fare is much less expensive (DKK 1795) $300, even though they are sold out and they did not add additional frequency. AZ, AF, BA, TK, and many others are also offering lower fares.
However this doesnt beat a four hour straight flight to beirut, and imagine waking up before arriving and having some of their famous kinafeh!

Unfortunately, the MEA flights to CPH will be bad news for spotters. The flight sneaks in and out of Kastrup in the middle of the night. It arrives around midnight and departs at 1am. In the summer we have very short nights and very long days in Denmark. The sun sets around 11:30pm and the time peaks around June 21. So it might be possible to get some pics in MEA is arriving early, around 11:45pm.
