Quoting Bombayhog (Reply 2): do I take it correctly that the BEY-LHR flight will be operating via AMM for the time being?
yes, it apparently not only is due to the available runway-length is only about 2000 meters but also as the Israelis insist that all ex-BEY flights are to go via AMM, until some "mechanisms" are agreed upon via the U.N. Might be a job for the SGS Societe Generale de Surveillance in GVA to take over !

That point really hasnt been highlighted by the media, when covering the increasing operations at BEY. Indeed, you guys have just clarified it for me now and thank you. It is ridiculous. Particularly when one is reminded of the fact that AMM unfortunately was the victim of a terrorist attack within the past 9 months, whereas prior to July, Lebanon had not been the victim of terrorism.....afterwards, is another story.
At work this morning, we were showing a BA ex BEY and AMM thats due in this afternoon. Let me check it again.

anyonw know what is going on with BA to beirut
a familly member flew CDG-LHR-BEY on BA yesterday
LHR-BEY was via AMM
they got off at AMM and they told them that they will not fly to BEY and that they will have to fly to DAM. they also removed ALL the bags from the a/c to screen them then reload them back on the plane
Friend trying to book a flight on BA to BEY and the travel agent saying that i will not advise you to fly with BA as 2 of his familly members flew on BA to BEY and they ended the service in AMM.
Brother trying to book ACC-LHR-BEY BA advised him that the flight will go via AMM and may NOT actually land in BEY and that the service will be either to AMM or DAM. he instead took AZ he avoided ME as the routine was ACC-ABJ-LOS-AMM-BEY
