MEA Flying To GRU (Sao Paulo)

Yesterday I was looking at some pictures of aircraft at GRU airport, Sao Paulo, Brasil. One of them was of a MEA B747-200 and the caption underneath suggested that the aircraft was on a regular service from Beirut to Sao Paulo.

Could anyone give any information on this service? Perhaps why it was operated (I don't know, I am guessing that Brasil had economic ties with Lebanon).

Thanks for any help

MEA does not fly to GRU anymore. They used to fly to GRU because there is a large Lebanese/Arab population in Sao Paulo.

Where did the flight stop or was it non-stop from BEY?

About 8 million Lebanese people live in Brazil. MEA used to fly there, as well as SYD and some other places, but they've stopped the flights.
