A while ago I heard that Qantas was looking at starting non-stop service to Beirut (BEY) because of the extremely large Lebanese community in Sydney.
Then about half a year ago I think, I heard that LanChile was making plans to fly Madrid - Beirut - Denpasar - Sydney 3 times a week on A340s. I heard that British Airways, Iberia, and Qantas would code-share on this route.
Now why on earth would LanChile fly from Madrid beats me.
Anyone know the status of this proposed route? Or if Qantas is still considering flying the route with it's own metal?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
