stops non-stop flights to TLV
in order to prevent their crews from staying in Israel overnight, maybe SK
will do somthing similar, like stopping at LCA to change crews and add fuel for LCA-SDA
-LCA and LCA-CPH
>>>Why they are not allowed to refuel in Baghdad?
a) to minimise ground time in a country which is basically in the midst of a guerilla war
b) fuel is a scarce commodity in Iraq, so why not carry it in from the outside if you can?
c) lack of security equipment needed to be present when refuelling (fire trucks, ambulances etc.)
d) less-than-optimal infrastructure at SDA
That´s what I´d come up with on first thought.
