Manas Air Flight 344 Beirut-Athens 20/08

Sat Aug 20, 2005 7:26 am

Dear friends over in Lebanon or abroad,

I'm using the Flight Tracker widget on my Apple Mac OS X Tiger Dashboard to - well - track the flights bringing my little family home to Belgium this night.

I entered the origin as Beirut and the destination as Athens and unfortunately the OA flight is not listed. Strange since the OA flight between Athens and Brussels comes up when querying that city pair.

Nevertheless, it is listing two flights from BEY to ATH on 20/08. One being ME251 (we all know what this one is), and another being Manas Air 344. I'm wondering if any of you knows what this Manas Air is. Is it Lebanese, Greek or tier? And what equipment do they have? They're not found in airfleets.net.

Any info appreciated. Pictures would be awesome (it is scheduled to leave at 12:45 local time).

PS: Meanwhile I'll track the OA flights thru Beirut airport, Athens airport and Brussels airport websites.

Christian,

What about Manos Air (owned by Airtours UK) ?

Manos Air

Could be a typo in Apple's widget or somewhere before that in the chain, indeed.

Could it be "Mena" (from Mena Jet ) ?

Manas is a city in Kyrgyzstan, but I'm not sure that it is an airline.  Smile

BrightCedars,

Never knew that flight trackers are available outside the US. Can you please give me the web address?

Thanks...

OD-BWH: It's not a website, it's a widget on the Apple Mac OS X Tiger Dashboard feature. You can find out more at http://www.apple.com/macosx/features/dashboard.
