is not using the 744 to BEY
. The guy who took the picture got his geography mixed up. This flight is for TLV
. The TLV
flight is the only flight where you can tell where it goes to from the distance, as indeed it is always handled at the C gates and which has armored vehicles standing around it.
I suspect that this is a symptom of a typical German who is not very familiar with BEY
and with Lebanon and thus thinks it's one of those terror-ridden Islamist crime states in the Middle East. Try to tell a German that Beirut - which in his head is somewhere between Afghanistan and Iraq - is closer than the Canary Islands- which in his heas is somewhere right behind Mallorca - and he won't believe you. Typical symptom of "psychological distance" vs. geographical distance.
Pity though that LH
isn't using any intercont planes to BEY
, I dread those night flights on the A32S...
