I doubt it too. MEA has very close contacts with Airbus, and also the US Government is reluctant to have "their latest technology" airliners in states they don't have close ties with.
They will get some 2nd hand A300-600Rs, with about 300 seats it is a major expansion needed on routes like LHR-BEY or CDG-BEY. Chris, don't forget Damascus is Syria's capital, Beirut is of Lebanon, MEA's homebase.
Maybe they will lease in some 747s in the future for short periods, like holiday and hadj, but it is more likely that will be 747-200Bs or 300s of airlines like Atlanta Icelandic.
nobody has ever died from hard work, but why take the risk?
