    Ah, memories of flying in the region during 1975 between BEY and what is now IKA, then in 1979 from DXB-IKA, not to mention a few other experiences. War zones and revolutions make unusual experiences commonplace. Frankly, boring is better IMHO.

    "Ladies and Gentlemen, this is your Captain. Due to the unstable situation in Beirut, we are re-routing to Syria"

    That's what I was thinking when I read this paragraph:

    "The plane that was headed for Beirut on Wednesday night was diverted due to civil unrest in the Lebanese capital and sought to go to Amman, but it was forced to land in Syria due to lack of fuel."
