Arrow MEA: Probably Not For A While

With all the problems in Lebanon, I would not count on MEA joining ST in the near future. It is a sad situation. Unfortunately, if the instability and uncertainty in Lebanon does not somehow resolve itself, maybe ST should look elsewhere for a Middle East partner. Even some stability would be better than nothing.

OW has Royal Jordanian Airlines, *A has has no one, and ST wants MEA. Maybe ST would be better off find another carrier.
