For those of you interested in vacationing in the lovely Lebanese Riviera, I wouldn’t advise it at this point in time. But just in case you don’t follow my advice, according to Expedia.ca an Edmonton-Calgary-Frankfurt-Beruit flight, care of Air Canada and Luftansa, will cost you upwards of $3,700 Canadian Dollars (one-way).
I find it surprising that Expedia is acutally still selling flights to Beirut seeing as how the Beirut Rafic Hariri International Airport was bombed by Israeli Missiles the other day.
What an awful situation. Let’s hope for peace soon.
