Flydubai cancelled its 10.30am flight to Beirut on Saturday for “operational reasons,” leaving passengers stranded at the airport for hours, reports The National. Many passengers were asked to wait for the next flight, which was also delayed by five hours.
“All passengers on the flight have been offered a new reservation,” a flydubai official said.
“Some of them have been transferred to the evening flight, and other passengers have been given another date to travel on.”
The evening flight was scheduled to leave at 7.40pm on Saturday night, but was delayed until 12.40am Sunday morning.
“This flight was also delayed for operational reasons,” the official said.
