Jet Set Christmas Holidays in Beirut, 1960s - Part 2

Somewhat delayed due to adverse weather conditions in Great Britain, we're finally on our way. Our destination - Beirut, playground of the Middle East.

On board today is Mr David Niven, noted film actor presently serving as your BOAC De Luxe class steward, due to a lack of work. Please keep your hands off him, Miss Woo.

Drinks and other refreshments will be served shortly, followed by the Lunch service:

What are you having?

You are invited to enjoy the following film, from Mr Harold Baim and Mr Valentine Dyall, about our exotic destination.

Is that Prince Rainier over there, sitting next to King Hussein?
