Back in July, It was decided that Beirut Airport would be a completely smoke-free airport. They even went as far as removing the ashtrays. But we all know that in Lebanon rules are heavily enforced for the first couple of days after a decision has been made.
I was at the airport last week and I saw darak (cops), amn el 3am (general security) and passengers smoking all over the place.
Since there are no more ashtrays, they are basically putting out there cigarettes in the place where the ashtrays used to be.
Lebanese people have some serious issues when it comes to following the rules. pisses me off to see such things happening.
They should be replaced as a fire hazard now exists.
Hourray to Johnny.B!!!! He truly deserves it!
Lebanese creativity at its worst!
hehehehe first time i ever win something in a draw :p
i smoked at the airport myself in october, thats one rule im glad isnt followed!
Good job ali, rules don’t apply to you.
Well, isn’t that just frustrating. Blatant disregard for the rules..
I got to see this first hand yesterday, and the guy actually dropped the cigarette while trying to put it out “where the ashtray used to be”, and ended up setting the garbage on fire.
Chi Bicharrif !
Why not install smoke detectors, and sprinkle with pee the culprit?
