Ira Sharkansky reported on that arriving travelers waited up to seven hours for their luggage, or went away without it. Planes took off minus their passengers' checked bags.

The Minister of Tourism pleaded for reason, saying that this was not a way for tourism to recover from the damage done by the recent war in Lebanon.
