The celebration of the 76th independence of Lebanon was indeed special and unique this year; all Lebanese women, men, children, and elders from all sects took part in patriotic events and activities across Lebanon, abroad, and even in the sky.
Passengers onboard welcomed this initiative as they appeared happy taking photos with the flight attendants. They also took to their personal Instagram, sharing their moments as they engaged with each other and the flight attendants.
That same day, the MEA crew celebrated their country’s 76th independence, standing respectfully as they sang the national anthem, along with captain Rola Hoteit.
From their side, the MEA Cadets sent their special greetings to the Lebanese nation, posting on Instagram a photo taken for the occasion, with the caption, “Wishing you a Happy Independence day from MEA Cadets.”
What stood out as unique as well is that many of the Lebanese expatriates have previously decided to fly back home to join their Lebanese fellow protesters for a meaningful celebration of Lebanon’s Independence Day.
