This article was amended on Wednesday, March 13 2019

This article originally stated that all six of the canceled Flydubai flights had been scheduled to depart from Beirut Wednesday. In fact, the six flights include departures and arrivals scheduled for Wednesday and Thursday. It has also been updated to reflect that the other flights canceled were also scheduled for both Wednesday and Thursday, not just Wednesday. The article has also been corrected to clarify that the DGCA did not ground 737 MAX planes in Beirut, as no such aircraft were in Lebanon when the circular was released. The Daily Star regrets the errors.
