How the Internet makes a world of difference III

EgyptAir’s wayward route map may have picked up some attention in the last few days but we came across it last August* when we pointed out other examples of questionable geography.

The Israeli press is bemoaning the airbrushing of Tel Aviv – not really a great surprise, although it’s led to some eccentric interpretations.

It’s the placing of Damascus a long way north of Beirut, when it’s actually south, which is the real schoolboy howler. Must try harder.




* There was a tactful reason for not mentioning this before. Airline Business’ cover interview in the same month was with, er, EgyptAir chairman Hussein Massoud.
