Middle East Airlines' listing could be delayed by global financial turmoil

Premium Analysis

Middle East Airline (MEA) is one of several carriers deferring equity raising plans, due to the global financial crisis.

It had been scheduled for early 2009. MEA is 99%-owned by the Lebanese Central Bank.
