[UPDATE 3 OCTOBER 2012] Emirates has cancelled its above planned service resumption to Tripoli, due to resume from 29 October 2012. The cancellation is likely due to the ongoing instability still rocking Libya, which in recent weeks culminated in the violent death of the American Ambassador in Benghazi, Chris Stevens.
