Qatar Airways over Iran

Post by Berf »

I wonder how happy British or indeed any other nationality passengers on Qatar flights out of Cardiff and Heathrow are to be flying over Iran right now.

I heard a report yesterday that the airlines were rerouting away from potential danger. Not an unusual plan as, last April, our flight home from Singapore avoided it’s usual route over the Pakistan Indian border as things were a little hot in that area.

Given the airspace restrictions already placed on Qatari registered aircraft, they don't have a great deal of choice.

If I was on such a flight I´d not be very happy at all.

BA rerouted my friend's Bahrain flight over Egypt and Saudi Arabia.
