Well it's kind of academic, since IY won't be flying to LHR anyway.
The question I have is, what are other countries going to do? If the British CAA bans flights to the UK, won't it put pressure on the French and other countries to look at security arrangements and ban flights if necessary?

this is a temporary measure but for sure it wont be lifted anytime soon
Aviation security experts are in Yemen assessing procedures and will make recommendations which if/when implemented MAY result in resumption of service
Amongst other measures also announced:
roll out of body scanners
more sniffer dogs
more explosive trace swabs
No fly lists and persons of interest lists
More data collection on passengers no later than 24hrs ahead of departure
I wonder if there is some intel out there driving this now......or just aligning procedures more closely with USA?...or even just best practice in todays world
