That possible scenario would not take place because the U.S. Navy would vector the commercial aircraft out ot the area before the bombing started. You are not allowed to fly over Iraqi airspace anyway. There is a no fly zone over much of the country. Last night you would have been met by F-14 Tomcats telling you to choose another route to England or whereever.
