Re: Airlines Suspending Flights to and over entire or parts of Gulf Region Thread

https://safeairspace.net/ I really hope that all other carriers who as of now are still overflying Iran and Iraq will stop doing so shortly. I for myself wont take the risk booking on any of those carriers anymore that are flying in that area. QR or EK won't stop overflying these countries. For tho...

Re: Airlines Suspending Flights to and over entire or parts of Gulf Region Thread

It's baffling some most of the EK flights avoiding Iranian space but flight to Stockholm and Moscow went over Iranian space. Agreed. EK212 (IAH-DXB on a 380) just flew above eastern Iraq skirting Iranian airspace, BUT the sister flight, EK211, continued its trait of overflying Iran just a few hours...

EK211 just crossed over Iran, maintaining its status quo. Puzzling, and as someone who will fly his family on EK211/212 (IAH-DXB-IAH) in March, this makes me nervous. Thoughts?
