Airlines Warned To Avoid Iranian Airspace After Iran Shot Down ₦79b US Spy Drone by obafemee80(m): 7:46pm On Jun 22, 2019


A number of global Airlines, including British Airways, KLM, Qantas and Lufthansa, have confirmed that they will not fly over Iranian airspace, following advice from the Federal Aviation Authority (FAA) banning all US carriers from the route.

The warning follows the tensions between the US and Iran after Iran shot down a $220m ( or ₦79 billion) high-altitude U.S. drone with a surface-to-air missile and comes after commander of the Revolutionary Guards Aerospace Force, Amir Ali Hajizadeh, boasted he could have shot down a US P8 aircraft with 35 personnel on board while it was violating Iran’s airspace.



He also said Iran decided to shoot down the US surveillance drone, which he said was in Iranian airspace, to only send a message to Washington.

Federal Aviation Administration said:

“There were numerous civil aviation aircraft operating in the area at the time of the intercept,' it said, adding that its prohibition would stay in place until further notice.”

British Airways, Air France, American Airlines, Delta Air Lines, Malaysia Airlines, Australia's Qantas Airways, Singapore Airlines Ltd and KLM have all confirmed they were re-routing their flights to avoid the area.

Flying over Iranian airspace right now is synonymous to flying over the Bermuda triangle, its a journey of no return

Yes, Iran is not smiling now...

The US spy drone was shot down from over 60000 feet above, that's almost twice as high as a commercial airliner.

I just hope they resolve the issue in order not to turn into a nuclear-powered 3rd world war... grin

The two other World Powers, Russia and China, are watching grin

US tooo Dey look for trouble.



If it’s Iranian drone now they will shout terrorist and claim they are protecting American lives.


But the truth is if this war that is brewing starts, Americans will suffer more civilian casualties more.



Cos those Iranians or Middle East people don’t have human conscience.

I support Iran if actually the drone was in their airspace. Iran proclaimed a 'no fly zone' in their airspace. Why violate it?



Meanwhile, i laugh grin when some people say US can't stand Iran.

See, if Iran do anyhow, US will erase them from the map of the world in less than 24 hours.

That's how you guys were cheering Iraq back in the days until they were dealt with. Who hear of Iraq today?

Shooting down a drone doesn't send any bloody message,its an act of cowardice downing an unmanned aerial vehicle.

I perceive in my spirit that this is the beginning of strained relationship between US and IRAN.
This case will be revisited again when the wounds dry up.

IRAN is too small for US to go full nuke on them. Trump sanctions are enough to make them bleed to death. As they are currently feeling the heat.

President Donald John Trump deserves an award!! A businessman turned Politician playing with the heads of so-called career politicians..

Someone should ask John Forbes Kerry what he went to Iran to do... The destroyers of the prosperous Libya Barack Obama, John Kerry, Hillary Clinton thought the guy man would play into their games of "He said he wouldn't fight any war"


Thank you Don!
