  1. Whew, was due to fly over Iranian airspace this week. My shit can safely go back up into my bowels now.

  2. All major airlines should stop flying to Iran until they admit to what they did.

  3. This is the best tl;dr I could make, [original](https://www.dw.com/en/lufthansa-nixes-iran-flights-other-airlines-reroute/a-51956667) reduced by 80%. (I’m a bot)

    > Lufthansa group, the German airline conglomerate that also owns Eurowings, Austrian Airlines, Brussels Airlines, and Swiss Air, announced on Friday that it was canceling flights to Tehran.

    > Norwegian Air will reroute flights to Dubai to avoid both countries as well, and Alitalia said it was doing the same for its flights to India and the Maldives.

    > Turkish Airlines, Emirates, Qatar Airways and Russia's Aeroflot will be operating flights to Iran as usual.

  4. Good news for Turkish Airlines, Emirates, Qatar Airways and Russia’s Aeroflot.

    Every disaster is an opportunity for someone.

  5. A smart move. When Trump announced he was working on a peace plan – right after an ill-conceived assassination of an Iranian official – my first thought was, “OK, and what’s he going to tweet tomorrow?”

    A lot of the GOP wants a war with Iran. Trump has wanted a war with Iran and probably will again tomorrow. Hopefully the complete lack of ally support will put an end to it, but I wouldn’t bet my airliners on it.
