The only airline you need to avoid is Aeroflot. The rest are fine.

Safe as one can be with these things which are unpredictable , probably longer flying times since they will avoid Iran but could be prone to delays or even cancellations.

Fly cathay otherwise, their economy fares are now cheaper than ever because of the reduced load factor due to the unrest in HK I guess. I have never seen $800 RT to India on CX before.

If you take Etihad or Emirates, you have to go through US immigration at Dubai or Abu Dhabi airports

That’s just etihad with their Abu Dhabi pre clearance facility. And it’s not a bad thing, after all.

Yes I came back yesterday via Qatar - no issue whatsoever

They are not avoiding Iran airspace at the moment. Especially qatar with their other blockades they have nowhere to go for west bound flights.

That’s true Qatar has no choice

How does it matter? Most airlines using Iranian or Iraqi airspace are diverting planes..

Check which airlines are avoiding Iranian air space. Air canada and United are. But Emirates isn’t.

Yes! Just took Emirates and a friend took Saudi airlines to India- all good!

^Just etihad. Looking at their flight paths on the tracker apps Middle East carriers don’t seem to be skirting that air space. Makes me nervous

No. Just Etihad has preclearance

I’m taking Lufthansa but they are avoiding Iranian airspace for now

Think about it... If something happens to the middle East carriers "somebody's gonna get hurt"!!! And Iran knows that too..

I booked a round trip flight to Dubai through Expedia, and I wasn't allowed to board my flight. I showed the gate agent my passport, vaccine card and Negative PCR test, and I was told they wouldn't let me board because my PCR test didn't have a QR code. I've spent hours on the phone with Expedia and they end up transferring to Emirates to have them rebook my flight. The representative at Emirates claim they cannot help and ask me to contact Expedia. It's been a back an forth the last 6 hours.
