As tensions ratchet up between Iran and the US, the larger world too faces the music.
The British Airlines flight (BA134) to Heathrow from Mumbai took a sudden turn while flying over Kuwait and then crossed Egypt's Cairo and Alexandria for a touchdown at Athens.
This comes after Iran firing ballistic missiles on the US bases in Iraq, the act was seen as avenging for their slain military commander Qasem Soleimani who was killed by the US.
Moreover, the Ukranian Boeing-737 crashed taking off from Tehran killing over 170 people with the capacity being 180, on the wee hours of Wednesday.
Many international airlines companies have practised caution and avoided the Iran-Iraq airspace. The Federal Aviation Authority (FAA) has prohibited US flights from flying over there. Whereas, the CAA (Civil Aviation Authority) of the UK hasn't passed any such orders as yet.
The flight touched down the Heathrow airport 4 hours and 25 minutes after the actual arriving time.
The BA134 flight was seen flying into Saudi Arabia after it had circled back southwest over Kuwait after a brief time on the Iran-Iraq airspace, the tracking site FlightRadar24 displayed the flight's movement.
