Air France Cancels Christmas

Uncategorized December 24 2003 2 Comments

Air France has cancelled its 12/24 and 12/25 flights between LAX and Paris due to terrorist threats. French police have apparently intercepted e-mails (not spam, I hope) suggesting that Al Qaeda may be planning airplane-related terrorist attacks during the X-mas period.

    According to the news we have here in France, the flights have been cancelled after the US intelligence services intercepted those emails, not the French police. The case is still under investigation, but so far nothing proves such an attack had been planned .

    Great point. The big concern now is that if the US was being overly cautious, will other countries ever cancel flights again when there truly is a risk.
