More Canceled Flights

Several international flights to the US have been canceled for the weekend:

British Airways and Air France on Saturday announced the cancellation of seven flights to and from the United States because of security concerns. BA canceled four flights between Heathrow Airport and Washington on Sunday and Monday and one from Heathrow to Miami on Sunday. Air France canceled two Paris-to-Washington flights.

There seems to be less information forthcoming on these cancellations than the ones over Christmas, and that’s probably a good thing. The spectacular attention those received may have exposed intelligence assets and scared off the terrorists. Let’s hope that security agencies have better luck this time around.
