Terrorist Flight Cancellation Update

For the third time in three days, officials have cancelled a British Airways flight into the US because of terrorism fears.

In similar news, the WSJ Europe is reporting that the Christmas cancellation of Air France flights was a mistake. Reuters reports:

French officials said that when French agents detained the passengers on the Paris-Los Angeles flights with names matching those on the list, Air France found the name matching that of the head of a Tunisian-based terror group was a child.

Another “terrorist” was a Welsh insurance agent while a third was an elderly Chinese woman who once ran a restaurant in Paris, the newspaper said. The other three on the list were French citizens.
