Venezuelan Airline: Screw You, USA!

I’m not sure I’ve ever seen an airline introduce flights solely to piss off another government, but here we go:  Venezuela’s state airline, Conviasa, has launched flights to Iran, via Syria, from Caracas.  Iran’s national airline, strangely, also launched service from Iran to Caracas, via Syria, last spring.  Must be a lot of demand for that route.  A Syrian official said that the route was launched to combat the harassment Muslims are receiving in the US after 9/11.  Or something.
