Re: The list of airlines

And by way of follow-up, now that the full list of airports and airlines is available I have done some quick research and noticed that no US carrier flies to any of the airports on that list (meaning the operating carrier, not codeshares). Therefore no US airline is directly affected. Coincidence?

This appears to be an easy way of discouraging the use of non-US airlines when travelling to the USA from the Middle East.
