Qatar Airlines flight 420 climbed north-west out of Doha last Thursday in the direction of its destination, Beirut. It seemed poised to follow the direct route, skimming the Iraqi-Saudi border, penetrating the Jordanian horn, then descending over southern Syria before landing at Rafik Hariri International Airport.Then, to Micaela Browning's irritation, the plane turned northward – north-east, in fact – to avoid the Saudi coast, and Kuwait and Iraq, and plunged into Iran, turning a three-hour flight into a five-hour one.The information sharing is critical as Russia, France, and America intensify their bombing campaign over beleaguered Syria.Asked why he thought other airlines avoid Syrian airspace, Hasan declined to conjecture.
