Some major airlines were re-routing flights Wednesday after Europe's air traffic control agency warned aircraft flying in the eastern Mediterranean to exercise caution due to possible air strikes on Syria.A spokeswoman for Air France said the airline had changed some flights paths following the warning, including for Beirut and Tel Aviv flights, while budget airline easyJet said it would also re-route flights from Tel Aviv.The only commercial flights above Syria as of 0115 GMT Wednesday were being flown by Syrian Air and Lebanon's Middle East Airlines, according to flight tracking website FlightRadar24 . At other periods later in the day, there were no flights using the airspace.Ryanair and British Airways representatives said flights were operating normally at their respective airlines, but the situation was being monitored closely.Last year, North Korea tested missiles without warning, leading some airlines to re-route flights to avoid portions of the Sea of Japan.
