A United Airline’s flight to Tel Aviv was cancelled after pilots refused to fly.
Pilots had reportedly refused to fly ‘because of the security situation’ and passengers said they were told, as boarding of the flight began at Newark.
The flight was then cancelled.
Later when questioned, United responded on Twitter it was due to a ‘flight curfew in light of the security situation.’
Flight paths to Tel Aviv had been revised due to the ongoing tensions in Gaza.
