big criticism here. pilot announces there is a blockage to pakistan airspace = hour delay leaving dubai. lot of people's connections too close to this and flight reassignment necessary and considerable delay. why cant you or the airlines involved start factoring this in as what the world is at the moment instead of this constant hassle for all involved?
