British Airways Cancels 3 U.S. Flights

British Airways has canceled three flights from Heathrow Airport to Washington, D.C. and Miami because of government security concerns, the airline said Saturday. On Friday, U.S. officials said new intelligence indicated BA flight 223 and Air France flights from Paris to an unspecified U.S. city could be terrorist targets. There was no immediate word from the French authorities on any cancellations. “We remain concerned about al-Qaida’s desire to target aviation, especially international aviation,” U.S. Homeland Security Department spokesman Brian Roehrkasse said. “The U.S. intelligence community continues to gather specific credible threat information on international flights, as we have done in an ongoing basis in the past few weeks.” British Airways said on Saturday that flight 223 to Washington’s Dulles airport would not fly on Sunday or Monday, but was to depart on schedule at 3:05 p.m. Saturday. Flight 207 to Miami would not fly on Sunday, a spokeswoman said. The flight left Saturday morning as scheduled. Full Story
