“Fears of a North Korean missile accidentally obliterating a passenger plane during one of Kim Jong Un’s unannounced, uncoordinated rocket launches prompted at least one airline to change its flight course this year, a spokesperson told Fox News on Thursday. Singapore Airlines, in response to North Korea’s July launch of an intercontinental ballistic missile, changed its route for flights between Incheon, South Korea and Los Angeles, Calif. The new route avoided the northern part of the Sea of Japan, the spokesperson said. ‘The safety of our customers and crew is our number one priority and we continuously monitor the areas that we overfly,’ the spokesperson added.” (12/07/17)
