Russian ban on western flights will add time and cost to Asian travel

The Prime Minister of Russia, Dmitry Medvedev, announced that the Kremlin is considering placing a ban on U.S. and EU carriers, preventing them from flying over Russia. This is in response to sanctions placed on the country by the EU, Canada, the United States, and a couple other countries over Russia’s involvement with Ukraine. If the ban is set, all flights to Southeast Asia, Japan, and China will have to take other routes, increasing the time and fuel costs for every flight. EU carriers Lufthansa, British Airways, Finnair, Air France, and KLM will be the most affected. Lufthansa alone has 180 flights per week over Siberia. Most flights would probably be canceled and would drive up the cost of the remaining flights.
