Safely through Qatar

My sister and her husband booked their flights ages ago. Then they woke up a day before they were due to fly to hear the other Arab nations were turning on Qatar. It was touch and go if they would fly at all. The flight route was changed so it goes along tbe Iranian border and what if all the non Qatar air space around Qatar got locked so there was no way out of Dohar. Between worrying about getting shot down over Iran or locked into Qatar with no way home I didn't think they would make it from NZ to the UK but they are now safely out of Qatar and on their way to Heathrow. I watched their entire journey on a flight tracker which is how I know.

Were they holidaying in NZ or do they live there ... will they have an issue getting back if they need to do so? My Mumsy does the flight tracker thing when anybody she knows travels by plane. She loves it!

That is a relief.These days we can't be sure when and where such problems arise.

Yes this all came on rather unexpectedly and I am sure it is a rear worry to those who are caught up in it. I am glad they are out safely and on their way.
