All U.S. airlines ordered to stop flying to Tel Aviv
State Department spokesperson Marie Harf told reporters in the daily press briefing that there is a possibility that the FAA could extend the flight ban beyond 24 hours.
United Airlines also canceled flights, according to a company statement.
Other non-U.S. airlines that have canceled flights include Lufthansa and Air France, according to the Associated Press.
“We have been maintaining our service as the national airline of Israel,” Stein said.
Dov Aloof, a high school senior from Israel who was visiting New Jersey this summer, had planned to fly back to Tel Aviv on Thursday night until Delta canceled his flight.
