Unable to fly through Russian airspace because of the war in Ukraine, U.S. airlines are stepping up a lobbying campaign on Capitol Hill and at the White House to address what they say is a growing problem: They are losing business to foreign competitors who can take passengers between the United States and Asia faster and more cheaply.

Now airlines are pressing the White House and Congress to fix the problem by subjecting foreign carriers from nations not already banned from Russian airspace to the same restrictions applied to U.S. airlines, effectively forcing them to fly the same routes as their American competitors.

Note that AFAIK there is no official ban on US flights over Russia. The airlines themselves voluntarily taken that decision to show 'solidarity with Ukraine.'

Now airlines (mostly from Asia) who declined to follow suit stepped into the vacant market and making big profit due to the self-ban, US airlines butthurt and now lobby White House so that everyone else also cannot not fly over Russia and also suffer like they did.

HAHAHAHA

What is dumb is that the US airlines are self-banning to show 'solidarity with Ukraine'.

Nobody is stopping them to land in Moscow tomorrow if they so choose.

Btw, the comments in twitter shows how stupid those folks are... They thought entire Russia is at war right now.... I guess they are too stupid to know that Russia starts from west of Poland/Ukraine till Japan... They don't call Russia the largest country in the world for nothing....
