Unrest in Egypt disrupts air travel

Mounting unrest in Egypt disrupted air travel to and from Cairo and other major Egyptian cities on Saturday as carriers canceled or delayed flights. Delta Airlines announced that it was indefinitely suspending its flights from the US to Cairo 'as a result of civil unrest'. British Airways said it had revised its flight schedule to land well ahead of the start of the 4 p.m. to 8 a.m. curfew imposed by the government in response to widening unrest. Dutch-based KLM, Italy's Alitalia, EgyptAir and Emirates said they would continue to fly to Egypt but on schedules adjusted to accommodate the curfew.
