Delta Flight 468 had 273 passengers and 17 crew on board.

US Airways scrapped its one flight to Tel Aviv on Tuesday. Germany's Lufthansa and Air France also suspended flights. The actions come days after a Malaysia Airlines jet was shot down over eastern Ukraine with 298 people on board. Following the action by the US airlines, the Federal Aviation Administration prohibited US airlines from flying to the Tel Aviv airport for 24 hours. Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 was shot down over eastern Ukraine on Thursday while flying at 33,000 feet.
