SHOTLIST:AP Television - AP Clients onlyNew York City - July 22, 2014+++ ALL SOTS ARE SEPARATED BY WHITE FLASHES +++ 1. SOUNDBITE (English) Scott Mayerowitz, AP Airlines Reporter:"All US airlines flying to Israel have cancelled such flights today after a rocket fired from Gaza landed near Tel Aviv's airport."2. SOUNDBITE (English) Scott Mayerowitz, AP Airlines Reporter:"United Airlines and Delta Airlines have said they are cancelling flights indefinitely. US Airways has come out and said its cancelling its flights today and will reassess the situation."3. SOUNDBITE (English) Scott Mayerowitz, AP Airlines Reporter:"Airlines are constantly reevaluating their schedules and checking to see what airports they think it is safe to fly into and which ones they aren't. This is the first time they've cancelled flights to and from Tel Aviv, but this comes immediately following last week's shoot down of a Malaysian Airlines flight that was flying over Ukraine. A lot of airlines are looking at security a little more closely - what airspace they fly over. There was actually a Delta Airlines flight in the air already from New York to Tel Aviv - it was coming down to Israel - It was over Italy at the time of this rocket fire and decided that it would turn around and land in Paris instead."4. SOUNDBITE (English) Scott Mayerowitz, AP Airlines Reporter:"A lot of US airlines also let passengers book connecting tickets through European airports on their partners, such as Air France, KLM, or British Airways. As of now those flights have not been suspended but the airlines are all looking at the situation and trying to figure out what to do."STORYLINE:The Federal Aviation Administration is telling U.S. airlines they are prohibited from flying to the Tel Aviv airport in Israel after a Hamas rocket exploded nearby.The FAA said in a statement that the ban on flights is for 24 hours beginning at 12:15 p.m. EST (16125 GMT) on Tuesday.The statement said the rocket strike landed about one mile (1.6 kilometers) from Ben Gurion International Airport Tuesday morning.The notice only applies to U.S. airlines since the FAA has no authority over carriers from other nations.The agency said it will continue to monitor and evaluate the situation, and that updated instructions will be provided to U.S. airlines "as soon as conditions permit, but no later than 24 hours" from the time the directive went into force.
