Two other Asian airlines, Cathay Pacific and Korean Air, reported that their pilots saw the November 29 missile test from the cockpit, however neither airline will change their "routes or operating parameters" at this time. "We remain alert and [will] review the situation as it evolves".

Airlines are already largely avoiding airspace controlled by North Korea in the Pyongyang flight information region, one of the sources said. The flights, one from San Francisco and the other from Los Angeles, were both headed for Incheon, the main airport serving Seoul, South Korea. The most recent incident was when the crew of Cathay Pacific and Korean Air spotted the Hwasong 15 missile launched last week by North Korea.

European airlines Lufthansa and Air France-KLM shifted their paths in August after two North Korean test launches in July.
