Emirates cancels flights to Denmark because of cartoons


It appears the Danish cartoons are continuing to have an impact. Emirates has decided not to commence its planned service to Copenhagen. It has planned to fly there from 03 October 2006, but according to a Danish paper these flights have been cancelled.
.
An aviation news forum quotes a TV report stating that it is not "politically correct" for Emirates to fly to Denmark.
.
Is it therefore "politically correct" to fly Emirates at all?
.
UPDATE: The route is postponed, but it has only been reported in Denmark. It was to have been Emirates' first foray into Scandinavia.

So that's how it works.

If only we'd known this before, we could have given the Twin Towers an outer wallpaper of offensive comic strips to keep the planes away?
