I said that they were not caught off guard so there should have been no reason to circle over the Black Sea to find out what to do. European airspace has now been closed for more than 2 hours which gave them (or tather QS ops) plenty of time to come up with a solution.

TVS4160 is not heading towards Tel Aviv. It is now circling near Malta.

Given that both planes are not descending, maybe QS is negotiating for a waiver but wants them to be near IST and MLA in case that it does not come forward.
