Cathay Pacific

It appears that I was mistaken in making this post. According to an Aviation Week article about the Dutch Safety Board(DSB) investigation,

"The DSB says 160 flights by 36 airlines operated over eastern Ukraine July 17 until the airspace was closed after the MH17 downing. Only one airline(not named but presumed to be British Airways) had previously decided to stop flying over Ukraine due to the unrest, and that decision occurred before armed conflict broke out in the eastern region of the country. "Insofar as the DSB was able to ascertain, no other operators changed their flight routes for safety reasons related to the conflict" says the DSB"

So, to clarify,

Congratulations BA. The only airline willing to pay the price for safety. They should be rewarded with passenger travel.
