Right now I'm thinking about a nice, cool, glass of orange juice, but all I have is a lousy glass of warm diet coke.

But more seriously I have no idea what this would be for, albeit to avoid having to ask for landing/flyover permissions. Ultimately it must have something to do with oil.

I can't help myself since my return from Poland, I just want to tease people. I can't control it.

Well, the flight from France is longer. Plus, a helicopter ride from France to the Middle East may not be workable ;^)

This is simply a short flight. And, you don't run the risk of having someone take a run at your ship with explosives.
