That prompted the FAA to tell U.S. carriers not to fly into Tel Aviv. And several airlines canceled flights to Israel on their own, as NPR's Brian Naylor reports.<p>BRIAN NAYLOR, BYLINE: The airlines were led by Delta, which diverted a Tel Aviv-bound flight this morning to Paris. The Boeing 747 originated at JFK airport in New York and carried 273 passengers and 17 crew. The airline says it has suspended service to Ben Gurion until further notice.
