Safe to Fly Over Libya?

I am flying to Tanzania via Amsterdam in about 10 days on KLM. The normal flight path takes the flight over Libya (near Tripoli). Is this safe with all of the unrest there and an unstable ruler who might just want to go out in a blaze of destruction?

I would not worry about that......you would be amazed at who is actally watching airtraffic in this region....

The situation in and overhead Libya is closely monitored 24 hr a day, so if there's any concern at all they'll fly another route, probably via Egypt. Nothing to worry about, enjoy KLM! ;-)

Because of the lack of air traffic control in some parts of Libya there will be no flights via Libya at this point by KLM.

Thanks. How did you find that info for KLM? I have looked on the web but can't seem to find any information. I kind of assumed that they would not fly over anyway, but it would be nice to know since as you can tell from my moniker I am not the happiest flier!
