An airline spokesperson told CNNMoney on Wednesday that it had rerouted daily flights between the South Korean capital, Seoul, and Los Angeles after Pyongyang test-fired an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) in July.

At the latest launch on November 29, flight crews on planes run by airlines such as Korean Air and Cathay Pacific reported sightings of missile activity while in the air.

Crew on board a Cathay Pacific plane flying over Japan reported a suspected sighting of last week's North Korean missile test, the airline said.

Mr Wright also said the "flash" seen by Korean pilots about an hour after the missile's launch would be consistent with the warhead heating up during reentry, since the missile flew for 53 to 54 minutes.

Pyongyang reported that its latest missile flew as high as 2,800 miles. "At the moment, no one is changing any routes or operating parameters", the airline said in a statement.

In the case of the latest launch of the Hwasong-15, which experts say can strike anywhere in the U.S. with a nuclear payload, North Korea used a mobile stand possibly to avoid detection, according to Panda. "We remain alert and (will) review the situation as it evolves".

The chances of one of Kim's missiles actually hitting a civilian plane is very low, experts said.

The North Korean missile was sacked very high up, reaching an altitude of 4,475 kilometers (2,780 miles) before falling back into the Sea of Japan about 950 kilometers (600 miles) from where it was launched.

According to the Committee of chiefs of staffs of armed forces of South Korea, the missile launched from the landfill in the North Korean city of Pinson in the province's toll.

European airlines Lufthansa and Air France-KLM shifted their paths in August after two North Korean test launches in July.
