Aeroflot flight SU150, leaves Moscow at 14:04 local time (11:04 GMT) and will fly through US airspace a couple of kilometers from the coast of New York on its way to Havana, reported Russian news agency Interfax, citing a source in Sheremetevo airport air traffic control. Snowden has checked in for the flight and there are two seats under his name (17A and 17C), reports the Associated Press, citing Aeroflot. The plane has finished boarding and Snowden has not been seen on board.

Edward Snowden did not make his flight out of Moscow, the question is whether that was on purpose or not...

Journalists on-board are now all tweeting photo's of his empty seat. He's done a runner.

That’s absurd. How in the Hell did you Extrapolate that conclusion?
See the picture of the empty seats?
That just means that he is Not sitting in either one of those.
That doesn't mean that he Didn't upgrade to first class and is sitting in a completely different part of the plane. Also, maybe he is wearing a good disguise.
A member of the airport’s security team told Russian news agency Itar-Tass that Snowden had not left the airport’s transit zone.
“Snowden did not leave on the Aeroflot flight to Havana and is still in the transit zone,” said the source.

my guess is he may get a private jet out of Russia which goes on a different flight path that does not cross into US airspace, you know damn well the US will force the plane to land if it crosses into US airspace and Snowden is on board.
Good call from Snowdens Team!
