Most English-language articles I am reading now, including some that earlier spoke of overflight bans, are being more reserved on that topic for the moment. Wording such as

All the nations also said they planned to cut air and sea traffic to the peninsular country. It wasn't immediately clear how that would affect Qatar Airways, one of the region's major long-haul carriers. The airline and Qatari government officials did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

So it's not 100% clear to be now (or yet) if overflight bans will be part of this
