Airline Cancels Flight Rather Than Sell Tickets To Israelis
Kuwait Airlines is canceling its New York-London run rather than do business with Israelis.
“On December 15th, Kuwait Airways informed the United States Department of Transportation that they will be eliminating service between JFK and London Heathrow,” said a department spokesperson.
The feds were considering pulling Kuwait Airways’ permit to fly in the United States because the airline was refusing to sell tickets to customers with Israeli passports. The airline has at least twice refused to let customers with Israeli passports buy tickets on flights from New York to London because Kuwait has a law that prohibits its citizens from doing business with Israeli customers.
