Kuwait Airways is no longer selling tickets for flights between New York's John F. Kennedy airport and London's Heathrow, after the Transportation Department threatened legal action for its refusal to sell tickets to Israelis.

"Today, Kuwait Airways informed the U.S. DOT that they will be eliminating service between JFK and London Heathrow," Namrata Kolachalam, a department spokeswoman, said Tuesday.

The airline didn't immediately respond to a request for comment.

"Sorry, we were unable to process your request due to either no operating flight or no seats available," the airline's web site replied Tuesday, when asked for flights from JFK to Heathrow. But other flights directly to Kuwait City or to other destinations connecting through Kuwait are available.

The end of the route came after the Transportation Department investigated the airline's refusal to sell Eldad Gatt, an Israeli citizen, a ticket from JFK to Heathrow in 2013.

Anyone know what religion Kuwait has adopted

Where is all of the rage from the usual leftist loonies and Israel/Jew haters about a BDS movement against this racist, Judaphobic hatemongering airline and all of the racist, hatermongering, Judaphobic, Apartheid Muslim OCCUPIED states????? None of whom have freedom of religion, speech, conscience or press as Israel does? Hypocritical twats.

This would be an expensive action for the airline to lose the income from such a prestigious route, I'm glad that they do. It only serves to show the deep anti-Semitism that Muslims have and that is supported by the Judeophobes on care2 including the support team.
