Kuwait Airways Pays Damages to Israeli Barred from Heathrow Flight 


Kuwait Airways has agreed to pay substantial damages plus costs to an Israeli national, Mandy Blumenthal, who was refused a ticket on a flight from London to Bangkok on the grounds of her nationality last November, Jewish News-UK reports.

Her encounter at the Kuwait Airways desk was filmed and the video is available on YouTube.

Lawyer David Berens said: “The law is clear: direct discrimination on grounds of nationality in the provision of a service to the public is illegal. Ms. Blumenthal has done a service in showing up Kuwait Airways’ illegal policy. Kuwait Airways is now legally obliged to end this policy or end its services from the UK altogether.”
