German airline Lufthansa barred more than 100 Orthodox Jews from boarding a connecting aircraft at Frankfurt Airport last week over mask dispute.

Following a compliance issue with mask requirements, German airline Lufthansa barred more than 100 Orthodox Jews from boarding a connecting aircraft at Frankfurt Airport last week.

Although most Jews wore their masks properly, the airline decided to forbid over 100 visibly Jewish passengers from boarding the plane.

One passenger shared a video of a conversation with a Lufthansa official at the gate, who confessed that Jews were barred from taking the connecting flight.
