The US Department of Transportation informed the airline it must allow Israeli passengers on flights from the US to other countries, but the airline's hatred of Israel is so deep that it would rather lose profitable business rather than allow even one Israeli to board its airplanes.

In a challenge to boycotts of Israel, the U.S. government has found that Kuwait Airways unlawfully discriminated against a passenger traveling on an Israeli passport by refusing to sell him a ticket for a New York to London flight.

“I didn’t think discrimination like this could exist in America, in JFK (Airport), in New York City. If they want to operate here, they have to obey our laws."
