Delta Airlines has partnered with Saudi Arabian Airlines. As a result, Delta will now respect SA Airlines’ more despicable policies. Policies such as the one that precludes Jewish people from entering the Kingdom.
I don’t fly often, but when I do, you can be damned sure I won’t be flying Delta.
So, Jews can’t fly to Saudi Arabia. That’s long been a policy of The Kingdom. But this ban on Jews is being implemented by Delta. Delta will be the ones doing the paper-work and enforcing it at the gate. It’ll be on them. Also, on anyone carrying a cross. So, sort of evenhanded at least:
Jews and Israelis, or passengers carrying any non-Islamic article of faith, will not be able to fly Delta Air Lines flights from the U.S. to Saudi Arabia under Delta’s new partnership with Saudi Arabian Airlines.
After the expected uproar, USAToday pulled the article, citing “incomplete information,” but the original comments are still there. There is, however, a Religion post at USAToday that discusses this insanity. Keep some duct tape handy.
