Boycott Call: Lufthansa Omits Israel from ‘Free Baggage’ List
ZOA calls to boycott German airline for ‘blatant anti-Semitic discrimination’ in omitting Israel from Middle East list of ‘two free bags.’
For probably the first time since 1933, an organized Jewish boycott of German products has been called. The reason: Lufthansa’s admission that Israel is the only country in the Middle East that cannot benefit from the German airline’s special baggage allowance policy.
The Zionist Organization of America (ZOA) is now officially urging travelers not to fly Lufthansa because of its discrimination against Israel and against travelers to Israel.
The more generous policy, which allows two suitcases (up to 23 kilograms each) free of charge, conspicuously excludes travelers to and from Israel.
Perhaps this was merely an oversight? The ZOA wrote to Lufthansa this past May, asking for an explanation for the policy: “We hope that Israel’s omission was merely an oversight and was not done intentionally. If it was intentional, it would clearly constitute anti-Semitism.”
