From the Seattle Post-Intelligencer:
The executives at Delta Airlines must hate the Internet.
First, Delta gets a digital beating earlier this month over charging $2,800 in baggage fees to an Army unit return from Afghanistan.
And now there is a question — and subsequent Web dust-up — about whether the airline is banning Jews from flights to Saudi Arabia.
The Religion News Service reports:
Jews and Israelis, or passengers carrying any non-Islamic article of faith, will not be able to fly code-share flights from the U.S. to Saudi Arabia under Delta Air Line’s new partnership with Saudi Arabian Airlines that is set to begin in 2012.
Delta announced in January that Sauda Arabian Airlines was joining SkyTeam, a global alliance of more than one-dozen carriers.
