Dr Vacy Vlazna writes to Air France CEO re acquiesence to Israel over flytilla 19Apr12 April 19, 2012

Last week the Welcome to Palestine campaign was launched  in which hundreds of  people booked flights to Israel to visit Palestine.  Most passengers paid flights were  cancelled by Lufthansa, Air France and Easyjet, after Israel placed pressure on the airlines. On  April 15, a passenger was removed from an Airfrance flight after questioning revealed she was not Jewish violating international and European law by subjecting prospective passengers to illegal religious discrimination.


Mr Jean-Cyril Spinetta
Chairman & CEO, Air France KLM

I assume that the title of Air France’s  Corporate  social responsibility report ” Together; Open and Committed”  applies only to your company’s association with the state of Israel.

Clearly it doesn’t apply to your paying customers who are not Jewish and who are travelling to Palestine via Israel.

It is disappointing to see AirFrance abdicate its corporate independence to be led by the nose by Israel and thereby collude in Israel’s occupation of Palestine  which violates international law. (Echoes of Vichy)

Not only has Israel’s reputation been damaged by its bullying of  collaborationist governments and airlines, but the airlines have  been tainted by Israel’s racism especially Air France for its disgusting removal of a passenger who was discovered after questioning not to be Jewish on April 15.

Shame Air France
