The [United States] Transportation Department threatened legal action Thursday [October 22, 2015] against Kuwait Airways for refusing to sell tickets to Israelis.
The department ordered the airline to “cease and desist from refusing to transport Israeli citizens between the U.S. and any third country where they are allowed to disembark,” according to a letter from Blane Workie, the department’s assistant general counsel for enforcement.
If the airline continues to refuse, Workie said, “the department will have no choice but to pursue further administrative and/or judicial action.”
