Airlines are refusing to carry paid up passengers

Quite a few of the flytilla people have received a ‘boarding denied’ email from Jet2 (who fly out from Manchester to Israel. Luftansa is also refusing to take people on board on Sunday. But hundreds from across Europe should still get through to Tel Aviv and face stint in an Israeli prison.

The email from Jet2 stated
'Jet2.com is required by the Israeli authorities to provide Advance Passenger Information in relation to all passengers that it carries on flights to Israel. Advance Passenger Information includes a passenger's name, date of birth, passport number and nationality.

In accordance with Article 7 of its Terms and Conditions, Jet2.com has provided Advance Passenger Information in respect of your flight from Manchester to Israel. As a result of providing that Information, Jet2.com has been informed by the Israeli authorities that you will not be not permitted to enter Israel. Consequently, if Jet2.com carries you to Israel, you will be refused entry and Jet2.com will be liable for both a fine and your return to Manchester.

As a result, and in accordance with Article 24 of its Terms and Conditions, Jet2.com: "may refuse to carry you where such action is necessary for reasons of safety and/or security and/or to comply with any applicable laws, regulations or orders of any country to be flown from, into or over including laws or regulations relating to Advance Passenger Information requirements." We regret that, in light of the decision taken by the Israeli authorities, we are unable to accept you for carriage to Israel on this occasion and your booking with Jet2.com has been cancelled.

In accordance with Article 26.3 of its Terms and Conditions, Jet2.com is a non-refundable airline and we will therefore be unable to offer any refund, with the exception of a refund of the applicable taxes paid, as a result of the decision taken by the Israeli authorities.
Jet2.com would like to apologise for the inconvenience caused by the cancellation of your booking, which we hope you will appreciate is totally beyond our control.

So passengers are refused the service and they can't get a refund. Outrageous!

Dozens of passengers who bought a plane ticket to travel to Tel Aviv Sunday on April 15 were notified Thursday by the airline Lufthansa that their reservation was canceled, ” by order of Israel.”
“Israel has produced a list of names of persons to whom this country denies entry. Yours is on it, which brings us to cancel your ticket and we immediately after will refund to your credit card. ” as have said employees of Lufthansa to the passengers.

Having failed to discern in the lists of passengers previously sent to Israel by the airlines, those who intended to participate in the mission Welcome to Palestine and those who were not involved, the Israeli government, greatly accustomed to large “collateral damage” has apparently decided to put them in bulk on its blacklist. At least two people not involved in the mission and had planned to stay in Israel, we have been reported on the evening of Thursday.

Passengers on Lufthansa flights have not committed any offense, and do not accept these mafia-methods, favored by governments complicit in the imprisonment of the Palestinian people, starting with the French government.
