Unlawful discrimination by Kuwait Airways Corporation (KAC)

KAC unlawfully discriminates against Israeli nationals by refusing to recognize their passports or fly them on any of its flights on routes around the world. After alerting the U.S. Department of Transportation of this discriminatory behavior, The Lawfare Project took steps to force the airline to choose between complying with federal and international law, or facing the termination of its lease at JFK International Airport. KAC canceled their JFK-London route resulting in millions of dollars of pecuniary loss.

The Lawfare Project simultaneously brought suit against KAC in Switzerland, which resulted in KAC shutting down all of its inter-European flights, eliminating nearly half of their flight paths around the world. We are now litigating in Frankfurt to force KAC to comply with German anti-discrimination law on its flights to non-Arab League destinations with transfers in Kuwait.
