destination angers Jewish passengers
July 5, 2002
Arguments broke out between passengers and crew on an Air France
flight from Paris to Tel Aviv after a pilot described the final
destination as Israel-Palestine.
Israeli army radio said Jewish and Israeli passengers on the flight
were angered by the announcement over the plane's loud-speaker system
on the way to Israel's Ben Gurion airport.
Some of the passengers complained to the airport authorities and
the Israeli Border Police after landing.
Israeli police said that the pilot did not get off the plane and
the matter had been referred to the Foreign Office.
