FRANKFURT: A group of approximately 200 Jews heading to Budapest from Lufthansa airport, are being denied entry to board their flights – only non-Jews are being allowed to board.
We confirm that a larger group of passengers could not be carried today on flight LH1334 from Frankfurt to Budapest, because the travelers refused to wear a medical mask on board. By law, Lufthansa is obliged to follow the legal requirements here. 1/2— Lufthansa (@lufthansa) May 4, 2022

Lufthansa is not anti-semitic, it flies thousands of jewish people every day. The passengers concerned were not refused boarding for being jewish. They were refused boarding for not complying with mandatory anti-covid mask regulations and not adhering to crew instructions.
This is not true, the travellers did not wear a FFP2 mask as required by German law to ensure everybody’s safety in the pandemic. This is the actual reason for offloading, please don’t blame it on antisemitism and stick with the facts.
