The 200 Chassidim from the US who got stuck in Frankfurt, Germany, after Lufthansa Airlines did not allow them to board their connecting flight to Hungary are seriously considering filing a lawsuit against the airline company.
The group said what Lufthansa did to them was a form of Semitism.
Lufthansa earlier said they refused the group to continue their travel to Hungary since some refused to wear masks.
But the group defended that if that is the case, they should only impose the penalty on the offender and not on the entire delegation.
The group added that many non-Jewish passengers were not wearing masks but were allowed to remain on the flight.
The group arrived in Frankfurt on Wednesday and were scheduled to board a connecting flight to Hungary to visit the kever of Reb Shayele in Krestiner for the yahrzeit.
Sources said the group was able to continue their journey to Hungary after they boarded a Vienna-bound plane and rode a bus from the Austrian capital towards Hungary.
