It’s hard to know whom to feel worse for: the 17 Jewish passengers flying Ukraine’s Aerosvit Airlines who were stranded 19 hours in Kiev’s airport after their connecting flight to New York (from Tel Aviv, originally) was canceled; or the Aerosvit employees, who said passengers bum-rushed when they just couldn’t take it anymore.
Most amusing tidbit from the report: “Aerosvit’s representative in Israel, Shimon Mostovoy, was out of the office all day and failed to respond to reporters’ questions.” Two words: undisclosed location.

We take pride in our community of readers, and are thrilled that you choose to engage with us in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking.

All proceeds go to helping us bring you the ambitious journalism that brought you here in the first place.
I NEED TO BE HEARD! BUT I DONT WANT TO PAY.
