Israel not on the map for Etihad Airways

Etihad Airways, the national airline of the United Arab Emirates, doesn’t fly to Israel.

In fact, the airline's online route map doesn’t even show that Israel exists.

The New York Post charged last week that the omission on the map is among several ways that Etihad discriminates against Israelis.

In response, Etihad issued a statement, saying "we do not discriminate in any way and welcome passengers of all faiths and religions, carrying valid documentation."

Etihad, however, offered no explanation for the online map, which does not identify Israel by name but names its neighbors, Jordan, Lebanon, Syria and Egypt.
