Delta Air Lines does not discriminate nor do we condone discrimination against any of our customers in regards to age, race, nationality, religion, or gender.Good.
Delta does not operate service to Saudi Arabia and does not codeshare with any airline that serves that country. Delta does not intend to codeshare or share reciprocal benefits, such as frequent flier benefits, with Saudi Arabian Airlines, which we have confirmed with SkyTeam, an Amsterdam-based 14-member global airline alliance.
Delta’s only agreement with Saudi Arabian Airlines is a standard industry interline agreement, which allows passengers to book tickets on multiple carriers, similar to the standard interline agreements American Airlines, US Airways and Alaska Airlines have with Saudi Arabian Airlines.
All of the three global airline alliances – Star, which includes United Airlines; oneworld, which includes American Airlines, and SkyTeam, which includes Delta – have members that fly to Saudi Arabia and are subject to that country’s rules governing entry.
But, the fact remains, until about five years ago, the "Kingdom" of Saudi Arabia proudly proclaimed, on their official website, that "Jewish People" were not allowed in their country. Here's a screen shot:
I believe this is still the law in Saudi Arabia, though it is no longer explicitly declared on the nation's website.
Delta entered into this union through their Sky Team affiliate.
SkyTeam is an airline alliance [via wiki] with its centralised management team, SkyTeam Central, based at the World Trade Center Schiphol Airport on the grounds of Amsterdam Airport Schiphol in Haarlemmermeer, Netherlands. SkyTeam was founded in 2000 by Aeroméxico, Air France, Delta Air Lines and Korean Air – the last of the three airline alliances to be formed – but has grown to become second largest airline alliance in the world (in passenger number terms and members), behind Star Alliance and ahead of Oneworld. The alliance currently consists of thirteen carriers from four continents, with the slogan “Caring more about you”. SkyTeam also operates a cargo alliance called SkyTeam Cargo. As of October 2010[update], the alliance and its members have a total workforce of 316,445.
In 2004, the alliance had the biggest expansion when Continental Airlines, KLM and Northwest Airlines joined simultaneously as full members. In 2010, the alliance celebrated its 10th anniversary with the introduction of a SkyTeam livery, the joining of and upgrading of status 4 airlines, followed by the announcements of Aerolíneas Argentinas, China Airlines, Garuda Indonesia to become full members.
In January 2011, SkyTeam announced that Saudi Arabian Airlines and Middle East Airlines will also join SkyTeam in 2012.
The following appeared on the official website of the Saudi Supreme Commission for Tourism in February 2004. The site says the policy of the Saudi Arabian government is to deny visas to "Jewish People." After this anti-Semitic language was discovered and publicized by the media and Congressman Anthony Weiner, the Saudi government removed the offensive language claiming that it was a "mistake." Rep. Weiner noted that the Saudi record of anti-Semitism suggests otherwise and subsequently sponsored a bill that would control the distribution of visas to Saudi citizens until the President certifies that the Saudis do not discriminate on the basis of religious affiliation or heritage when issuing visas.
===" Visas will not be issued for the following groups of people:
- An Israeli passport holder or a passport that has an Israeli arrival/departure stamp.
- Those who don't abide by the Saudi traditions concerning appearance and behaviors. Those under the influence of alcohol will not be permitted into the Kingdom.
- There are certain regulations for pilgrims and you should contact the consulate for more information.
- Jewish People. "===
I have "visited" four Arab countries without a Passport or a Visa... ( Twice each !).
What bothers me, is the fact that more then 600 rich Saudi ' Princes and Processes ' are coming to Israel annually for medical treatments of their limping dicks and virginity restorations !...
Some are here because of fertility problems, Mongrels with a fucked-up DNA, or just "Picasso" faces which no Burka can cover!...
I'm curious to know if the Doctors are using the good services of "The Sperm Bank" in Afula for the treatments...
Glad to hear this.
