‘Occupied Palestinian Territory’ Removed From Delta Destinations
Following a press inquiry by The Jerusalem Post on Tuesday, Delta Airlines removed the word ‘Occupied’ from “Occupied Palestinian Territory” on its list of destinations in the Middle East.
A media relations official from the company said “the phrase was mistakenly posted to our web site and immediately removed when brought to our attention.”
It does not appear that the wording was intentionally used in order to attract customers who would not like to read the word “Israel” when booking a holiday, as Israel can clearly be seen in the list of destinations as well.
There is no operational airport in any of the “Palestinian territories” occupied or not.
