A district court in Frankfurt, Germany, has ruled in favor of Kuwait Airways in a discrimination case brought by an Israeli passenger who was barred from boarding his flight due to his nationality.

In its ruling, the Frankfurt court noted that Kuwait bans all of its citizens and companies from doing business with Israelis. The court stated that while it didn’t evaluate whether “this law makes sense,” the airline would have risked repercussions that were “not reasonable”—such as such as fines or prison time for employees—for violating the Kuwaiti statute, The Associated Press reported.
