Israeli Airline Sued Over Gender Bias Claim

A Holocaust survivor is suing Israel's national airline after she claims she'd to move seats because she's a woman.

Renee Rabinowitz is taking El Al to Ct over its seating policy, which she believes discriminates against females.

The 82-year-old says a flight attendant asked her to move from her seat following to an ultra-Orthodox man after he made the request because sitting following to her would breach Jewish law.

The Israel Religious Action Center, an advocacy grouping representing Ms Rabinowitz, says the company violated an Israeli ban on gender discrimination in the provision of public services.

Ct documents indicate that Ms Rabinowitz says she felt humiliated by having to move because she's a woman, and is seeking $17.000 in damages.

El Al says it'll reply to the claims in court.

The incident is said to have happened on a flight from Newark to Tel Aviv last year.
