Gaza, ALRAY - British Airways apologised for an in-flight map tagged with the words “Palestinian Territories” on a part of pre-1948 Palestine.

A Jewish passenger noticed airline of the image which appeared on flights between Heathrow and Israel, the UK-based The Independent reported.

British Airways contacted the manufacturer and requested that the reference be removed as soon as possible. However, in an email British Airways customer liaison executive Karen Stobbs told the passenger that the work would be completed by December 2013.

“I can only apologise that this isn't an immediate action,” said Ms Stobbs.

A British airways spokesperson said “The phrase appears on an inflight map system installed on a small number of our aircraft.

“We apologise for any offence caused.”
