German airline Lufthansa faced backlash on Tuesday over a statement that it released attempting to explain why a large number of Jews had been expelled from a recent flight.

Multiple Jewish organizations say more than 100 Jewish passengers who had traveled from New York City to Germany last week were not allowed to board their connection to Budapest.

“The travelers say all of the identifiably Orthodox Jews were prevented from boarding a connecting flight in Frankfurt, Germany, because a group of passengers had allegedly not complied with the German national carrier’s mask regulations on the first leg of the flight,” The Times of Israel reported. “The passengers were also banned from purchasing another ticket to Budapest for 24 hours.”
