Britain - EasyJet apologize for 'trivialising the genocidal massacre of Jews' in their in-flight magazine


EasyJet withdrew all copies of its in-flight magazine after it published pictures of designer-clad models posing in Berlin's Field of Stelae Holocaust Memorial which commemorates the six million Jewish victims of Nazi genocide.

After Jewish campaigners accused the airline of 'trivialising the genocidal massacre of Jews', easyJet withdrew all copies - estimated at 250,000 - and issued a 'profuse apology'.

Apology: easyJet have now withdrawn all copies of the magazine and said 'no offence was meant'

'The magazine is produced by INK, an external publishing house, and easyJet were not aware of the images until they appeared in print.
