Austrian Airlines has fired a flight attendant after she was accused of making a series of anti-Semitic remarks during a recent Vienna rally.
Austrian Airlines Flight Attendant Fired For Anti-Semitic Remarks
Christina Kohl was terminated from her position as an Austrian Airlines flight attendant after she led a crowd in chanting what many deemed anti-Semitic slogans at a recent far-right rally in Vienna.
Kohl is running for a seat on Vienna’s municipal council under the banner of former Austrian Vice Chancellor Heinz-Christian Strache. Strache was forced to resign in 2019 after being caught on video promising business contracts in exchange for political support to a woman who posed as the niece of a Russian oligarch. She was really a decoy to entrap Strache and he fell right into it, bringing the government down with him.
But time seems to heal political wounds and Strache is now re-engineered himself and is running under a an emerging far-right national party called Alliance for Austria (DAÖ).
At the rally, Kohl shouted:
- Soros must go!
- Rothschild must go!
- Rockefeller must go!
- Illuminati must go!

Her presence with Strache and her pretty face helped bring her instant notoriety…and scorn.
When Austrian Airlines caught wind of her remarks, they fired her. A spokesperson told the Alegemeiner her behavior was “inexcusable” and added:
“An employee of Austrian Airlines made public antisemitic statements as part of her political commitment.We are an international company that crosses borders in the context of its business purpose. Here, however, we have to draw a very clear line…
“Statements of this kind are in no way compatible with our company values. We have therefore taken appropriate measures to ensure that something like this does not happen again.”
So was she really an anti-semite or just a conspiracy nut? If you understand German, she elaborated on her positions during a 17-minute interview on OE24…
