Can someone please fix the spelling error in the title? It's really bothering me.

Been there done that....

I was on a NY -TLV flight over 10 tears ago when we were diverted mid flight to Budapest Hungary because of a strike at Ben-Gurion...

You can fix it by adding many posts, eventually you won't even see the title, it's a form of therapy (as is bashing ELAL  ;D)

This is different. That might have been LLBG strike, whereas this is an ongoing problem ELAL is having with their Pilot Union.

What a shame that DL cancelled their second JFK-TLV flight, rather than made it a daily flight.

Just try to practice better focusing. Focus on the content, ignore the title. You could maybe leverage that and implement that during davening...

If only the content were something worth focusing on. Good point about davening though.

Clicked on the first link and read the 'Details'.  Gotta love how some poor Israeli tried to draft a statement in English.  Either that or they Google Translated.  Either way, it's horrendous...

Hopefully we'll get a resolution one way or another since right now ELAL is headed towards death by a thousand cuts....

Hey Dan.
I'm shocked that you are so clueless about what's going on regarding these leased planes and El Al's pilots.

In short, EL AL has a long dispute with its pilot union and it has been getting nasty over the last few years. Pilots are doing crazy things in order to gain leverage. For instant pilots often cancel the last minute leaving Elal stuck with paying more for their (co worker) friends in order to fly their planes resulting in all pilots secretly collaborating to make more money etc etc - real crazy Jewish shtick and fighting back and forth.

So El Al tried to fight back with these leased planes that are not officially operated by LY and therefore they can use other pilots which are not in union..

Bottom line, please do your research and you'll see that it's not so simple as you described it in the DD post.
