Re: If You Could Ask El Al Management One Question...
Only that they need to do a lot of editing to the transcript...
I think it's fair to say that if you haven't heard back by now they authorize you to publish as is..  ;D

Re: Best Pajamas in the Air!
Does EY EL AL only give PJs in 1st, or do they also give them in J (if you bring cookies or something  ;))

I'll be flying their TLV-LAX route and I think technically it's a "Business/First" cabin, so does that mean I get to try their infamous cardboard attire?
LY gives PJ only in F (i.e in the 777 and 747). They don't give them in J (nor in "business/first in the 787)

Re: El Al finally inaugurates in-flight WiFi I flew back and forth from TLV to LAX this week on LY's Dreamliner. I have to say I was positively surprised by the Wifi

Still showing up as beta testing so apparently free for everyone on flights to and from the US.

I had decent connection for the first 2.5 hours out of LAX, then went to sleep but I don't believe there is anything around Greenland, then ongoing since over UK (when I woke up)

I did a speedtest, below. Not sure how they will price this once it goes live officially.

Re: elal changed the date and location of my flight
What else could it have been?
A couple of weeks ago I called LY to try and book an award ticket to BRU. It was sold out so they said: why don't you go to AMS, "it's very close".. so with that in mind everything is possible  ;D

Re: ELAL Questions Master Thread
Flying El Al 787 from JFK to TLV in Premium Economy. Anyone know if Row 20 (last row in PE) is close to regular economy or is there a space in between? What seats would you suggest reserving? (2 people)
There is a wall between 20 and 21

Row 17 has slightly more space but you're right behind the bathroom.

It's about time! What took so long for them to get a hotel? Are they they busiest airport in the world without a hotel?
Agreed. Probably because it's not a huge hub for connections.

Re: Bangkok, Koh Samui, Singapore and Maldives TR Amazing TR.

I'm sorry but it's hard for me to write about it when no one can travel, when everyone (including me) has to cancel their trips etc.
I hear you. I look at it the other way.. it's dafka when I can't fly that I enjoy reading TRs.
Keep safe

Re: Israel opening schools for N-3 on Sunday...Would you send?
What area of Israel are you in? is it a hard hit area?
Tel Aviv.
My main issue is that I would expose my kid to 15 other kids + school's staff etc. Plus commuting etc.
So I don't think it's worth it at this stage, IMHO

Israel opening Zoos and parks.

On Thursday they will open Malls and markets.

In June hotels will reopen (but swimming pools will remain closed).

Re: Random airline-questions.
So I had booked an El-Al flight for my son's gap year (don't worry, I've sinced rebooked him on Delta), and ELAL canceled it today. Here is the weird part, if I log into their site, they only seemed to have canceled the outgoing leg (i.e. NYC-TLV) and not the return flight - can they do that?
They will cancel the return leg closer to time

if its public how does it work?

who gets to grab first? Rozenberg or Saphir?
There is a bidding process, whereby whoever bids for the larger amount of shares gets them.

According to the press rosenberg is happy to buy $100m worth of shares through the offering.

I don't believe Sapir was interested in taking part, as they wanted a private placement, which will not take place. That's also why Gurvitz said he won't take part in the bidding process. So it sounds like it's going to Rozenberg. But who knows

Re: Israel And The UAE Are Heading Towards Peace
Oman, Kuwait, KSA, Morocco, and possibly even Qatar amd Sudan.
Agreed on Oman, Kuwait, Sudan
KSA when MBS becomes king.
Qatar - strongly disagree

for those not following the back and forth can we have the the whole story in short?
if its to much for you @tavster maybe @Dan can put it in the new years news roundup!?
Long story short, we don't know yet who the new owner is.

We just know that LY has managed to raise the full amount they were looking for

Since Rosenberg's name doesn't show up on the registrar, as it seems that the shares are held through a bank, I believe we will have to wait for an announcement from Rozenberg himself, or whoever bought the shares.

September 16, 2020, 01:52:24 PM
So did they reach out to Dan or not?
Good question.
But in any event, the main priority right now is to manage the workforce, and especially the relationship with the pilots. Cost-cutting and workforce optimization is make or break at this point.

If the new owner manages it properly, then there is plenty of room to turn this airline around, IMHO, otherwise it's not worth wasting Dan's time

Re: Ex-TLV Routes and Flights Discussions
Will actually be a game changer for Muslim Hajj and Umrah.
Currently the route from Israel is often, a bus/taxi over one of the Jordanian border crossings then another very long bus ride or flight from Jordan to KSA.
Yes. That's something that former minister Ayoob Kara has been talking about for years.

Already back in 2017 he mentioned potential seasonal direct flights to KSA for Hajj

And in November 2019 he was already talking about Israelis being able to visit Gulf states shortly

Re: NY Koen group to buy Israir
But then OTOH from what I hear Eilat is stuck several decades behind Aqaba in what it has to offer. (And is pricier).
Eilat is garbage.
But there is a market for it and many Israelis can't be bothered to go elsewhere

October 14, 2020, 01:52:51 AM
At long last, appointment of new board (members) expected today. Will this be a dawn of a new era for LY?
Ive met Brodet a few times. I think he's the best person for the job. Put differently, if he doesn't manage to solve the current HR / culture issues within LY, no one else will, IMHO  :)

Re: El Al to Launch New CC in U.S.: Fly Card Preferred
Wow. Back when I flew LY, got upgraded over 90% of the time for 100 points.
They used to offer me to upgrade from J to F for 175 points. I always declined, and then they would upgrade me anyways.

Re: Mauritius or Seychelles With no less than 3 airlines now offering direct flights from TLV to SEZ, I thought it's worth revisiting the topic.

I've been to Mauritius and it's amazing - great hotel redemptions, and a great Chabad Shalia'h, which provided us with all the food / wine we needed, and we always managed to make a minyan when somehow needed to say Kadish (it was in December / high season).

Sadly Mauritius is still closed for the time being (they require 14-day in-room quarantine).

SEZ has no Marriott hotel besides the famous North Island, where certs can't be used. However there are a few Hiltons etc

Anyone been there lately? Any feedback? Thx!

Re: Ex-TLV Routes and Flights Discussions

At the bottom of the page you have the form 261/2004 to fill out.

Then there is another pdf with the list of enforcement bodies and respective emails.

I would send the form to the enforcement body and cc

Re: Ex-TLV Routes and Flights Discussions
just curious, why do you think there is demand?
People who requested a voucher received the original ticket value + 25%. So $1,000 becomes $1,250 etc

So both sellers and buyers have lots of room to make deals which will provides both sides with an incentive.

And for those who want their $1,000 cash back quickly, instead of waiting for LY forever, you sell the $1,000 credit voucher with $1,250 value and buyers (including TAs) will be happy to take it off their hands.
