Do you have contact info? Can't find him on Google.
718-437-1977/888-662-8623
Or you can call his Son Ari who operates out of Lakewood 732-367-6683 (same company, but they're kinda run independently)

Hard times in the music biz?
:) I think he might be in business about as long as the "other" MBD :) His name is Moshe Boyer, so it's Moshe Boyer Delivery

I think OP disagrees with all of that and that it absolutely is what the thread is about.
OP asked why so much hate towards a Jewish company, not whether ElAl is making smart business decisions or not

Check what I quoted
You quoted the last (bolded) part of this
So what you're saying is, let ElAl run their business the way they want to, let @Dan run his business the way he wants to, and let everyone decide whom they're giving their business too. I don't think anybody disagrees on any of that, I'm also pretty sure this isn't what this thread is about
My understanding is that you do disagree with something I said there, I'm wondering which part it is that you disagree with

Really?
Which of these four do you disagree with?
  • Let ElAl run their business the way they want to
  • Let @Dan run his business the way he wants to
  • Let everyone decide whom they're giving their business to
  • This thread isn't about whether to fly ElAl or following Dan's blog

All ElAl has to do is run a sale and all the hypocrites will flock to them. Standards go out the window when money is involved.  :)
Last 3 times I flew to Israel I used ElAl, since they were by far cheaper than anyone else ($200+, one of them was with the Great Glitch of 2012 :) ). Doesn't mean that they're a great airline, just means that I value my money more than their shortcomings. I still wouldn't trust them with anything religious more than any other airline "because their Jewish", I also won't use them "because their Jewish".

Every biz and culture is run differently here in Israel with no competition and having the niche that they do unless there's a cheirum against them then they will operate however they want and that's an Israeli mentality if I'm making money why change or give more then I need to.
Dan isn't hating on them just reporting it and giving his views and opionions.
 At end of day w/o the elal price mistake dd would never be what it is today (most posts were random Amazon deals and ways to use ba miles nothing so eye popping and rare flight deals) that deal put him on the map and got him the same Jewish niche elal has. From there the posts increased and interest  in the site really took off bc e/o was looking for that next great deal
So what you're saying is, let ElAl run their business the way they want to, let @Dan run his business the way he wants to, and let everyone decide whom they're giving their business to. I don't think anybody disagrees on any of that, I'm also pretty sure this isn't what this thread is about

OP has a very good point. The ad nauseum hate here towards ElAl is both irrational and unjustified, much like the hate was towards the ex United CEO which was just plain stupid.
I don't see where @Dan has "hated" on ElAl, definitely not ad naseum, he's reporting a story where ElAl messed up and lost the trust of their clients
No exactly my point they have the clientele and they keep coming so why do more than they have to.
It's not a matter of not doing more than what they have to for their clientele (BTW that's something every business should be doing, doing just enough to satisfy your clients is an easy way for a competitor to steal them), they gained the trust of their clientele and just lost it, any loss of revenue or jobs is solely on them. @Dan is just making sure that people don't just blindly jump to fly ElAl "because they're a Jewish company" or "because they don't fly on Shabbos", since they aren't and they do...

Elal has the Jewish niche the people who 1. Don't know better 2. And the people who are into supporting a Jewish / Israeli company. Kind of like a certain blog site .
And this story goes to prove that they're not interested in said Jewish niche, it also proves that they're not acting Jewish and there's no reason for people looking for a "Jewish airline" to use them

I wonder if you secure a site with https if that slows down the site?
Why would it? The browser simply confirms that the server has a certificate. Even if fetching the certificate takes time, it should be absolutely minimal

Destination Guides And Trip Planning / Re: Cleveland Master Thread

I'm planning on driving down to Cleveland from Lakewood, NJ next week Motzei Shabbos and be there for a couple of hours (going to visit someone at the Bikur Cholim in Cleveland Heights) and drive back. What time are the Minyanim Shachris in the area? Best place to get Breakfast and Lunch?
