No. But the 777 includes the entire delegation etc.
The plan for the private jet was for Bibi and his wife alone, with the delegation flying separately
Ah...
He had some role in the offering part as well, when u leave government....., good for him.
Could you stop with bashing the "elite class"? He actually had a much higher paying job prior to joining the Trump administration.

I didn't bash and don't think there is anything wrong with taking a job when leaving government, I left those "........" in there so everyone can interpret the way they want, obviously you can by default chose the negative one. I ended with "good for him", I really do wish him all good.
Always praying for delayed baggage.

Topic change.

El Al will supposedly offer a 125% voucher for all cancelled flights.
I don't understand this.
If El Al raises their prices that wipes out the extra 25%.

For example, if I paid $1000 for a ticket and I get a voucher for $1250, by the time I redeem the voucher chances are the ticket prices will have gone up to approximately $1250 wiping out any benefit.

Am I missing something?
Thanks.

I personally hope the Rosenbergs hire a solid bean counter like Kirby only then can you start thinking about passenger experience, rows in the back and points program, without a financial plan there won’t be an airline at all. And a JV with a US airline will not hurt at all....DL ?

funniest part is, whoever put this together thought his name is Kenny  ???
If it's not free shipping it's not worth it.

Funniest part is, it is actually "Kenny" who is the real owner.

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

No. Yes.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!
