Maybe he's referring to the part where the Rav (I forget which one) went on the attack against secular Israelis/politicians.
Whyis that someone else's agenda? He is literally the head of the agudah.

Hate that the program was literally started with someone's agenda.

Nothing to do with "else" agenda, just didn't really seem necessary to bring that kind of politics to a siyum, especially since there were  thousands of modern orthodox/zionist people in attendance.

Lots of planes. I'd thought I had seen that it would be a no fly zone. Thst clearly was not the case.

THere are different levels of no fly. It apparently did not apply to commercial airliners if it existed at all.

That wasn't at the beginning. And he didn't rail against them, just that they should get the message and become religious. Whether or not that is the way to do it, I am not pretending to be knowledgeable and get involved, but he definitely didn't just say that they're garbage and have a nice day.

What about the BA 777 and the SAS A330?

To me this event was very disappointing to say the least. Long uninteresting speeches in freezing cold weather with no food and barely any drinks I wonder how people survived there for so long. They should get some Heimishe chevre to run the show...

weirdly I saw just UA ERJs and some A319/320s, and a single Porter Dash-8

Was just for unmanned aircraft.

There sure was a no-fly zone over the actual stadium. You could see all the planes banking away from the stadium airspace.

With regard to the cold weather, I'm not sure why that disappointed you. We're you expecting 65 degrees in January? How would the organizers control that exactly? We're you expecting food that wasn't advertised? Could you not bring your own food. Obviously, the quality of the speeches is subjective, but from what I've heard, most thought that at least a few of the speeches were inspiring/interesting.

No, some planes were flying right above, including that Lufthansa plane.
