Sick passenger on the plane

Took off a few hours later and headed to TLV

C/P from What'sapp.

This is not the first time we received an urgent call at Chabad from EL AL. When the Chabad office line rang for the 2nd time in a row with a US number I figured it must be urgent and answered. Elal, from Newark, NJ to Israel had made an emergency landing because an Israeli woman on the flight needed emergency care. Concerned passengers called since she was traveling alone and does not speak any English. I told them to give attending police our contact info and be in touch with us when she arrives at the hospital as we would need to go meet her. Incredibly a Chabad passenger, unrelated to this woman, decided to deplane & accompany this woman to hospital so she is not left alone. He was told he may be forfeiting his ticket to Israel but that certainly would not come in the way of true Ahavat Yisrael. Tears of pride at such a symbol of love for a fellow Jew! מי כעמך ישראל?!

This kind of Ahavas Yisroel is the meaning of "Mah zaro b'chayim, af hu b'chaim"

You'd think that the airline would perhaps make an exception considering the the circumstance. But it's all about the Benjamins.

So nice to see such nice stories.
Now let's see EL AL follow thru, if true.
Why wouldn't they? You make it sound like they can do no right. From what I see, although they don't run a tight ship, they treat their customers right with these type of things.

Waiting for the DDMS headline.
"Another week and another LY flight diverted" this time to Paris.
