The plane was a publicly opened flight or just for dignitaries and important people and media personal?

Not public

Will this open the possibility of Malaysia allowing SQ to fly to TLV?
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

I actually got the impression that Etihad will be (would be a nice use of AA or their miles).  But whoever goes first, I guess that would be the one (although surely the fanfare on the Etihad flight would be "richer."

QR Qsuites via AMM is still a great option for 70K AA from the US

I have no doubt both airlines will launch
Just in terms of process, Israir already reached out to both Israel and UAE for slots, and I havent heard of ethiad asking for slots yet, but I might have missed it.

We're talking about TLV origin here, but indeed it is.
