16h45 for the outbound flight, 17h45 for the return flight to Israel. Passengers will be able to buy tickets for the trial flights.

El Al will use its new Dreamliner planes to test the route during the second quarter of 2020, and they will be the first in history to fly non-stop from Ben Gurion Airport to Australia and back.

This goes over Somalia instead of turning east earlier over the gulf of Aden. That's a small tweak. Other than that I don't see an issue

You'd think elal knows that, and they figured it out before announcing such a route

What exact is the test for?
To see if people will fill up 2 flights? Will that prove anything?
I'm assuming they mean 2 RT flights?
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

Interview with CEO points to testing the economic viability,  having 2 crews instead of 1 etc, if people will be filling to purchase tickets, and people's ability to tolerate such a long flight.

2 Return flights 10 days apart

Doesn't make sure sense, I agree

Aren't these things able to be done via research?

Maybe they're trying to figure out the ratio of non-Jewish to Jewish demand (and within the Jewish market Shomrei Shabbos to non Shomrei Shabbos) and don't think this can be done other than with actual experience.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!
