Driving past EWR this afternoon was surreal. Not one takeoff or landing. About a mile away I spotted one aircraft approaching EWR for landing.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

All flights to Israel temporary halted.

I dont get the difficulty of forcing people into hotels when they arrive. How do people slip through their fingers?

From what I understand there was no legal framework in place to force people into hotels.

Also - they want to force travellers to pay for their quarantine. In order to do this - passengers need to agree in advance and sign accordingly

Cabinet Approves Emergency Regulations Regarding Quarantne for Persons Returning from Abroad

(Communicated by the Prime Minister's Office, the Finance Ministry and the Health Ministry)

The Cabinet, today (Sunday, 12 April 2020), by video conference, approved emergency regulations on quarantine by the state.

It was decided that all persons returning from abroad will, upon their return to Israel, be sent to quarantine by the state at designated hotels. In exceptional cases, the Health Ministry Director General, in consultation with GOC Home Front Command, shall have the authority to allow a person returning from abroad to be quarantined elsewhere for health or humanitarian reasons, or in other special circumstances, according to conditions that will be determined.

It was also decided to extend the validity of the regulations until 22 April 2020.

My flight was changed by 12 hours.
Is that considered a significant schedule change that requires them to refund?

"On April 3, the Department of Transportation said it has been receiving “an increasing number of complaints” about the subject, and it issued a statement explaining that “U.S. and foreign airlines remain obligated to provide a prompt refund to passengers for flights to, within, or from the United States when the carrier cancels the passenger’s scheduled flight or makes a significant schedule change and the passenger chooses not to accept the alternative.”
Anyone know what's considered a "significant schedule change" that the DoT requires a refund?  My Air Canada CAN-US flight was changed by 12 hours from Sunday evening to Sunday morning. (They are not canceling flight)
Common sense is not common enough

LY will lay off a quarter of its pilots, with total job cuts rising to 2,000, as part of an efficiency plan drawn up to receive government-backed loans, according to a report of the expected plan in TheMarker, which didn’t cite sources.

LY prepared plan over weekend with lender Discount Bank, will present it to Finance Ministry for approval Sunday or Monday
