Fair warning - Any PMs sent in response to forum posts are fair game for ridicule in public.

https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2017-01-09/the-best-and-worst-airlines-in-the-world

Kinda stupid that they call it a Best and Worst airline list and then go on to rank airlines based on just one data point.

Their only metric is delays. What a sad, poor excuse, for an article.

Still glad ElAl was shamed. They deserve every bit of scorn. What a pathetic excuse for an airline.

For some reason I have a hard time believing some of the stats mentioned here, I believe they are politically tilted.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used to start a religious discussion.

Same gold as every other time, they are just stereotyping her appearance as black, sounds racist to me.

The decision, by a chamber of seven judges, did not dispute that the denial of the parents’ request interfered with their religious freedom, but it emphasized that the need for social cohesion and integration trumped the family’s wishes. The court also noted that schools play “a special role in the process of social integration, particularly where children of foreign origin were concerned,” and that, as such, ensuring the girls’ “successful social integration according to local customs and mores” took precedence over religious concerns.
Time for religious Jews to take their heads out of the sand.  This stuff will head over to the US soon. The scary part is the far right and left almost converge on this issue.
