Topic Wiki

This is a thread to post where you are right now.

If you couldn't read the title and decided to just click it.



For easy reference, here’s Wikipedia’s list of airport codes. The list is too long for one article, so you have to click on the letter that the code begins with to get a list of airports that start with that letter.

Dan is having a suspicious amount of interaction with El Al. If there is an announcement that an anonymous person bought the company, I'll put all my money on...

TLV airport is such a pain, though it's not LYs fault. One of the worst outbound airports in the world.

Got dinged for a scratch by Hertz, that should be a fun claim.

In-flight service was passable, nothing like the outbound.

KDL food is a 4.
Hamasbia food onboard is a 1. Was very jealous of the regular kosher meal. LY must find another mehadrin vendor IMHO. Or bring it in-house.

You need to pay the guy a few extra shekel upfront to mark it as “scratched”.

Airports in Europe as becoming equally mediocre. Got fresh reports pointing to crazy lines.

Regarding KDL food, did you get mehadrin food or you're referring to the broader selection there? For those who don't eat mehadrin the food is great, both in KDL and on board, IMHO

There was nobody to talk to. Massive line with one measly agent who said all the scratches are marked.

Ate the regular KDL food, some pizza, sabich, and banana cake.  I wouldn't call it great, but it was certainly edible, which is more than can be said for the Hamasbia meals.

Usually they have a broader selection of fresh salads, pitta, couscous + sides, good cakes. While i wouldn't have minded a good steak, i definitely prefer eating onboard

1. Security check line, very quick for J.
2. Checkin line, not bad for J.
That's all fine.

3. Then all of our bags are duffels, so there's another long line for that, with swabbing, passport scanning, and loading, which is slow as molasses and like nothing I've seen elsewhere.

 4. Actual airport security line, shorter than expected. But makes you wish for precheck and not having to remove all the kids tablets, etc.

5. Outbound immigration gates, not compatible with strollers/carseats, so sent to a long line for that, and then cursed out for bringing the whole family there (as directed) instead of splitting up.

6. Boarding is then all over the place, and you're forced to throw away your liquids before a 12 hour flight when a bottle of ice water would have been most useful.

Just so much red tape...

AFAIK that's a US security requirement rather than an Israeli thing.  And IME (not LY) not strongly enforced (I.e. If it's in your bag and no one sees it, it will pass. You're just asked if you have liquids and told to discard).

Again, this isn't on LY. It's on Natbag. If liquids were banned in general this wouldn't be an issue.
Also I have been searched and would rather not be on a list.
