best line ever is

"But the real highlight of the flight was the service. Working first class were two young and energetic ladies Shanti and Nofar. They were incredibly professional, attentive, and friendly. On both of my flights the service is what stood out to me most about the EL AL experience."

It's exactly like the (famous?) joke about the dude who dreamed about visiting heaven (was boring) and hell (was fun), and then when he died and chose hell (was actually torture) he complained and they told him "before, you were a visitor; now you're an Oleh Chadash"...

I'd guess you don't know too many people that have flown LY premium cabin.
Not that he didn't get special treatment (honestly, although from a readers perspective I'd want to hear an objective report, as a company they'd be moronic not to make sure to treat him well), but many people that fly LY premium say the service is very good.
Who do you think you are fooling? You think you are going to pull a quick one on your Creator? Good luck with that.

So I have heard. I have also heard that they treat their real frequent flyers very well.

But their Matmid program is a different story, and I doubt that any kind of special treatment might change a review of that.

Now let's see Lucy's review of the Matmid program.

Huh?? What are you expecting him to review exactly?

And besides, El Al's redemption chart to most short-haul routes is far better than almost any *A or Skyteam chart for that region. To the US, perhaps they're a bit overpriced. But they aren't a US airline and their not necessarily trying to compete with the US programs. Also, El Al elites get far more FREE last minute upgrades based on empty space in J (same goes from J to F), than elites on the other airlines on this route.

(I hope I don't get banned from here for defending LY...)

I said above that LY treats their elites well.

However, the ridiculous YQ (if it can be called that - as unlike other airlines, I don't think it mirrors charges on revenue fares), and lack of partners for connections, are drawbacks that can't be ignored.
