No, I'm implying that "let them go bankrupt!" is juvenile. We want them to improve, not disappear. Yitamu chato'im v'al chotim, and all that.

Going bankrupt is probably the best way elal could improve itself. Slash the debt, cut the the pension plans and fire the redundants. Seems like the best way forward for elal.

Somehow, based on the context, I don't think he meant it in that (constructive) sense. It was more like "let them go fly a kite, who cares".

Elal only cares about European customers who were affected by the strike! What good does this do for US based people who were affected?

Isn't this for all passengers who had a canceled ticket? They just want to limit the cost, so they're giving a free tik to Europe as a reward, but it's for e/o, not just Europeans.

I know! But Europeans who were cancelled still had dozens of other non stop airlines to take back to europe. Americans just had 2 UA flights and one delta flight per day to make up for elals cancellations. Plus Europeans basically are getting free tix to israel for under $200. But what good is that for US citizens? Of course they can fly NY to Israel and then get a RT to Europe and back to Israel and then come back to NY, but how many will do that?
