I'm very well aware that El Al doesn't have any scheduled flights on Shabbos. Just curious if anyone knows more info on what these can be. Are they "ferry flights" being flown empty to TLV to operate M"S flights (which would be a serious halacha concern for a frum passenger flying M"S CMIIW)?

It is known that elal is not a homer shabbos. They may not have flights scheduled to operate on shabbos but everything and anything else they do does operate on shabbos.  There are a handful of people that don't fly elal for this reason alone.

The first 3 were narrow-body (737). Quite sure the 4th was wide-body (either 767 or 777)
Elal has no more 767 in their fleet

Weird, considering they had one delivered as recent as 2015, yet they still operate 747s delivered in the 90s

could the wide-body have been the 747 freighter?

Hopefully both!
Not like I'm flying AA.

AT has many flights from the East Coast and no US carriers seem to pick up even a single route. AT even has 2 daily from JFK.

AC has a route [to CMN] running for some time.
Always praying for delayed baggage.

It's an interesting route.
Only JFK is daily, and AC flies from YUL, not YYZ.

How can you tell?
on the app the cn-txa is marked as an a321-251NX as opposed to a321-251N so I checked the delivery dates of the aircraft and the CN-TXA is marked as brand new
