I'm very confused about the agreement with Greece. Why only 600 Israelis per week?

Also what prevents me from flying to Athens, then wonder around Europe freely, and back to Israel through Athens / Crete / Corfu, without quarantine on the way back?
Limit the potential spread to 600 people? The real question is why the governments are wasting their time with a program that will have negligible impact on the economy. I guess the ministers kids want a vacay

Many countries in Europe are having passport checks on arriving Schengen flights, Greece in particular has many limits on arriving EU pax.

Hi.  I will be flying United BOS-EWR-TLV.
Will I check my luggage all the way through to TLV, or do I need to claim and re-check in EWR?

Only in that direction. If you're returning the same way, you'll need to re-check in Newark.

I wonder if @zow is coming back right away but as with all domestic connections, on the way back you need to pick up luggage and then send it on its way after you go through customs.

Actually, it’s DD, not, me who is flying.  And she is going one-way (new Olah). Sending her off in style. :)

Israir asking for landing slots

Main part of that article is the whining of ELAL pilots about allowing unfair competition by EY and EK with which they can't compete (blaming it on the KSA overflight approval to UAE only for Israeli aircraft (which politically works for them, not naming Israel - just allowing all flights to and from the UAE to use their airspace).
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

Israir 320 and El Al 737 vs Emirates 380/777 and Etihad 787 is a true David v Goliath fight.

LY doesn't even have a plane to fly over KSA if permission was granted  ::)
