The poll results look exactly like what it is, El Al giving everyone the middle finger.

The attitude is what is the biggest turn off to ELAL IMO + the fact that the seats arent amazing either. The Delta product is probably best from all in J.
(disclaimer: i dislike ELAL as much as the next guy and i dont have any hatred at all towards and groups as a whole,im just being a realist)
 im not sure what attitude your referring to. unless you are referring to phone reps or the like in which case it has no significance here the same way your IB experience isn't rated lower due to the less then dumb agents. I have flown them myself as well as spoken to many, many others about this and never heard of any attitude on the actual plane other then maybe occasionally to Hasidic,rabble rousing, attitude giving, DYKWIA scumbags who deserve to be put in their place sometimes in which case i am happy with ELAL actually having the lack of business etiquette to say something as opposed to the others who suck up the crap that they are doled out daily by said scumbags.

In FRA they asked my wife to go behind a curtain and told her to raise her shaitel so they can check if there's anything hidden there.

This is insane and ridiculous.
My wife never wants to fly ElAl again.

I'm not 100% sure whether this is ElAl's fault or not, but I think ElAl handles the security in FRA on their own.

For example?
I never had it in any other place.
Besides,  you'd expect from an Israeli airline not to freak out about a shaitel.

At least I appreciate ElAl they still let me on board after giving them a mouth full of $#!& and throwing tantrums.
Any US airline would've called the police and deny me boarding because 'the pilot is not comfortable flying with you on board'.

I'm pretty sure Elal has their own security pre-flight around the whole world.
