Ye. The one time we forgot about it they stood there unsure what to do & then they just waived us through.

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.

It was when they had the 747

777 is nothing special

(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.

the actual stewardess attitude. yes in business class.. are you possibly Israeli?  ;D ;)

  • Location: The value of a forum such as this one is not in that one can post a question and receive an answer, but in that the question has most likely been asked before, and the answer is available to him that will but only use the search function.
  • Programs: 1. Search on google. 2. Search in the right board of DDF with a general word or two. 3. Read the wiki. 4. Read the thread. 5. Ask away.

Yes, because the only reasonable explanation for a person's experience differing from yours must have been due to the fact that he was asleep or under the influence of alcohol or other substances.

No, not exactly. 1) I meant it in a light way. 2) Most people whether they voted or not above dont like The service they get from elal. I dont care to hate on them, I just dont fly them.
