Looks like they are proactively extending status by 12 months.
Both DW and me got extended without asking for it, or being notified
Yes, and here you go with the full details (in Hebrew though..)
seems like they also extending the expiration deadline for the actual points.

Looks highly professional with the typo in the CEO's name... ::)

Good grief, I sure hope the new mgmt. is a little more serious.  It's exactly this lack of attention to small details (among other things) that reflects the very root of the problem with this company, and many other Israeli companies.

My suggestion to the future CEO.

When you have a group of passengers who won't comply, you ask the pilot to land in the nearest airport, and hand those passengers to local authorities.. do that two - three times and see what happens

I would initiate a charge back were this to happen to me. (Not the landing, rather the lack of doing anything/adverse action).

I don't understand your point

If I paid for a flight with certain conditions and safety/health standards, I would expect full enforcement and those standards to be met.

I flew last week on UA, and 90% of economy was chareidi, and there was BH no issues at all. The vast majority of the passengers complied with the crew and all was smooth.

I can only think of two reasons why this may have been different:
1) The crew didn't handle the situation smartly, which may have incited the passengers to just ignore the rules.
2) The more likely reason.... Last week, there weren't more than a handful of teenagers flying because the permits were only issued from the 18th. Most men were grown discipline adults, many flying with their families. This week's flights were packed with teenager students. Apparently, there needs to be more awareness made to these teenagers, about priorities in such situations. (I thought the past year taught most people a lot about priorities in yiddishkeit... But apparently some still don't understand it) Many righteous Jews daven while seated when flying. And I think most adult passengers, know how to act in a respectful manner on a flight (even the ultra-orthodox).

Many ppl argue that this type of events, while rare, mostly happen on LY flights
