I am flying in/out of BOSTON on El Al soon.  I do not think there is seat back entertainment on their 767's. Anyone flown that route recently to confirm?  Do they have streaming on those planes (like they say on their website) and if so does it actually work?

Daughter just got back from Israel in Nov on the TLV-BOS flight. She just confirmed that in Y there is no seatback entertainment. There are small cathode-ray tube-type television monitors in the aisles but she said they were too small to see anything.  IIRC, in J, they provide iPads. She said the FAs didn't inform them of any ability to stream on their own devices.   Are you sure you have to fly on El Al??? :)

Yup- booked :). Wonder if the Nov flight was the Spanish leased flight? El Al's website and in-flight magazine mention streaming. I need to have faith......

No, neither her August nor her Nov flights was Spanish leased.  I suppose it's possible they fly more than one plane on that route. I just always figured it was the same 767 back and forth.
At least it's non stop. And at least the food is kosher. Maybe the IFE will pleasantly surprise?

I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

I flew BOS-TLV and it actually did have streaming -- so maybe the equipment isn't always the same?  This was over a year ago...

The funniest thing about this is El Al's slogan on their boarding pass. Did anyone ever notice?

If you're referring to the statement about departing on time, it's very common for airlines to mention on time departure and gate closing times on their BPs. I don't think that's their slogan in any way.

Just curious, noticed Elal had a flight LY21 at 11:30pm and then LY1 12:45am ex tlv. Why do they have 2 flights so close to each other? Is the LY21 a regular flight?
