Flying Motzei Y"K EWR to TLV can anyone confirm if El Al lets you check in before YK and if yes how early?

Online they mention it when flying from TLV, the Rep didnt know anything about it and just told me its 24 hours and I should be there 4 hours before the flight...
I was able to check in this morning 36 hours before the flight

I once slept on a airplane floor, interesting experience.

I personally rather a day flight, I can function like a human being and read or watch stuff or use my phone and sleep at the destination.

The one situation where I dislike, is flying into LAX and arriving at night. Just a big pain in the butt to get to a hotel near airport (Hyatt lax is nice) and get a car next morning .

I've done this multiple times at sfo and enjoyed it.. anything involving lax gives me creeps
This flight is 14 hours. It's fast and night. No easy out of that. They switched the departure to 1130 from 130, which means they try to put you to bed at 6 pm lax time.

Been there done that. Doesn't work for anyone that doesn't like water beds

Halachikly ok to drink the mevushal wine in business class?  They did show us a closed bottle of mevushal but then brought it back to the galley and served wine in glasses. All that  confirms is that they do have access to mevushal wine on board but what is to stop them from being מחליף either if they run low on mevushal wine (some of the passengers were taking double and triple helpings) or an honest mistake since they are handling so many passengers requests at the same time and donít have a genuine chashivus for the inyan?

I see lots of people drinking it. Is there something Iím missing?

You can ask them to open the bottle in front of you, and can even ask them to open the bottle yourself

Asked them if they had a closed bottle they could bring. They said ďthe bottle WAS closed; we showed it to him before we served glasses of wineĒ (pointing to a frum guy two seats ahead)

Does Elal offer bassinet seat in Business on 787? Seat guru shows seat 1k/9k as a bassinet seat. Anyone ever tried it?
