More comfortable than angle flat seats.
Will they have a usable premium product so the PM won't need to sleep on the floor?

+1. Needs to be done smartly and PC, but it can be done.

Indeed. Changes need to come gradually and in a well thought out way. Hopefully, there will be a corporate DNA change that will make this an airline I would want to fly.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

I've been on 777 F more times that I can count, and can definitely say that the seats are more comfortable that the floor  ???

Must be some kind of meshigass

Israeli law would be an impediment to an offical policy of separate seating.

There's only so much you can do to keep Halacha in a global business without using various loopholes. He doesn't shut his nursing homes down on shabbos.

There is nothing to be ashamed of, trying to cater to orthodox passengers, they make a up a big portion of their business.

Wow. I'd love to interview him.

U should do it, everyone can rewrite your article. They will anyways mess around with the wording... You shall minus we'll get it first hand!

The monsey bus had/has a mechitza on the bus. (picture huge tabelcloth hanging in the middle)
There was a while back a terrible story on the very same bus ודי לחכימא

Im not expecting that, but will be nice if they can cater to a huge portion of their business.

BTW, the floor is pretty comfortable, in back of the back row seats there is a space, tried it sometimes when in Y, usally takes FA's some time to  nudge to move.

Contrary to what was filed this morning at the tel aviv stock exchange, Globes reports that LY will restart service to NY, London, Paris, on October 12

being reported that Jason Greenblat will be taking a director position in the new ELA, they are hoping to make use of his relations around the world.
