Why I refuse to fly El Al. I don't think the service or anything else is all that different. But the unreliability that I'll get to where I need to go when I need to get there. That I can't handle
IMHO that and the "service" stem from the same root cause, which is their corporate DNA. If one is service and customer oriented, they will do everything to make the client happy and get them to their destination aa close as possible to what the customer expects.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

Who says they didn't re-accommodate everyone? Between JFK and EWR, they can connect pretty much to everywhere they can connect through Boston (on better aircraft). Besides for the few who were actually flying to BOS as their destination (probably not more than 20% if I'm generous)

Do I understand correctly that they cancelled June 11 and June 13? Were these the ex-TLV or ex-BOS flights?
Any explanation?

So they really cancelled four flights?!
Presumably the load factor was so low that they just accommodated people on the flights to NYC. Not great for Boston folks.
Thanks

You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used to start a religious discussion.

Many of them here won't love LY anymore if their comms are cut....
Besides, LY under this new moron has little to do with the trying-to-improve El Al of the past few years. The name El Al is pretty much the only thing that's left of the airline. Won't be surprised to see him cancel some of the Dreamliner orders to cut costs....
