I like the Rishon Letzion on the plane. I'm assuming all their planes have different names?

PS: I doubt it's named after the city like she says. She missed the whole point...

Correct
And yes, it is named after the city. I flew on the old version of Rishon Letzion just over a half a year ago. Was probably the oldest plane in their fleet. An old 747 purchased second hand from Singapore.
In the IFE, under El Al news, it said about how El Al will be taking delivery of their 772 aircrafts in 2007!

Quick Review: ELAL 787 Dreamliner USA Debut


Elal 7028
Newark (EWR) – Newark (EWR)
Tuesday, October 17
Depart: 9:00AM
Arrive: -
Duration: -
Aircraft: Boeing 787-9
Seat: STBY

Elal invited Agents, LY Staff and other dignitaries to welcome and tour the new 787 Dreamliner at EWR Airport. Event started with a brunch at the Art & Lounge which was very crowded and the food was gone when I showed up… - can’t review the food as it was special catered for the event and not the regular lounge stuff.
Each attendee got a Boarding Pass for Flight “LY7028” and headed over to TSA which only had the general line open - no Premium line was open at the time (not that it would have helped, we were all booked in Y class…)

At the gate there were more balloons, champagne and the big cake. The Israeli Consul General cut the ceremonial ribbon and made the Bracha Shehecheyanu (why not…)

The “pax” of flight LY7028 boarded the flight - tried each seat, up down sideways, sitting sleeping, took many pictures & selfies.

The end

"While the food was good, the highlight of meal service was its speed: within 80 minutes of takeoff, meal service was completed."

One of my favorite things about El Al. No extended meal times when everyone wants to sleep. Some airlines kill you with that.
