As of March 1st, there is no inventory in F class on the TLV-HKG route.
Why would they do that if they only start flying the 787 on the 18th?

That's not the airline we're all familiar with.
I couldn't agree more.. except the part about the crew in J, which has always been top notch IMHO

I think his review is spot-on. El Al's food is usually pretty good in Business (excellent in F) but lacks proper presentation. Service in the premium cabins is almost always very good.

Unless you order the SKML, in which case it's the same old garbage, no?

No I just flew with them on the 747 in Business, service was fine and the food was more and better then the regular skml meal in economy.

And it goes beyond LY as they own Borenstein.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

NO! I just reconfirmed again with one of my clients who flies El Al business class multiple times every year for a few decades already, and he told me that although the regular meal looks a bit fresher and better, the SKML in business is still much better than the SKML in economy (and he's flown economy plenty too)

I'm not asking about the SKML in Y.
I'm asking what is the difference between the LY SKML in J and the UA KSML in J. Pics please.

ElAl follows all the blogs. Maybe they made sure he'll have a good experience...?

But he didn't post an exact date that he's flying in advance of his trip, IINM.

Shame that LY has no way to lookup his name.
Oh wait...
