El Al is bichlal not Shomer Shabbos. They're offices are open 24/7. They just "officially" don't fly on Shabbos which is true more than 99% of the time. But there can be exceptions....

They do have regularly scheduled flights which board on Shabbos, especially in the summer. But officially they don't FLY on Shabbos - when they think nobody is looking.

JFK was closed Thursday so LY7 diverted to EWR and returned on shabbos as LY 2

Once heard בשם Yankel Miller: ElAl definitely flies on Shabbos, as he once flew ElAl and asked for a Birchas Hamozen and it said בשבת אומרים רצה

Their point is that they don't have flights scheduled for Shabbos or first day Yomtov.

That doesn't make them Shomer Shabbos, but at least there's not the chillul hashem of scheduling flights by a Jewish owned airline for Shabbos.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!
