Why donít planes fly 700+ mph all the time?

Fuel costs offset any time gains.

I was on a packed DL 767-300 from AMS-JFK we were cruising at 680 MPH (maybe even more, have to check my pictures again) for most of the flight.

Before all the bash on how Elal handled this breaks loss;
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Air_France_Flight_66
https://blog.wandr.me/2017/10/af66-goose-bay-recovery-efforts/

And regarding comp - this can easily fall in "Beyond control" http://www.tourism-law.co.il/pdf/AviationServicesLawENG.pdf - every airlines claims this, every airline, not just Elal
See Europe where people have taken the airlines to court

Someone pointed out to me that they are likely flying mechanics in from JFK (on this 1008) and are hoping to fix it and fly back to JFK to do the flight tonight. Would be shocking if they can be ready to depart JFK at 11:50pm, though. But it's not officially delayed yet.

Actually just noticed that now. However, on elal.com it mistakenly says TLV to JFK...
