Nothing, not even the regular FR24 tweets about diversions and recovery
Pretty bizarre.

Weird that this got no blogger coverage.

Not exactly a blog, though it was discussed here - http://www.airliners.net/forum/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=1383665

Just curious, is this really a major story, or is it just interesting to us because it was on El Al flying between NYC and TLV and many of us knew people on board?
IIRC, the AF66 story didn't get coverage on this blog, and nor did the diverted UP flight on the way to Kiev get reported here (probably because it wasn't NYC bound)

I don't run an aviation blog. I run a US based deals/miles blog targeted to Orthodox Jews and limit the scope of postings to what I think they'll find interesting.

Lots of other blogs cover all aviation incidents.

Daily diversions to remote airports requiring a ferry flight to pick up the pax?
No.

Except for the posts where you answer in the comment section that you posted it because it is your blog etc. :P
You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used to start a religious discussion.

Thats one of the reason it took time, its freezing cold and limited service, so the transfer took longer then planned

Another high arctic Canadian diversion - https://www.flightradar24.com/blog/lx40-a-new-engine-in-iqaluit/ - I believe they only waited 4 hours as the timing was around when the European departures where goign to head back to Europe so they canceled a flight from NY and send it to rescue, whereas Elal LY8 landed in middle of night and they didnt have an acft/crew available
