I'm in. The religious give Elal a large chunk of their business. This is the only way they will respect us.

Who else is in?

Before you jump in what did you take in consideration?
are you a frequent ElAl flyer?

Yes ... Platinum Fly card.
They lied to the Shomrey Shabbos and the pilot too. This is the only way they will apologize.
ELAL only "keeps" Shabbos because financially it pays to have the religious fly with them.
$$$ is the only language they talk.

Look at the video ... they used Rav Sorotskin who is their highest ranked passenger. The hold the plane for him!

I'll sign an El Al boycott, what they did was disgusting, well that is unless they are cheaper, then I'll fly them.

I would have joined your boycott, but unfortunately, I can't do that, since I've already been boycotting them for quite a number of years.

I think my suggestion might be more effective (with faster turnaround, though might require an out of pocket outlay). It will definitely be noticed much faster.

When did you see the other nonstop North America to TLV carriers offering cheaper fares than ELAL?

Not using QF points to fly J to TLV?
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

i generally avoided el al cause of the attitude. only flown once in j to ny and once from cdg-tlv.
going for a quick jaunt so finally booked j on 787-9 but want to sign the boycott. i guess i am comforted knowing my flight is on a sun eve so the chances of me not getting to israel on time for shabbos are slim to none.

Lol, and people wonder why boycotts have never worked and probably never will.
