1. My sister now learned her lesson the hard way... she won’t be taking this flight again lol. She texted me that she landed in ATH about 12 min before shabbos and was still taxiing so who knows when they made it to the gate but no other details so I assume she turned phone off.

2. They did not allow any passengers to stay behind in Canada. She tried and was told no.
Awful.
Really frustrating that they would go to ATH. Where are all the LY defenders??

No way that 747 could deplane with less than 12 minutes to shkia. I wonder what the halacha is in that case?

Shame they didn't let her deplane. Based on the Broadway show Come from Away, she would have had a great time. Just ask Rabbi Leivi Sudwak of Chabad of Edgware.

You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used to start a religious discussion.

I was in a different situation on a delta flight tlv to ny, they didn't let anyone deplane the black hats started piling up by the front exit they said whoever wants could leave, once you step your foot out theres no way back, luggage will stay on board.

My brother was on board. From what I heard - Rabbi Mendel Hendel, of Athens Chabad, arranged for food to be brought to the airport and a lounge reserved for them.

Have not and am about to embark on a 3 week honeymoon to Japan. I will put it onto the Kindle I got from the deal you posted earlier this week. Chazaq u'Baruch to R' Hendel of Athens Chabad.

Why didn't they flu the plane back to NY and take off again Motzei Shabbos? Or at leastet People off in Canada? Or lastly, land in city with Frum Jews like London etc? And in London they would still have time to leave the airport?...

bein hashmashos has some "leniencies" in such a situation, but better ask your rav. my rabbi always mentions that nowadays we have shomer shabbos yidden, but the shomer erev shabbos yidden are gone.

Maybe harder and more expensive to get a landing slot?
