The ELAL response in this case isn't anti-orthodox IMHO, it's PR/damage-control in a measured way.

All I was saying is, that ELAL sees the need to PR/damage-control a story circulating in the secular media but doesn't feel it needs to PR/damage-control a shabbos nightmare.

Do you think ELAL released a statement in response to the negative press given to them bt DD? Why not? they don't care about us. It is the feeling you get when you fly elal.

It's not that they don't care, it's that they see no benefit or need for a response. They have enough frum customers that will keep on flying with them regardless.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

And more secular will stop flying as a result of this story?

Utterly ridiculous, so much for journalistic integrity.

I'm more shocked about NBC. If you know anything about Elal other then the flag on the back of the plane, you'd know it can't be.

Why when Elal sends me a spam message about my previous mated status does it have to send it as a file to download , then only after downloading it is basically a link to click on something else....

I've flown ELAL in the past recent years because of price. Upgraded to premium economy and thank G-d. They have some of the smallest coach seats to Israel if I'm not mistaken. 

I love ELAL based on nostaliga alone but I'm not running to fly with them anytime soon unfortunately.
I don't fly international often at all, but i do fly within the us though. So that's what I would be comparing too.

 just flew elal on the new dreamliner, in ecconomy, and it was pretty decent service and comfort.
Much better then any United economy flights
