I've spoken to them in private as well. Nobody seems to be able to fix what ails it and it's no surprise that they're losing money due to their problems.


do you really think this public bashing will help them? is it good to publicly bash a company in order to make them better?
what about all the people who will lose jobs bc of this?
less people might fly bc of what you wrote, so they might need less workers

anyone know why there is so much hate towards another Jewish company ?

Love can come from two places either, service or they love me.
in this case I get the feeling they hate me and service is really bad

Some airlines love negative publicity. Just ask United.

Whoever made the decision to fly to ATH instead of ZRH deserves to lose their job. They cost their airline many frum travelers who now know not to trust El Al Thursday flights because they won't be taken care of if they need it.

Wow. I guess one must become a Chief Rabbi first in order to come up with this logic.

Why don't you start by putting forth what YOU think is wrong with ELAL, and how YOU think they should correct it.

@Dan has been quite clear on what he thinks needs to be done.

I think they have a corporate DNA problem, and really don't see how anything could be fixed without addressing that first. That would probably require a competent board with strong willpower.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

maybe you are causing other Jewish people out of jobs.
less people will fly them, then they need less workers...
Interesting. I just flew with my young son that went to Israel the 1st time. We were flying on Elal and he asked me  naively "where are all the Jewish workers"
Maybe if they would hire some frum workers they would've solved both problems. We would feel  more like we r  helping a fellow Jew, and they would better understand and cater to our needs.

what about the other employees that will lose their job? like other flight attendants? employees at the airport ?
im talking about in general, not specifically the person who chose to land in ATH

Oy L'rasha, Oy L'shchaino?
Nobody's losing their job because of a blog post criticizing LYs decision to ruin people's Shabbos.
If they lose their job it will be because LY can't run a proper airline and refuses to listen to criticism.

If it hasnít happened till now then itís not gonna happen.
If youíre that worried about Jews losing their jobs try convincing them to cancel the planned flight school theyíre opening in Florida.

It's confusing to mix up this specific incident with the general dislike toward ElAl.
The parent-child analogy is obvious baloney because no (good) parent takes to the blogs to insult his child (see the OTD thread for more info). I love this blog and these forums but it's obvious that some people have a personal gripe/anger/frustration with the airline, that may or may not be rooted in good intentions, but the posts reflect accordingly.
There's the sugya of how to deal with large corporations who act against our own best wishes and another sugya of "hoche'ach tochia'ch" of how to tell off a fellow Jew for a misdeed. The two are obviously different, but can become confusing when we do this kind of stuff all day.

Some of the hate could be from frustration because their point system is so bad and nobody can figure out how to game them like the other airlines
