El Al passengers stranded in Ukraine

http://www.israelnationalnews.com/News/News.aspx/255857

El Al passengers on Flight 2652 that was scheduled to take off Friday from Boryspil in Kiev to Ben Gurion Airport was delayed because of a technical problem.

As a result, the passengers will remain in a hotel in the Ukraine until Shabbat ends.

The flight was supposed to take off at 10:45 local time.

The passengers boarded the plane after a delay but as it taxied on the runway, a second malfunction became apparent and the takeoff was cancelled.

The passengers were asked to disembark. El Al apologized and said it would provide them with accommodations in Kiev.

Why didn't they just take off and divert to greece :)

Elal has been doing this to people for years. Usually it doesn't make the news since they're Arabs.

Why definitely? Totally makes sense that it's exactly what happened.

YWN is reliably unreliable.
And this story does not make sense as written.

What could that girl have possibly done to deserve that? Said something stupid?

That for the other side of the story to answer, not us.

And even if every detail is true (which is hard to believe), it's not very clever to answer a security agent that the question they are asking is irrelevant. Answering stupidly, raises red flags.
Tip: When asked if you have something sharp or something that can look like an explosive in your baggage, don't ever be the wise guy who answers sarcastically "yeeah... Suuuure I do". It's not worth it! You have no idea how they can treat an "innocent yeshiva bocher/Bais Yakov girl"

Nothing to do with El Al
UA has had more saver award in J than I've ever seen in a single week. It all ends next week. NYC to TLV this week, you weren't able to find a vacant seat. How do they explain that?

These flights seem oddly pretty empty I must say..
