El al flight arriving close to Shabbos - again
« on: November 15, 2018, 11:53:00 PM »
Check out LY 2 and LY 8 arrival times in TLV tomorrow. Obviously due to the weather... wonder if there's any from people on board.

He should be fine. 2 hours is close but doable

According to Flight Aware, LY 8 is scheduled to arrive in TLV at 3:30pm. That would be a record breaking 7hr 45min!

My first reaction is that they never learn, but then I realized the source so I will reserve judgment until we see what really happens.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

Never learn what? There was severe weather. DL is landing in TLV about 8:30pm

Bechadrei is reporting that:

LY2 is diverting to Athens, landing at 2:45 pm with shabbos starting at 4:50 pm (instead of landing in TLV a half hour before shkiah). Approx 70 frum jews on board, many who switched from LY8. El Al has secured hotel rooms, and Rabbi Hendel of Chabad Athens is getting shabbos food and a sefer torah to the hotel. (What a chessed! No easy feat!)

LY8 is diverting to Rome, landing 3:00 pm, shabbos at 4:30. It's unknown how many frum jews are on that flight, most who were originally on it switched to LY2.
