El al flight arriving close to Shabbos - again
« Reply #75 on: November 18, 2018, 01:04:23 AM »
You know what.... I doesn't matter toning it down doesn't seem to be working.... I would say that shocking some people may be a good idea at this point...
+1

As long as it puts the facts the way they are (that ELAL doesn't care about Shabbos, and doesn't respect their paying customers, especially if they appear "chareidi"), and faults Shomrei Shabbos for booking/boarding those flights except in cases of true emergency.

On that note, while I am sure Rabbi Sorotzkin's intentions were good, wouldn't he have done better calling on everyone NOT TO BOARD THE FLIGHT, rather than taking steps to ensure that everyone can be accommodated for Shabbos wherever the plane might land?
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

It took 90 minutes until we finally hit the first drivel comment that I won't bother publishing. Not bad considering the post content.

Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

1) It "feels" Jewish/Israeli, they speak Hebrew etc.
2) People think they have better security.
3) They have the most direct flights
4) A lot of times they're the cheapest.

Pilot lying to the passengers is just unacceptable. Actually ridiculous. Full stop.

One thing to note, going back to the gate at 11:45 means the plane doesn't take off at all

@Dan you really wouldn't recommend the AC Thursday flight? What's the worst that could happen? If the flight is delayed >2 hours, you don't board. If it's less than that, even if you're stuck on the runway for three hours, you make it no problem.
Plus AC is not an operational mess like LY

In any event, do you think that if all Rabinical organizations would issue a ruling saying that it is forbidden to fly (transatlantic only?) on ELAL flights scheduled to land on Friday (or Erev Yomtov), it might make those flights uneconomical for ELAL?
And you think if Elal isn't mechalel shabbos, the employees will do less chilul shabbos at home?

Nobody claims Elal isn't Mechalel shabbos. Some consider it nice that they are respectful of shabbos enough not to blatantly fly on it.

For the first half I was certain you were going to say service. I guess you're unpredictable.

I would have allowed it and published a response that includes a recording of an authentic Yemenite pronunciation.

I don't think he's right and that this flight will make it happen, though I really wish ELAL finally feels the real pain as a result of customer abuse.
