These flights seem oddly pretty empty I must say..


I already answered you. I'd like to see a picture of the United flight the same time. I beg you if you can PLEASE find me a seat on one of the El Al flights leaving NYC today to TLV. They are all OVERBOOKED!
The last 2 weeks of December are probably the least popular dates flying Ex-TLV in the entire year. Come Jan 1, and the flights are sold out once again. In addition to travel being slow ex-TLV, they even added flights from TLV this week to have more capacity from the US to TLV. This is typical fake-news, leaving out the details from all around....

I totally agree. Iíve flown a 2 am flight from Rome to TLV on Alitalia with 5 people on board. They add these flights when thereís high demand ex-TLX

Did you forgot that there is no way to know if these videos are indeed from NY. Doubtful.

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?
I flew out on Xmas Eve a few years ago and the airport was deserted, and as other has mentioned every year in Dec you can see saver space on UA

Maybe I should switch jobs and become a reporter and write articles on non-stories

So that after that you can change jobs and become an Amazon delivery person?

Probably not published anywhere...My dad just flew to Israel, young non-religious guy wanted to put his skateboard in overhead baggage compartment, even though it took up too much room.

The airline staff told him to remove it, he refused; they asked him to get ff the plane, he refused. They finally had to have everyone get off the plane, and then re-board without him.

Can you imagine if a similar story had been about a frum guy who didn't want to sit next to a woman?

Need to make sure this get to Israeli MSM ASAP.

Any video footage? Without that it's just a case of VOIDH!

I just flew Elal EWR-TLV on 12/26 and TLV-EWR on 12/30 and both flights didnít have one empty seat.

On that note- it was my first time flying LY in close to 20 years and I was very impressed with the both flight crews. I wasnít even yelled at once, which was somewhat of a disappointment.

There was also a chareidi man sitting in an aisle seat next to a woman and asking everyone if theyíd switch with him and nobody did. So he finally took his seat when it was time for takeoff. Didnít make a scene. I was surprised when I checked the news the following day that this incident wasnít reported by any news outlets.

Someone actually took out their cell phone to video, and flight crew told them to put it away.

Don't know if this was El Al, though.

How come you decided to fly LY after a 20 years break?

It was a short trip and I needed very specific flight times to maximize time on the ground and minimize time away from family and work. It also happened to be the cheapest.

Very wise comment, though that was in 2 directions so it's at least twice in 20 yrs...
Jokes aside, as noted in the past, most who bash the airline haven't even ever flown it.

Am I?

Though TBH I've also had very bad experience with IB, but IINM that was before they became part of IAG. Booked on them for a February flight.
