  1. I haven’t found that to be correct. I fly pretty regularly, including this week, and was actually thinking that the old joke that El Al stands for “Every Landing Always Late” is not true!

  2. Really!! Does everyone else experience that? I actually fly pretty regularly, including this week, and we took off as scheduled. The thought flitted through my mind that the old joke that El Al stands for “Every Landing Always Late” is not true!

  3. They treat their customers like junk because they suffer no consequences. A lot like our elected officials. Small people have this mentality that they can only fly ElAl if they want to arrive alive. If they G-d forbid take any other airline, it will for sure be hijacked or crash and they will die. So ElAl is guaranteed to always have business. These are the children of those people who only voted for Roosevelt and every democrat since then. Total ignoramus’.

  4. If it is delayed unfortunately the passengers are part of the problem. Flew back this week – huge amounts of carryons (that are never taken out of bins), Bh kids galore, changing of seats is the norm – therefore continuous moving from place to place & of course superb security checks.
