El Al Flights Canceled as Labor Crisis Escalates


El Al Airlines has canceled and rescheduled flights, and labor unions have threatened to widen the dispute between management and pilots to include the entire workforce.

Haaretz reports that El Al said it would offer people who cancel reservations or reschedule their flights because of disruption a full refund and impose no fees for the rest of November.

Apart from their concern about temporary employees, the workers committee is concerned that the introduction of Boeing 787s to El Al’s fleet will lead to layoffs because the advanced jets require less maintenance.
