I wouldn't take any other lines,but the El Al. For the time being it is the most reliable from the security point of view, And that it is the best argument. Mandy

I always take my flights in el al coz i felt safe flying with this airlines, but i felt bad during my last trip on april 2015, on my to my distination, upon arrival we noticed that almost all of our luggages were forcely destroyed, everything were disarranged. well, we considered it already coz we constantly fly with this airline and that kind of proceedings/inspection is usual already, but its too bad & disgusting upon learning that some things from my luggage were missing & some other things were not belong to mine, were place instead to my luggage. This is very much horrible! we faithfully submitted our belongings for inspection but no assurance from the airline company has been given to their clients! they treated our baggages like a trash when in fact we paid for our tickets in the right amount.

Do NOT fly EL AL - here are 10 reasons why: I am an Israeli. In the last 10 years I fly ~150,000 miles every year. I am a senator in Star Alliance (LH, United) and Gold in British. it is the second time EL-AL approached me, asking to fly with them and giving me automatic Platinum frequent flyer, upgrade vouchers etc. I have a been a fool twice !!! Here are the 10 top reason NOT to fly EL AL: 1. If something goes wrong - the flight is delayed and you miss your connection - you are alone, do not expect any help from them 2. redeeming point is impossible - they will let you book a flight for point but will use multiple excuses to charge you twice the points 3. You want to upgrade with point or with their vouchers - you will find you need to purchase tickets that are as expensive as buying a business class. Otherwise - no upgrade is allowed 4. They have lounges only in very few place and they are opened only 2-3 hours before the flight - so if you have a long connection or want to arrive earlier to the airport and work in the lounge - not possible 5. They will of course not publish the opening hours 6. Check-in is available only 3 hours before the flight. If you come earlier to the airport - you need to wait 7. if you work on Friday abroad and want to return on Saturday - this is not possible - you will need to wait till lat night Saturday - at least 8. They do not take real care on frequent flyer travelers - being a Platinum I have called their customer service several time - they could not help me in any upgrade etc. saying that they need to earn more and thus they can not support me - well I wonder if there are many travelers that they can earn more than me. 9. Airplanes are old, entertainment facilities are poor 10. No other airline squeezes so many seats - it is impossible to seat comfortably - no space for the legs!!! There are many other alternatives to fly out / In to Israel - EL AL is your worse alternative

I am very surprised at the person claiming to be Israeli giving 10 reasons not to fly ElAl. I took elal in Dec. 2014 and arrived at the BenGurion at 6:30AM. My connecting flight on elal was not until 9:30PM. I was personally escorted to the King David lounge and greeted warmly. The lounge is open 24 hours with excellent food and drinks. The staff is kind and helpful. I never fly any other airline but elal if at all possible.
