that wouldn't surprise me, seems to make sense.
I flew that route in July 2005, one way, CAI-TLV, and the flight was maybe 60% full. It's a 73G that goes only twice a week, anyway. There is obvious political significance to the route, so downsizing to smaller aircraft makes sense.
Also, maybe frequencies should be increased? When there are only 2x per week, no flexibility, no one likes that.

Quoting Semsem (Thread starter): There is a possibility that Israir or Arkia will take it over with smaller aircraft.
smaller A/C and increased frequencies wouldnt be a bad idea.
Israelis love to travel abroad. Besides, Egypt ( Red Sea and Sinai) are very popular destinations for Israelis anyway. So, if the TLV-CAI route is provided with enhanced frequencies and more competitive pricing i m confident that it will turn profitable for any operator.
