so terminal 4 at JFK is a very intresting one in many asspects
but my question is with all the Israeli security for LY and 6H how are there so many airlnes that are not necessarily pro israel located near if not right next to these airlines.
i dont want this to be too political but the airlines that im talking about are
Saudi Arabian Airlines with 2X weekly
Kuwait Airlines with Daily service
Etihad Airways with Daily service
Emirates with 3X daily
Pakistan International Airlines with Daily service
im not sure about those figures but thats about
5 a day and another 5 a week
and LY with 3 to 6 a day and Israir with 3 to 4 a week how does security handle it
and often i see these planes parked next to an LY or 6H plane
are there conflicts between the airlines?

and please dont bash me or any of the countries or airlines

This is no different to many other European airports where many of these airlines would also co-exist.

But the answer is, of course there isn't. What sort of trouble would you expect??

Generally nothing happens. But El Al, Israir, and Egyptair flights are generally parked in a different area than KU or SV. Not the case with the other three.

Does this count?  Wink

PIA and Kuwait don't have daily flights into JFK.

Quoting A380US (Thread starter):
LY with 3 to 6 a day

El Al currently has 8xweekly flights:

Thursday, Monday, Wednesday (LY7)
Sunday, Tuesday (LY7)
Thursday (LY11)
Wednesday (LY11)
Sunday (LY1)

I have flown in and out of Terminal 4 six times however only twice have I flown in and out of Concourse B which is where El Al and Israir usually park.

You will notice that both Israir and El Al aircraft spend a considerable amount of time on remote stands during their duration at JFK. My flight from Concourse B left around noon so there were no El Al flights departing. I believe that the aircraft are probably guarded when they are on remote stands.

I'm not sure how security is handled inside the terminal during the flights though, sorry.

I'm sure it's no biggie...EgyptAir even uses El Al check-in counter space on some days.

El Al aircraft are parked on the apron because some flights arrive in the early AM and depart in the late PM.

As is normal with other JFK regulars like the Singapore 747-400 and Emirates A340-500 which spend time on the apron.

The EL AL flight to EWR also spends time on the apron because of its early arrival.

I had heard that one of the reasons EL AL is located at T1 at LHR was so that it wouldn't be co-located with certain other carriers at T2 and T3. Same went for South African Airways, who during aparthied years were relegated to T1 so as not to co-locate with other African carriers.
I also understand that at MUC EL AL, Arkia, and Israir use a segregated terminal only reachable by bus. I beleive this is more for security reasons than for issues of co-locating with other carriers.

LY7 is the flight number arriving JFK and LY8 is the flight number departing JFK.  Yeah sure

Looks like I made a bit of a mistake, EL AL has 12xweekly flights.

Sunday and Thursday have 3 flights a day while Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday have 2 flights.

EL AL does not fly into JFK on Friday and Saturday.

There is an LY8 that departs on Saturdays at 23:50, no flights arrive on Saturday though.

I could very well be wrong but I believe the reason for limited or no flights on Friday and Saturday is due to the Sabbath?

Almost certainly. In Israel itself all public transport shuts down Friday afternoon and doesn't start up till Saturday night.

Theoretically it shouldn't be a problem as travelling over water on the Sabbath isn't proscribed in Judaism but of course the pax and crew still have to get to the airport.

thats not true
taxis still operate although they may be limited in places like Jerusalem
also buses do close in Jerusalem and Modi'in and i think Tibirus but their still open Eilat and i thin Tel Aviv and Haifa

its nothing with traveling over the water its more about ... well everything involved such as flying or using a phone.

As we all know EL AL is known for their top notch security on board their aircraft but I don't think the top notch security is everywhere that the airline flies besides TLV and on board the aircraft. As mentioned I'm sure there is not much of a difference in terms of security at Terminal 4 with EL AL and Israir as there is with Virgin Atlantic or TAM.

Before entering either the B concourse or the A concourse in Terminal 4 there is a security check point and I imagine that is the only security the passengers go through before boarding the flights although there may be second screening at the gate.

so to begin i magine youv never gone to israel or not on LY 6H or IZ for that matter
but there is much more security than you think
to start when you arrive your already put into to 3 diffrent "groups" which is technically discrmination but their allowed to do this
then they begin with you
as your waiting in line for check in your "interigated"
they baiscally ask you a few simple qustiones (but they can change by group)
the qustiones are like is it your first time going
why are you going
and so on

then on almost all if not all there is/are air marshal/s

and then their planes are escorted and specially treated such as when the plane on a stand there are officers on board (i think)

so thats that

That is true, I have never been to Israel. The closest to the Middle East that I have gotten to was Morocco.

I believe that is true as well.

However I believe there is no difference in security once you pass the security check point for Concourse B until you enter the aircraft.

for the actual person you may be right unless they need to "talk" to you
but it doesnt mean that the security officers stop working cause you walked through a metal detector and got past it.

That is absolutely correct however I don't think TSA guards single out passengers flying on LY as they are walking around Concourse B.

Do you happen to have TWA's TLV schedule handy? I'd be curious what time their flights were compared to CO today...

Not at the TSA checkpoint, but El Al has heavy security around their check-in area.

Don't forget that many terrorist attacks have been carried out against El Al check-in counters during the years...Most recently in the summer of 2002 at LAX.

In regards to the topic - I've flown from T4 on EK to HAM on Saturday, April 14th myself and was wondering about that too - not because of the airlines or the crews. I'm sure they are professional enough not to bother about another airline/crew. But looking around in the terminal area, I saw quite a lot of orthodox Jews and obviously Muslim people sitting in the restaurant area. Thus, I've been wondering if they ever had clashes between passengers awaiting their flights and giving comments to each other...
