Great for ELAL, although their service needs to improve by a large margin; their flight attendants are rather rude!

I love the El Al 777! Finally they will get rid of the 742. I was recently on an El Al 742 and was not crazy about it. Also, I think the 777 in El Al's colors is the nicest 777 out of all of them!

I've checked out their schedules: the 777 will be flying on TLV-HKG and TLV-JFK with effect from 28 March. Haven't got any news about LHR yet, perhaps they'll start in the next season.

Its okk ......nothing that great ..... certainly not one of the best 777's around........ the Saudi,Egypt Air and some of BA 777'z are much better.

I have been on an EL AL 742 and 744 several years ago(JFK-TLV and back) in business class. I must say that the service was pretty good, even though the 742 cabin did look outdated compared to the actual 744 we were on that was making it's inagural scheduled flight from JFK-TLV. It is not the most beautiful 777 around, but I have seen much worse though.

Hello everyone!
As was mentioned, El Al's new 777 will fly to LAX, JFK, EWR, AMS and BKK.
The daily flight to LHR that was set to be upgraded to a 777, LY315/6, will remain operated by both 742 & 744 since the 777 doesnt have enough capacity to answer the demend for that route.

The latest issue of Flight International reports that EL AL is looking for additional B744's or B777 to be able to replace its B742 and B767 fleet faster and to offer more seats.
