I forgot to mention;
I flew in EBI a few times, this a/c, in oppose to LY other 757, didn't have the beige and brown strips on the wall, it had a striking shades of blue on it's wall, its carpet and stuff were in the same decorations of the 744 fleet.
It was a nice a/c.
Last time I flew on it was July 2000 TLV-ZRH.
David, you once posted a topic regarding LY flight that left it parking place at TLV for t/o to ZRH before all pax got on the a/c, that meant that the a/c would've t/o with un accompanied cargo, which would've meant a huge security fault in the eyes of most airlines... If you recall what I'm talking about, then you should know that this was my last flight on EBI. My mother and granny where 2 of the 15 pax who didn't get on the a/c before it started it taxi to the runway.
