El Al Israel Airlines.
During the 70's the airline had a great interest in the supersonic Boeing 2707 and even placed 2 options for that aircraft. However, The airliner wasn't eventually build.
In 2 tenders over the 90's, LY was thinking of getting the A32X family into service, the A346 and A332.
The most serious thoughts were for the A332, where LY was certain to buy 3-4 of it, but then the Middle East crisis had begun, add to that some political pressures and LY didn't order the a/c after all.
The airline was scheduled to get into service 2 A320s exactly 2 years ago, this was supposed to be the 1st ever operation of an Airbus a/c by an Israeli airline.
The airline was thinking seriously of operating Saab2000s instead its aging DHC-7s, Crossair even brought a sample to Israel, so Arkia was able to learn about it...
Also, the airline was considering the DHC-8-400Q to replace the DHC-7s, but chose in the end the ATR72 family.
