El Al dint try to fly to sydney. Sun D'or,a company owned by El Al wanted to fly charter flights utilising the El Al 777's out of BKK
, but because of the tight schedule the flights wouldnt make it back on time to BKKHKG so the idea was dropped,it surely wasnt because of securtiy resaons.
Another thing is that if El Al will stop flying to YYZ
,AC will stop as well,and El Al will most likely cut the code share agreements they have with AC
.El Al has a pretty wide codesharing agreement with delta to let them cease the flights to canda and let DL
fly thier customers out of EWRJFK to continuing destinations in canada.Another thing is that the flights to canda only fly through YYC
in order to reduce the aircraft's time on the ground on thier way to LAX
.there are not that many pax's that fly into canda on EL AL,most of them continue onto LAX
.LY could resume flying through ORD
thier LY105 flights and continue on from there to LAX
...so to sum it all up,if LY
stops flying to Canada,the only big issue would be a political one.
