EL AL 2010 - Strategic Plan

Sat Sep 24, 2005 10:47 am

I posted this on another thread, but Im not sure most will see it.
Here is the hebrew version of the the plan approved by El Al's B.O.D.
Most of it has already been quoted here and in the news. I'll try to get an english version of it or maybe someone here can translate it.

If you want to read it in Hebrew go to view, chose encoding then Hebrew. Worked for me.
Its too long to translate but the main ideas I found are the fact that as said here before el-al is looking to purchase 2 Boeing 777 or airbus 340. In addition they are looking into maybe buying more a/c in the future. Also business class is being replaced on some of the a/c. Mainly 737, 757, and some 767. They are also making a call center available 24-7.

No, it's more like, we know who our friends are, and aren't.

The US is a friend of the Jewish people in general, the Jewish State in particular.

France is not.

Quite simple really.

GeorgiaAME,

Then how come there's a very successful Jewish community numbering 500,000 living in France? BTW the anti-semitic acts being carried out by North Africans is not France's fault!

France has done many wrong things to Israel in the past. Simply put, France has bad relations with Israel. They will never buy Airbus.

Are we speculating about aviation or politics???!!!

So then maybe Georgia shouldn't make comments like:

No, it's more like, we know who our friends are, and aren't.

The US is a friend of the Jewish people in general, the Jewish State in particular.

France is not.

Quite simple really

El Al will never buy an Airbus, they´re with Alaska the homeboys of Boeing

They did order A330's but I can't remember what happened to this order.

cheers

Egmcman, perhaps they got a phone call from the president of the USofA?

I believe there are charters to Brazil over the next few months.

Otherwise, range constraints have probably made TLV-South America difficult. Because El Al can't fly over most Arab/Muslim countries, their aircraft would have to take a very circuitous route around Africa in order to cross the Atlantic.

I'd like to know how Arkia and El Al are planning to route the aforementioned charters.

GeorgiaAME, PHXinterrupted,JAGFlyer:

France has the third largest Jewish community in the world, after USA and Israel. You can't generalize few anti-semitic acts carried by some stupid people...

It's not true to say that France is not a friend of Israel. There is still a huge cooperation between the two countries but at a secret level and during the 60s/70s France has helped a lot Israel to develop a nuclear industry and a strong military industry (in particular the aircraft).

Now the relations between politicians at an official level are much better (visits of the Israelian President and the Prime Minister in France in a 1 year period).
