LY Restructuring, Cost Cutting And Layoffs Ahead

Wed Oct 25, 2006 5:01 am

Fair use excerpt:

El Al announced that it was about to restructure its management which includes personnel changes and position cancellations. The post of VP global sales will be cancelled and its responsibilities will be transferred to the VP commerce and aviation connections

El Al Israel Airlines issued last week a statement indicating it had embarked upon a streamlining policy in order to cope with climbing costs and shrinking business.

RE: LY Restructuring, Cost Cutting And Layoffs Ahead

Wed Oct 25, 2006 6:39 am

An article in the Jerusalem Post today confirms that LY plans to cut ten percent of its staff in order to return to profitability. Many of those who will lose their jobs are temporary employees. The article says that LY decided to take drastic action now to avoid the type of financial crises that many American airlines face. El Al attributes its losses to declining tourism after the Lebanon war, a weakening dollar, and higher fuel costs.

The airline's CEO told the Jerusalem Post that "El Al will do what is necessary to improve efficiency and be profitable without affecting its high level of service we bring to our customers." He was also quoted as saying "We will continue to invest in new technologies, develop new routes and destinations and look very carefully at our cost structure so that we can increase revenue by adding value for our customers."

This article also reports that LY plans to add flights to its growth markets in North America and the Far East. According to the article, the winter schedule will include more flights to NYC, ORD, MIA, LAX, YYZ, BKK, PEK, and HKG. In fact, schedules posted on El Al's website indicate that the airline will not suspend service to YYZ. The airline will now offer four weekly flights to YYZ, which will continue to ORD. Nonstop flights to PEK and MIA increase to three times a week. As reported on this site, LY will add a fourth flight to HKG. However, LY may cut CAI, and LCA, which are unprofitable.

Well they could always start flying on Saturday that gives them 52 more days a year to make money.

ok...it makes sense that CAI is unprofitable. high security costs, low frequencies, low traffic volume and thus their 73Gs cant make the route profitable. it makes more sense that arkia or israir take the route on putting regional jets.

i dont agree with axing LCA though. I cant understand why LCA is unprofitable since Cyprus is a very very popular destination for Israelis (especially youngesters who choose cyprus for crazy days and nights at Ayia Napa) and Israel is a quite popular destination for Cypriot pilgrims. LY gets very good loads in the summer season. At least, they can keep LCA as a seasonal destination. Besides, Cyprus lacks of connections towards the Far East. Not that traffic is big, but still, LY could be a good alternative for the existing GF and EK options , provided that they offer competitive schedules and prices.

I suppose that the emphasis is on long-haul routes that offer a better mix of business passengers and tourists. If LY stops flying to LCA, I think that they will codeshare on CY flights.

Perhaps LY will ax other European destinations as part of its effort to cut costs. I wonder if JNB is a marginally profitable route for LY, and whether LY will eventually stop flying there.

maybe El Al should one day consider adding some smaller airplnes to the fleet....It's been considered btw, but not yet implemented. It was also considered a few years ago to retire all the old and noisy 747s from the fleet and replace them with 744s cargo....but it was not implemented either.
it seems that the only decisions El Al is actually implementing are the most stupid and unnecessary ones: livery change in 1999, logo "change" in 2006...Well what next? A new name to be even more fashionable?
I bitterly miss the livery that should never have been changed (repetition...)

I dont agree. Their fleet selection of long-haul A/C is an admirable example to follow for the suffering airlines in the mediterranean and M.Eastern region.
As for the livery, in my opinion, it is one of the best in the industry: simple and elegant.

I REALLY miss the old livery...but it's a question of taste.

But how about the "new" logo...? Have you seen it?

And given the very serious financial situation of LY those days, was it really necessary to invest money for an "updated" logo? To pay a so-called graphic designer...and then to repaint the logo on all the planes, and to replace hundreds of signs, including all over the new TLV terminal...? It cost a lot...Proof is that almost 8 years after the introduction of the new livery, not all airplanes have yet been repainted...and that's without even speaking of the ugly ex-NAA 738.

I think JNB is hugely profitable for LY -- there's a huge Jewish community in South Africa with very strong ties to Israel, and LY is the only carrier that offers JNB - TLV flights ATM. Additionally, a lot of younger people go to Israel to work on Kibbutzim from JNB, and they also fly LY.

LCA to go.. How ridculous.

During the summer, they regularly send 747s from TLV to LCA. Does not make sense to me that they can send 747s on such a short sector, yet not profitable.

It's only a tour of about 3 hours tops. If LY can get cheaper fuel up in LCA it sometimes makes sense to send the 744 to LCA to carry fuel for it's next flight...

The only competition on this route is 4 weekly connections on Ethiopian, while LY's 3 nonstops probably take most of the traffic.

It's a question of taste...but a majority of the "public" still considers the old classical scheme and colors as more beautiful and more elegant. El Al planes looked classy and impressive...nowadays they have the look of a cheap charter or "low-cost" airline.

But the worst...the worst has yet to come on the planes: the so-called "new logo", a pure HORROR!! And here, it is not only a question of taste... The old logo was the result of a profound typographical research....And it was itself btw based on characters created in the early 1960s by a master of graphic design in Holland. The new one is STUPID, its only achievement is to destroy the graphical harmony of the current one. Each and every letter in the "new" logo is ugly, both the Latin and Hebrew characters. The "E", the "A", the "L"...all are ugly now.

But well...while the airline is sinking more and more into big troubles, the management finds nothing better than spend hundreds of thousands of dollars, if not millions, to "modernize" its image in the most boring and ugly way...Really, for a company possessing such a strong an loved logo, it is a frighteningly stupid and unnecessary decision. BTW, the management could have learned from the 1999 livery change that this kind of cosmetic arrangements WILL NOT transform LY's image and perception...

there aren't yet EL Al flights on Saturdays although the airline is now legally free to operate flights on these days, which was not the case before privatization.
but El Al planes were in the air on Saturdays even before that, but were operating Arkia or Sun d'Or flights, Sun d'Or being actually El Al's charter subsidiary.


PIA and Air Arabia's liveries are even worst than the El Al livery, but these airlines did not get rid of a somptuous livery in order to adopt their current ones... And btw, there's still a third airline from a Muslim country which found some inspiration in El Al's new livery:

As for the classic livery, I liked it, too, but the new one is more modern, but I can understand what you mean...

If demand for flights between Israel and China is really increasing, maybe a Chinese airline will enter the market. It could either compete with LY on flights to PEK, or become the only airline flying from from Shanghai to TLV. I think that the most direct route from either city is over Russia and Turkey and, therefore, these flights would not have to take long detours to avoid Iran and Arab countries.

Indeed, for the time being...but it's only a matter of time...time and money, because this stupid move has a cost....any logo change implies high costs....and given the very serious financial situation of El Al, that was specifically an avoidable expense...
Instead of disfiguring their marvellous logo, they should have first painted their whole fleet in the "new" livery; the ex-"North American Airlines" is still flying wearing its original livery...and the result is ugly.

There would probably need to be demand from Chinese pax before a Chinese airline would consider routing one or more of their valuable long range widebodies to such a route. Business ties are growing, but tourism is not - despite the fact that it's arguably safer to walk the streets or Jerusalem than it is to walk through downtown Los Angeles, the Chinese tend to shy away from destinations where the occasional pedestrian is wearing a C4 vest and where the streets aren't lined with premium shops.

There might be other issues with some Islamic countries having Chinese airlines service both their destinations and TLV as well.

This should not be a problem. Most European carriers serve both TLV and destinations in Islamic countries. However, many Islamic countries probably won't permit Chinese airlines to overfly their territories on the way to TLV.

LY already is a private sector company. I doubt LY will start flying on the Jewish Sabbath because this would alienate Orthodox Jews, who are an important customer base for the airline. Also, flying on the Jewish Sabbath would mean that LY would no longer be in compliance with religious laws governing kosher food.

LY no longer has traffic rights to CPH. I think that the right to fly to CPH was transferred to Arkia or Israir.
