All this is, is an attempt to drum up attention. The orthodox fly whatever airline is cheapest and fly to israel on CO
and even AeroSvit through Kiev. I wish Elal would stop paying so much attention to this, simply say "we are not a government airline, we are a business. we respect all religions but if you dont want to fly us, that is your choice. Whatever losses they had or will have by "upsetting" the othrodox market will be offset if they just start flying on Saturdays. For one, they will start being my choice. People forget that this whole mess was because of a labor strike that forced Elal to operate into the sabbath or risk stranding thousands worldwide. It was not a planned event. If the orthodox want their own airline, good luck, they can then fly it to the holocaust deniers convention in Teheran.
