Yikes; this is poor marketing in my opinion. i would assume the press would cover this extensively and when you have TV cameras - size does matter. Does El Al have a marketing department?
I applaud them for making a very sensible decision. When you are laying of people you just can not justify a 787/777. Especially in these times. And especially not if you value your workforce and stakeholders. I know it's historic but you have to use common sense too.
Sources say a 737 was chosen over a 787 , because the 737 has an anti-missile system, originally a 787 was chosen
