Of all the air carriers in the world, only El Al aircraft are equipped with an anti-missile defense system.
El Al planes do not make flights on Saturdays due to the special religious status of this day of the week in Judaism. On Shabbat (Saturday) believing Jews are forbidden to travel.
In the aircraft El Al, only kosher food is served. Consider that many Russian passengers are not delighted with it. Perhaps you will not like it either.
The airline El Al boasts one world record. This is a record number of passengers in one plane - 1122 people. Of course, this was not a regular flight, but a special flight during an operation to evacuate ethnic Jews from Ethiopia in 1991.
And now about the sad
For all you need to pay, and for security including. El Al is considered the safest airline in the world due to increased security measures, which many consider redundant.
Manual checks of luggage are selectively carried out. Your bag can open and check each item inside. Moreover, this is done without your presence. Then you'll put things back.
The interview with passengers is selectively conducted. You may be questioned for an hour about the purpose of your visit to Israel, about family and work, even about your personal life. A personal search of passengers is carried out selectively, and this is nothing more than a thorough search.
Selectively passengers are taken away from hand luggage after passing control at the airport, and return things only during boarding.
All these measures strongly irritate travelers.
What is more important - security or the rights and freedoms of citizens? This issue has always been topical, and Israeli airlines are still making a choice in favor of security. If you do not like it, then buy tickets for Aeroflot flights, prices vary slightly.
