• Well, I observed El Al's screening measures before check-in at Bangkok's Don Muang airport on several occasions and let me tell you, it was very onerous and time consuming. For some passengers, it was also quite humiliating. A lot of people refused to fly on El Al for this reason. Those who neede...

  • That is provided El Al no longer does intense, time consuming passenger screenings prior to check-in like they used to. I observed this process going on, years ago now, at Don Muang airport in Bangkok and it looked like a huge hassle. If El Al applies this policy to every one of it's flights, the...

  • Yes, that's a nice option too. Zurich is a great place to transit or spend a day or two. However, from Australia it will inevitably be a one stop service just to get there (meaning Emirates or Qatar, alternatively, THAI or SQ via Bangkok/Singapore respectively). For those who need to visit Tel Av...

    Wellington has a curfew too? What's the deal with all these curfews at Australian/NZ airports? I'm all in favor of noise reduction and improving quality of life, but come on, 95% or more of the world's major airports don't have a curfew and they're not playing these games.
