El Al, Israel’s national airliner, announced Monday morning that it would offer passengers of last week’s now infamous “Shabbos Flight” free tickets to Europe as compensation for the extremely late departure of the flight, and inconvenience caused to religious passengers who were unloaded in Greece.
“El Al has decided to give roundtrip tickets for flights to Europe to all 400 of the passengers on the November 11th Flight LY 002 from New York to Tel Aviv, due to the inconvenience caused to passengers.”
The company also denied accusing religious passengers of attacking the flight crew.
“In addition, the company believes it is important to restate that, as already mentioned in a press release on November 19th, [El Al] never placed any blame on the secular or religious or haredi public for the incidents which have been reported. Any reports to the contrary were not made with El Al’s consent.”
