    It's your prerogative whioch airline to take, and a good thing too, since we wouldn't all want to compete for one line;'s business. Just please let me point out that of all the countries of this planet, the germans is one that showed true remorse and repented for what they did, and paid a huge price for it. There is no german person who doesn't know about the holocaust and - to my knowledge - is not deeply ashamed of it. By contrast, let's consider turkey (what? us slaughter Armenians? couldn't be!), Japanese (oh, korean comfort ladies? what's that?), Israel (nabqa? they brought it on themselves. occupation? ditto), US (1 M dead vietnamese? oops! 1 M dead Iraqis? saddam would have killed them anyways...). Shall I add a few? China? Russia? UK? France? As for Arabs taking El Al, I know they do - that was part of the story here. My comment was a suggestion not to, that's all. Frankly, I feel safer on most European airlines with their emphasis on training, maintenance and employees.
