If you book your flight via the ELAL website you can chose your seats. The site shows the layout of the plane your traveling on and which seats are taken already when people make their booking. The solution is to say if reserved seats are occupied by women or men, its easy enough to do because you have to say what your sex is when making the booking. Listing the sex of the people who have reserved the seats will not totally eliminate the problem but it will make a big difference if men & women know what sex is the individual they will be sitting next to. It will also encourage more people to book directly with ELAL via their website if they know they will be able to chose if they sit next to a man or woman if they book online so its good for business for ELAL themselves, less complications in mid flight so everybody is a winner.
