Next time there is trouble in the M.E see if you can get a flight on ones of your budget airlines. Every foreign airline will stop its flights into and out of the area. We will only have EL AL to rely on to bring fly in the thousands of Israelis who will come home and its cargo services are invaluable. If it costs us extra to show our flag to the world it is well worth it. I don't know about you but I am always so proud to see our beautifull blue and white planes flying our flag at the airport.
