Over the past few weeks, multiple El Al flights were delayed because ultra-Orthodox men refused to sit next to women.

In light of these incidents, Tablet Magazine had the Levinson Brothers, who made El Al's in-flight safety video, make a hilarious video poking fun at the phenomena and the airline.

While the phenomenon of lone Haredi men approaching female passengers is not new, and has in fact gone on for years, large groups of Haredim - upwards of 15-20 people in some instances - are reportedly attempting to secure blocs of seats for themselves. Their persistence is causing consternation and friction, while setting off a host of logistical problems during the course of some flights, according to a number of sources interviewed by Haaretz.
