Second flight with Elal to the east. The first time I flew to Thailand (BKK) with ELAL in Boeing 747-400 4X-ELH, known in Israel as: "The flying pigsty". (LY081 and LY082) I hoped for better flight in this time and It was better and "repaired" the bad experience.
I got the "newest" Boeing 767-300 in ELAL fleet, 4X-EAL. (Flying since 2000, in service in ELAL from April 2011)
Ben Gurion airport entry:
After 2 hours in the duty free, I boarded to the aircraft.
(Thank You IAA for the points on the window that always make my photos looks bad)
The flight took off at time. The aircraft isn't so huge and I liked It. Better flight exprience than the Boeing 747-400 that carries more passengers (Something like twice than the B763). The seat space is perfect! The comfortest aircraft I flew in ELAL fleet! (I tried B738, B744, B752 and B763)
Short time after take off the crew served us crackers and drinks.
Some cabin photos during cruise: (I think that I'm the only person who doesn't sleep in long flights)
The flight is very boring. There's no PTV. I brought my laptop with me and It helped to entertain me.
But I had a luck! The pilots recived my request and I entered to the cockpit! They were very nice and I was in the cockpit for 2 hours of the flight. I think that they were boring also ;)
7 hours after the take off, the crew served a breakfast:
It's included: Salad, bread, yogurt, water, "ski" cheese (white cheese in hebrew), date honey, vinaigrette sauce and water. Also we got hot drinks like cofee and tea.
(Sorry but I wasn't took photos of the meal that served after the take off)
Then we closed to Beijing. Some cabin photos:
And from the gate:
PEK airport is huge! I never saw so huge airport in my life! But it's organized well and You can go to your destination in the airport without problems.
