After 10 days in China, that was very humid but beatiful, I took off to my country.

During the flight I went to the galley and the crew served me crackers and cold drink.

7 hours after take off (and 2 hours before landing) the crew served breakfast:

Included: Bulgarian cheese, fruit salad, butter, bread, vegetables, cake, water and hot drinks.

The breakfast and the night meal were very nice. Since my first time that I ate meal in aircraft (in 2003) the meals were changed and now they are edible and even tasty.

Then we arrived to our destination, TLV (Ben Gurion) airport.

The flight was very nice. The plane looks old and there's no PTV. The main screens sometimes stopped to work. It doesn't matter for me because I had laptop, but for other passengers It may be annoying.
Today the B763 of ELAL upgraded and they including streaming system that works with Smartphones, laptops and tablets.
