After 2 weeks in Thailand, that was very nice, the weather is horrible, but the other things were pure fun and good time with my family, I needed to return to my country. I hoped for better aircraft than was in flight LY081, but I got the same worst aircrraft. You can see my experience with this aircraft here: http://flight-report.com/en/report-13505.html
Aircraft information: Boeing 747-400 First flight: 1.3.1996 In ELAL fleet since March 2011. Reconfigurated in ELAL. This is the only B744 in ELAL fleet that hasn't first class. (Instead of first class in the nose, there's premium economy class)
The aircraft was connected to gate for 2 doors, so the boarding was quick.
I sat in my seat. Horrible! My headrest was broken and the tray was unstable (missing screw or something like this) It was maybe acceptable for 2-3 hours but not for long haul flight! The aircraft was 100% load, so the crew weren't helped.
Crackers and cold drink served shortly after the take off:
1.5 Hours after take off the crew served night meal:
Included: Pasta, hummus salad, pita bread, sliced vegetables, fruits, water and hot drink.
Than the cabin was darkened:
I tried to sleep, but I wasn't because the broken headrest.
So I watched my "high" resolution PTV:
In this time it worked OK…
2 Hours before landing the crew served breakfast:
Included: Omelet with potatos, sliced fruits, strawberry jam, bulgarian cheese with vegetables, cake, bread, water and hot drink.
All the meals were very nice.
Shortly before landing:
(the wing shot took from the window door of the aircraft…)
Another nightmare finished and We landed in Ben Gurion airport:
Taking the lagguage and good bye!
