I always hoped to visit in Germany. Heard lot about the driving culture, the amazing museums for aviation, cars, technology and beatiful cities.
So We dicided to travel to Germany.

After short sleep, We started the car and traveled to TLV airport (one hour driving).

At 2.45AM we arrived to the airport:

The cabin looks very nice, 6 years old aircraft when I was on.

One hour after take off, the crew served breakfast:

Included: Omelet, salad, yogurt, some sauce (I think It was date honey or something like this), white cheese, bread, water and hot drinks.
The meal was nice, expect the omelet that was OK.

The flight was nice, the crew was nice, the aircraft was clean, nothing broken or dirty.
There's no PTV in the B737NG fleet in ELAL, the overhead TV worked OK.

The aircraft was 2/3 load, so there were many free seats and even free rows.
The seat pitch is nice and I felt OK.

Ready to landing…

We arrived to SIXT rental car to take our reserved car. The distance is long from the lagguage area.
Das Autos!


We reserved Ford Mondeo STW. For 10 Euro per day we upgraded our car to Audi A6 TDI Avant.
Our ride for the trip:

(Nice car!)

I must say that from SIXT to the parking area the distance is also long.
