The taste was OK, and sandwich for short flight is enough.

Conclusion

This was short and nice flight with Arkia.
The crew was very nice and recived my request to enter to the Cockpit.
The seats are comfortable and the legroom is OK.
The meal was tasty and Sandwich is enough for short flight.
Entertainment score is Zero because there's no overhead TVs or even Music.

I always giving high score to TLV airport because I never experienced problems. The general cleanliness should be better and than I'll give higher score.

LCA got medium scores because It was old when I traveled to LCA. Today, as I know, the terminal looks much better.
