Hello and welcome to my flight-report about my visit in London!

My flights for this trip:

TLV (Tel Aviv, Israel) -> LTN (Luton, England) U2 (EasyJet), A320, YOU ARE HERE! / VOUS ETES ICI!

LTN (Luton, England) -> (Tel Aviv, Israel) ZB (Monarch) A320

Before flight:

The plane that flies for flight U22084 departed late from Luton (1 hour behind scheldue) , and as a result, our flight from Tel Aviv delayed to 15:20.

I took a taxi to the airport at 1:00PM, as I knew about the delay, Normally it's about 20 min by driving but actually there was an accident on the Highway to the Airport, and I arrived to the airport only on 2:00PM (Less than 90 minutes for an International flight from The most secured airport, Tel Aviv - Ben Gurion (TLV)!!!

Some airlines have the check in and the passport control in the old terminal of TLV, Terminal 1. The airlines that use this terminal are Easyjet, Wizzair, Norwegian, UP, and some flights of Arkia, Israir and Pegasus. Terminal 1 also operates the domestic route for Eilat (30 min by flying).

So I hadn't been in Terminal 1 since Terminal 3 opened (2004).
This is Terminal 1:

    Thanks for sharing this report. I had forgotten that EZY flew all the way to TLV. That's a really long fly to be on a low-cost airline, but the seats are pretty comfortable. The lack of IFE is probably the hardest, but then again there are many planes in the U.S. doing 5 hour transcons with no IFE. If the proce is much better, it's a nice option to have EZY on the route. Though BA is flying mostly widebodies, so definitely better product-wise on TLV-LON, but surely more expensive. Thanks for sharing!

    Thanks for this FR
    Almost 6h in an easyjet airplane, it might be difficult in terms of comfort!
    Could you select your seat for free at web-checkin? Or change the assigned one for free?
    Or you must pay if you want to select your seat at any stage?
