After a short trip in Israël, I arrived at Ben-Gurion airport by car. That was again very fluent and the roads are very confortable.
On the road, i could spot the B747-400 El AL 4X-ELH retiered from the fleet and replaced by a plane from Wamos Air until the new B787-900 will arrive.

Then, I arrived in the Terminal 3.
Here is the fids:

Then, I should do the security control where they ask you a lot of questions.
After that, i've remarqued that there was a very huge queue to let your luggage.
However, I didn't buy one with my ticket, I had some presents that couldn't go with me in the plane.
So, i asked to the sky priority desk if I can let them the luggage for free.
They were very happy because there is too much hand luggage in the plane !!!

After that, i did the normal security check.
In Tel-Aviv, the equivalent of PARAFE is very fluent.
They use a eye control which work very well.

I arrived in the duty free part of the Terminal and after that, i started spotting :
B737-B747 (certainely the last time I see them)-B767 El Al
B737 UP for El Al
MD-82 for Burgarian Air Charter
A321 Austrian
B787-900 British Airways
A320 Brussels Airlines
A320 Air Berlin
A321 Lufthansa



I went to our gate where our plane was waiting us
Like everytime I took Air France from or to Tel Aviv, it was F-GKXY (7 years old)

We boarded with a little delay due to a saturate sky over Cyprus and Greece
Here is my seat with the pillow and the blancket

The pitch was very bad and I couldn't recline my seat for a 4 hours long flight
Again, the central screen and Air France didn't work, this flight was really boring.

By the window, i could see the A330 from Aeroflot to Moscow and A320 from Israir

After departure, I spotted a B757 from Arkia

After take-off, I received my kosher meal.
As on the flight from Paris to Tel-Aviv, the meal was excellent but the portions were really to small and I was very hungry

photo img_2056photo img_2057

This was the normal meal

photo img_2058

The flight was very agitated due to turbulences area all over Europe
The crew was again very nice
A very good point for Air France

The landing was very smooth
We parked next to an other Airbus from the A320 family

At the passport control, there were operations work in order to install new parafe system

We received our luggage very fastly compared to the others times I was waiting for luggages in Terminal 2E

Thank you for reading
So sorry for the pictures
