Since 2004, when Terminal 3 opened for international flights, terminal 1 operated only for domestic flights. In 2009, terminal 1 operated again for international flights, but only for Low cost flights, and after the check in in the terminal, passengers were moved to terminal 3 for boarding and duty free. Then, in last June, after renovation of terminal 1, it began to operate fully for low cost and charter flights, but still only for outbound passengers. Inbound low cost and charter flights still recive their services in terminal 3. So here's my flight report about my flight with UP and after a long time since my last visit in terminal 1.

I went to the toilets, and as you can see, they were clean:
There's one coffee shop and some duty free stores, less than you have in terminal 3, but it's enough. Also you can buy some food and drinks in automat machines:
Water bottle: 7NIS (1.5 Euro) Coca cola bottle: 9NIS (2 Euro) Sandwich: 14NIS (3 Euro)

Tel Aviv - TLV
Prague - PRG
Up is low cost company on behalf of Elal, the biggest airline in Israel. They opreate 4 Boeing 737-800 aircrafts, and sometimes they use Elal or sundor (Charter company on behalf of Elal) aircrafts. The service was very good, the cabin crew were very nice, the flight was very smooth, include the take off and the landing. However, the aircraft should look better and they should reduce the prices in the menu. The legroom is OK for me, but less than you'll have in Elal Boeing 737-800/737-900 or LH A321 for example. Overhead screens worked well in this flight, but if You want to hear something, You need to buy headphones for 2$ USD. (I know that in LCC all services costs money)
Terminal 1 was nice, but less than terminal 3. It was clean and the access from the parking is excellent, but they should improve the times of the security check, by adding more workers.
PRG airport was very good also, very clean, easy to navigate in the terminal.
