I am coming back home after a 10 days spent in Tel-Aviv
Woken up at 3am and an arrival at the airport at 4am

After the El Al's security checks, I am chocked to discover the new checks that are longer than I remerbered.
According to ofthen travelers, this may have appeared me long as between 6 and 9am, there are a lot of flights going to Europe
