Hello and welcome to my flight from Tel Aviv to Barcelona on EL AL's Boeing 747-400.

Conclusion

On this flight wasn't any WIFI system, the entertainment was poor of movies.
The crew didn't come when I call them, just after 15 minutes I saw one of the cabin crew and then I asked him to come.
The air condition worked very bad, it was hot in the plane.
The omlet was so spongy and the taste was awful!
I'm happy they took this type of plane of the company for the new Dreamliner.
After all, EL AL trying to be more modern and they need to get another chance to grow up with the new types of planes (B788/9) and the changing of the cabin of B738.

    Thanks for this cool report Roy! It's sad to see so many 747s being retired, but LY didn't have the best product on theirs and you're right that the new dreamliner product is so much nicer. The EL Al 744s have long been a common sight for me at JFK, it was weird not to see any last time I was there. Thanks for sharing!
