Hi everyone
Happy new year to all !

Being in X-mas Hollidays since Friday December 20th and needing to go to Cannes on Wednesday December 25th and wishing to go in Israel during this period, I created an alarm on Kayak 3 weeks before.
I found nothing interesting before Wednesday December 18th where Kayak made me an offer with Alitalia at 500€ on Expedia, with an extra 50€ offered by Expedia once on their website.

The routing will be : 


Routing


I arrived in TLV from Tel-Aviv in 20min.
I will pass the safety chechks in less than 20 min too (probably thanks to the matinal departure and the day of the flight).
Tha ground staff was very kind, as a manager who would make me us the business line for the safety check as nobody was using it.

The FIDS of TLV :

I rarely left TLV as that time.
So, I spot some of the airlines I almost never met at TLV before.

 A350 Cathay Pacific :

Then, the newest aircraft in El Al fleet
B787-8 (in the fleet for less than one month at the time)

Our airplane is parked far away.
The boarding via pax-bus is launched with a delay of 20min.

We arrive next to the only airplane which is not in contact.
A320 AZ "Francesco Petrarca"

No evidence of a former IFE this time :

The PSU seems to indicate that the plane is not that old :

I would have no neighbour for that flight.

We passed quickly over the clouds

Than, a small alert in the cockpit.
The captain wil ask the crew to check each phone of the passengers are well on flight mode or turned off and announce a technical issue due to device(s) not in flight mode.

After 1h of flight, the breakfast is served.

Once again everything is very tasty.
BRAVO ALITALIA

But, once again, the meal isn't kosher.
What a pity when we see how many people wanted to order a kosher meal. 

Being still hungry at the end of the service, I would ask for a second meal that would be given to me very quickly by a very nice member of the crew.
The crew was very kind.
I will sleep until we started our approach to Roma.

Just over the italian coast.

    Nice that you were able to get a seat in row 4 since the seats closer to the front have more legroom since they can be converted to Business class. And with an empty seat next to you, you basically have a European Business class experience haha. Crazy to think that just a few weeks ago an empty seat next to you was such a rare luxury! Now all planes are empty...the ones still flying anyway.

    Thanks for sharing!
