Flew on one of El Al’s new 777’s. Personal screens are good with a lot of choice of movies, but surprisingly the seats aren’t very comfortable although adjustable headrests were welcome. Unfortunately the cabin service remains as poor as ever with one round of drinks only, served by generally miserable staff. We’ve been told that they have a new chef, which may be true as the food has got even duller and blander than before. Chicken with couscous had about 5 pieces of green beans, a smear of tomato sauce and the minced chicken balls were absolutely taste free. They’re almost always cheaper than BA but not in the same league. Generally whenever we can we use Lufthansa even though it requires a transfer at Frankfurt.
