A nightmare.

Review of Peter P. about the flight El Al Israel Airlines between Larnaca and Tel Aviv on 23/03/2016 in Economy

Note: This review is about an experience that happened more than 3 years ago.

Avoid this airline by all means even they would offer you a flight for free. I am western European, fullfil visa requirements for Israel and booked a flight with them.

There is a security check at the departure airport only with this airline. I got treated like a criminal, 2 hours of interviews about everything, they looked through all my personal stuff including, computer, phone, wallet, full body scan, etc. etc.

They refused to let me take any handluggage and they refused to take me laptop onboard at all. In the end I had to stay because I would not leave my laptop behind obviously. The security stuff is rude to the maximum, no explanation about anything and make you feel like a prisoner.

I didn't board even I had paid for the flight, the were completly unwilling also to give my any documentation about there refusal to take me laptop in the plane so at least I could have got a reimbursement from my private travel insurance.

If flying take any other airline not this one ! I am a very experienced traveler, have been to many countries and flew with many airlines. But this one is the worstI have ever seen in my life.
