      El Al Advances Schedule Because of the Strike


      El Al Israel Airlines decided, Sunday evening, to make flights earlier so that they can take off before the start of Monday morning's strike by the Histadrut Labor Federation over contract labor. Most flights scheduled to leave before 7:30 a.m. will take off as scheduled, except for the 7:15 flight to Eilat, which has been scheduled. Other flights have been advanced to 7:30 or earlier, or passengers are being transferred to earlier flights.

      Passengers are being asked to go to Ben Gurion Airport early. People should call El Al at 03 971 6606, visit El Al's website or stay tuned to the media for the latest updates.
