4 El-Al Flights Canceled Due to Pilots' Strike


Four El-Al flights that had been scheduled to leave on Thursday evening from Tel Aviv to London, Budapest, Bucharest and Munich were canceled due to the pilots unexpectedly walking off their jobs.

"You cannot expect the pilots to fly tired," said the pilots’ union on Thursday evening, explaining the sudden strike. "They have been working well beyond the accepted normal working hours.”
