A smoke detector warning in a bathroom forced an El Al airplane with 324 passengers  on the New York-Tel Aviv route to land in Athens late Wednesday night, according to the Hebrew-language Yediot Acharonot newspaper.

All of the crew and passengers are safe, and the airline placed them in hotel rooms before they could resume their trip to early Thursday morning.





  1. Meanwhile a Birthright child who was smoking and drinking in the bathroom while we were waiting for take off in NY and El AL and Birthright did NOTHING. Noone was called, the child got his free trip no consequences. Throughout the flight the kids in the rear of the plane who were totally unsupervised carried on like animals, still nothing happened.
