Ben Gurion International Airport

Six (up from four) El Al flights were cancelled tonight at the last minute, including the popular Flight 001 to JFK, NY and Flight 027 to Newark, NJ, as well as the Hong Kong line, after pilots called a Wildcat Strike.

For now, the flights have been delayed until later, but it remains to be seen if there won’t be further delays, or if more El Al flights will be affected.

One visiting tourist told JewishPress.com that while she is thrilled she can spend more time with her grandchildren who live in Israel, the unexpected strike disrupted all her plans.

El Al sent out automated voice messages and SMSes to passengers to inform them of the delays.

To find out if your El Al flight was affected, call (in Israel) 03-977-1111 or click here.

  1. In love, NO.
    In Like You bet your sweet **S! The real question is why you are not a fan!
    I realize that every ignorant idiot in the United States blames President Obama for every sorry thing in their lives. I never ceases to amaze me how he is blamed for every thing since the flood. The say the most crazy and ridiculous things about him and his family, no matter how false it is. Are you aware that Laura Bush murdered her boy friend when she was a teenager? Do you ever hear Democrats or anyone else ever bringing that up? Michele Obama tries to make the lives of American children healthier and ignorant people go after her as though she was the devil herself. The call her and her children all kinds of terrible things. Things that you mother NEVER taught you to say about anyone. Why do you or anyone else go around demanding he prove he was born in Hawaii? He provided his birth certificate (which is not required by law,) they accuse him of being a Muslim, as though that were a crime, and do not believe him when he says he is Christian (he is indeed a Christian more so than any republican member of the house or senate!) He was educated at Columbia and Harvard Law School where he made law review and was editor of the Harvard Law Journal, all things that can easily be proven, but yet you ignorant idiots continue to say he cannot prove it! He is NOT a socialist even though all you ignorant people keep calling him that, again as though it were a dirty name. Do you even know what a Socialist is? Doubtful if you think he is one! There is only one single program in American that is actually Socialist and that is the Veterans Hospitals which everyone loves so much! From the 1st day he was elected (NOT sworn in as President,) Mitch McConnell said he would do everything he can to make Obama a failure and a one term President! It took him 6 years of LYING about everything (there was even a bill introduced by McConnell that when Obama came out in favor of) that McConnell voted against because Obama was for it. I could go on and on, but you are so intense for your phony hatred and so republican there is no fact that you will ever accept. The republicans have played a dirty trick on you with there mastering of the NAZI big lie – "Lie to them often enough, make it outrageous enough, and they will believe" in this cause the they is you and you do believe in what they want you to believe no matter how wrong it is!

  2. I am not an idiot and voted for him twice. i now think he was not ready to be the president. Had no ability to work with Congress. had no real knowledge of the Middle east, has made the US a joke in many countries.You are too defensive and sound demented.

  3. You most certainly are an idiot if you really believe what you say! Are you so sure he did not have the ability to work with congress or was it the congress who was so intent on making him fail that would not work with him – get your facts straight! Let's see now, you claim he had no real knowledge of the middle east, I say no matter how little he had is was a billion times more than the person before him that was responsible for getting over 4,000 of America's finest young men and women killed and seriously wounding and permanently maiming over 40,000 more! All because he thought in order to be a great President you had to win a war! Well he did not win a war! Obama ended the wars and is listening to the American people who do not want additional wars right now. He certainly did not create the current situation in the Middle East and congress is giving him a really hard time about it! When he wants to pull out troops they want to go to war, when he wants to go to war, they argue with him not to! They simply refuse to work with him. You cannot name one single country where they think President Obama is a joke! Unlike you, I am not defensive, I am truthful and people like you have a really hard time understanding the truth because you have been so indoctrinated with the republicans masterful use of the NAZI big lie – "Lie to them often enough, make it outrageous enough, and they will believe it" and like I said before you are the they and you have fallen for the lies, lock, stock, and barrel!

  4. I understand and agree with what you are saying. However when it comes to age, it may surprise you to know that he is the fourth youngest person to serve as President! Theodore Roosevelt was the youngest followed by John F. Kennedy, followed by Bill Clinton! Roosevelt, Kennedy, and Clinton were all far older in their thinking than their actual age may have indicated. I do think that Obama has a great intellect but is hampered by an opposition party that is doing everything it possibly can to obstruct Obama.

  5. lobel : nobama is trying allhe can to destroy Israeland America but his wife teaches children…not to eat hotdogs! Great ,that makes up for it! Socialism? you mean that doctrine which wants to RULE THE WORLD at any cost even at the cost of leavin the land scorched what nobama is very successful in doing! He went to Harvard? great! now he can destroy America to show what he understood over there with his very very small head and still smaller brain… Try to check what he eats for breakfast I mean his gulu gulu dirty eating so we can be proud of …such a great non american thing for president! If you like him you can keep it for yourself but do NOT force him into our throats!
