Breakfast in First Class – Segev’s Choice
From the Chef – New First Class Breakfast – Chef Segev’s Breakfast Choices
"For quite a while I have been thinking about introducing special flawless service for our First Class passengers, the kind of service not always found even in first rate restaurants. Thanks to EL AL's active support, we created a diversified meal to please all palates – from those who favor cheeses to those who savor caviar.
We decided to use new glass jars of various sizes and tapas-ware for serving the assorted dishes, for a creative and colorful display.
For one of the main dishes, we decided to offer a piquant Israeli shakshuka served in individual pans.
Our principle aim was to develop a rich innovative menu, as in a restaurant, distinct from that of the other service classes, one that makes the passengers say WOW, one whose choice of foods says that every item served is the very best and of the highest quality, which I personally selected for our First Class".

Honor in the Sky
Gewurztraminer Wine, a product of Carmel Wineries served in First Class, ranked first in a recent competition among airline wines, another achievement for El Al. The wine had been chosen by El Al’s premium class passengers at a special tasting event held a year ago, and since then has been served to El Al passengers in First Class.
The Wines on the Wing competition, sponsored by the prestigious travel magazine Global Traveler, the Magazine for Luxury Business Travelers, was held in August 2011.
Twenty-eight airlines participated in the competition, including South African Airways, Etihad Airways (United Arab Emirates), Lufthansa, TAP (Portugal) and others.
Boutique Beer – Alexander Beer in EL AL’s Premium Classes
Passengers in EL AL’s premium classes can now enjoy Alexander Blonde, a light ale that’s suited to the Israeli weather and temperament and perfect for long or short flights.
Boutique beers do not go through filtering and pasteurization processes and thus retain their fresh taste. They are generally brewed for local consumption because they have a shorter shelf life than commercially produced beers.
The boutique beer industry has been growing in Israel in recent years, as it has in other countries all over the world.
