EL AL ISRAEL AIRLINES IMPROVES FIRST AND BUSINESS CLASS COMFORT ON 747-400 AIRCRAFT
NEW YORK – March 14, 2014
– As part of an ongoing strategy to further enrich the passenger experience, EL AL Israel Airlines
is upgrading and redesigning premium class cabins on its 747-400 fleet, which are utilized on the New York (JFK)/Tel Aviv route. These enhancements will be completed by the end of this May.
Business Class passengers will enjoy more comfort and additional space between rows in the ergonomic bed-like seats, which have redesigned upholstery, an increased seat pitch, new seat cushions and additional leg support. There are a total of 47 seats, located on the upper and main decks.
First Class passengers will experience a more intimate and luxurious atmosphere that ensures privacy. First Class seats are flatbed and provide ergonomic support. As part of this upgrade, EL AL cooperated with Hollandia, a recognized expert in precision engineered sleep systems, to offer a unique mattress specifically designed to maximize comfort. The mattress is made with a special advanced material called Tempur, which is used by NASA for upholstering seats on spaceships. Tempur is known to be soft and pliable, providing the necessary support for the body. The mattress is covered with a soft and pleasing “aloe vera” finish for a pampering experience.
Both Business and First Class passengers experience enhanced in-flight dining featuring health-smart meal options, plus electrical outlets for laptops and power adaptors. Personal in-flight entertainment systems with an oversized screen offer a variety of programming in English and Hebrew. In all classes of service, award winning wine is served. And, EL AL continues to be the only airline offering First Class service on nonstop flights between the USA and Israel.
