Business Class on El Al Airlines

While Business Class on El Al Airlines isn’t as nice as First Class on El Al Airlines, it’s still extremely comfortable. And as is the case with First Class, passengers flying Business Class on El Al Airlines have access to nice pre-flight perks at the airline’s King David Airport Lounge.

El Al Airlines is one of the carriers where you can see the difference between First Class and Business Class easily – from the seats in First Class that recline to a fully horizontal position and the plastic semi-shells offering increased privacy to the seats in Business Class that look essentially like Economy Class seats that are just a little wider, it’s very easy to tell the difference. The service in Business Class on El Al Airlines is still top-notch, but if you’re looking for the highest level of in-flight comfort you’ll spring for a First Class ticket.
