First Class on El Al Airlines

first_elalUsually when you think about flying First Class – regardless of the airline – you think about what’s in store for you when you get on the plane. The perks of a First Class cabin are undeniable, whether you’re on a long-haul flight or a domestic flight, but some airlines take the premium class experience to a whole different level by treating their First Class passengers like royalty before they even get to the airport. El Al Airlines is among the airlines that, if you’re traveling through one of their big airports, makes flying First Class even more luxurious.

The experience of First Class on El Al Airlines starts with limo service from your home or office to the airport, and continues in the airline’s King David Lounge – so you’ll be relaxed and ready for your flight by the time you board your plane.
