Premium transcontinental service

Your safety and the safety of our employees is our highest priority. To try and further limit potential exposure to COVID-19 on board, we made some changes to our inflight service.

  • We’ve moved to primarily serving covered or pre-packaged foods and sealed beverages.
  • We streamlined our services so we can serve more items in one step and decrease physical touchpoints.
  • Preorder meals and food for purchase are not available.
  • We’re also unable to offer special meals except for Kosher meals on flights between the U.S and Tel Aviv.
