El Al Begins Operating Its First Boeing 777 In Commercial Service

Passengers are seen boarding the El Al Israel Airlines 777-200ER (extended range) in Everett, Wash., for the flight to New York following the delivery ceremony Feb. 22. The flight carried a few airline guests and a contingency of delivery-related El Al employees. The first revenue flight took off from New York's John F. Kennedy Airport Saturday night for Tel Aviv with a full load of passengers. El Al will have three 777-200ERs by the end of April, which they will fly on routes to New York, London and Hong Kong.
