What airline should you fly on II?

Today's Yated Neeman had a follow up ad which listed more recommended airlines. For the curious, US Airways is the recommended airline for flights in the USA.

Of course, if you must fly on a different airline that has movies you can get your handy mechitza by calling 057 3155613.

Movies on planes require you to wear headphones to hear the sound.

So what's wrong with not putting the headphones on and engrossing oneself in a good (kosher) book while the movie's playing?

And don't me the same guy who can chockle and wave for 5 hours straight at a time on Yom Kippur can't ignore a 2 hour movie.

You're making a good point. I, too, sometimes think that the Yated is written for idiots and children. For example, the current tummel about Moshe Tendler going on to the Har Habayis: he's been going for the last nine years, and everyone knows that there are plenty of people who are mattir going up there on the basis of archeological and halachic information. But certain gedolim were pressured- by the government, as a matter of fact- to make a statement, because the government wants to discourage Jews from going up there and making trouble-- and so the brainless automatons at the Yated started squawking like a Black Forest Cuckoo Clock. This all doesn't bother me. What really bothers me is knowing that everyone who reads it knows that it's a rag, but they enjoy having a wild-eyed, brainless, outlet-for-the-yetzer hora rag. It's a fraud that its victims knowingly participate in.
