Coming soon to El Al, Mehadrin flights

בקרוב באל על: "טיסת מהדרין" לחרדים

This means:
1. Separate seating (men in the front women in the back)
2. No stewardesses only male stewards
3. No movies

I am sure the wives are going to love this. They are now going to have take care of the kids for the whole 12 hour flight with little or no help from their husbands. After all, he can't go back to the women's section and she can't come to the men's section.

the husbands generally dont help anyway. at least now the wives won't have to also take care of the husbands!

Why can't the children be up front, in the mens' section?

I would assume they would make male kids be with father and female kids with mother. perhaps under a certain age would all be with mother, regardless of gender.

But the truth is that they should all be with the mother, because it is the mothers job to raise the kids, and obviously the husbands will be immersed in learning on their side of the plane. we would not want the kiddies to disturb them... [sarcasm]

Problem is that criticism of this move is misplaced. This is a business decision. Obviously there are enough Chareidi travellers to allow the "Purity of the Camp" folks to create such special flights.

The criticism will be valid when they then start insisting that ALL flights adhere to these standards.
