Crew members on Israeli national carrier El Al Israel Airlines Ltd.’s flights refuse to eat the in-flight meals provided by the company, according to documents filed with an Israeli court earlier this month. El Al is currently facing a lawsuit filed by former flight attendants earlier this year regarding expense reimbursements. As part of its defense, El Al claimed that it provides its flight crews with meals, but many crew members choose to avoid the benefit, believing "eating the in-flight meals consistently over long periods of time is unhealthy or that the food is high in calories.” A spokesperson for El Al told Calcalist that the dispute refers to employment terms, claiming any attempt to twist the issue around the quality of food served on the company’s flights is “driven by agenda.”
