El Al Flight "Turned To Shambles"
Forget who let the dogs out... who
put them on the plane?
It seems a group of unruly kids turned Tuesday’s El Al
flight from New York to Tel Aviv into what Israeli media describes
as a "total shambles."
During the flight, witnesses said young adults in two
Jewish-American religious groups started running wild throughout
"I have never seen anything like this," said a cabin crew
member. "Kids... were totally out of control, behaving like
hooligans. They were smoking on the flight, and drinking large
quantities of alcohol. Some of them bought a bottle of whiskey from
the duty free, and drank the entire bottle, arriving in Israel
The flight attendant said many of the passengers behaved
inappropriately, making out on the seats. One particularly
enterprising couple was caught trying to have sex in the restroom,
but were interrupted before being designated official members of
the "Mile High Club."
