Following the success of its tourist plus class in its 747 and 767 airliners, El Al Israel Airlines Ltd. (TASE: ELAL) is planning to extend tourist plus class to its 777 planes on its routes to New York, Paris, London, Los Angeles, and Hong Kong. In addition, business class passengers on 777s will have upgraded seats convertible into beds.

Sale of tourist plus seats will begin on April 19, 2015 on the New York route, and on June 17, 2015 for other routes.

Tourist plus seats, which are located in the front part of tourist class, offer more leg room than ordinary tourist class seats (86.36 cm, compared with 81.3 cm). In addition, the new seats can be put at a 30% sharper angle than the ordinary tourist seats (seven degrees, compared with five degrees). Special check-in counters at the airport will be established for the new tourist plus seats.

El Al frequent flyers with top platinum, platinum, and gold status, as well as holders of El Al’s new Fly Card, will receive tourist plus seats at no extra charge, subject to availability.

El Al announced today that it would expand the activity of its Sundor brand name with new regular flights to Nice and Naples, starting on March 29, 2015. Flights to Nice will take off on Sundays and Thursdays at prices starting at $450, and on Mondays and Fridays to Naples at prices starting at $400.
