El Al takes passengers off flight to make room for deported foreignersThe Israeli flagship carrier El Al told 10 passengers they cannot board their booked flight to Kiev, after boarding a group of foreigners who had been denied entry into Israel.
At least 10 passengers were not allowed to board their El Al flight to Ukraine on Tuesday, because their seats were given to a group of foreigners who were being deported from Israel.
"I arrived at the airport three hours before the flight, but then I was told that I can't board the plane," said Yoav. "I told them I couldn't wait because I had a business meeting in Kiev, but they said they had no room for me. I was forced to wait for another flight in the afternoon."
El Al called the incident "unusual" and said the plane was overbooked "due to a request by the authorities to board a group of foreigners who must leave Israel immediately."
