There could be a myriad of reasons for this. It's the handling agent which is supposed to send somebody to operate the jetway. Maybe the handling agent had messed up the schedule. Maybe the employee forgot to finish his lunch break. Maybe he had a diarrhea and couldn't leave the bathroom. Maybe there were technical problems with the jetway.

These things won't change as long as RASHAT has a monopoly on running the airport. It's got nothing to do with ElAl.
The problems that you describe are tasks that are normally done by the handling agents, and not the Airport Authority staff.
