EL AL First Class Trip report ... and the food ...

This is a trip report of one of EL AL's last First Class flights. part from finding the aircraft and seats rather "ancient" his main complaint is about the awful quality of the food served (this is ex-TLV).

Interesting, I could only watch a minute or two. That person seems like someone suffering with personality problems and very limited self awareness.

You mean Brian Kelly (The Points Guy)? What kind of personality problems do you detect in him?

Well watching a few moments of the video contains textbook examples of cluster B traits, its so completely over the top.

Well, it is not entirely far fetched to say the TPG is narcissistic )))
That being said, LY's F product is sub-par, compared to any decent J product today, not to speak of F.

I flew El-Al's First Class and the catering was not amazing, but it was edible, really it was the Flight Attendants who made the flight, my wife and I had flown UNITED on the way over and the difference was night and day.

On UNITED, I had the audacity to ask for another glass of wine, only to be told (and I am not making this up) that it works like grade school, I can only have a refill once everyone else has had a chance to be served.

We were actually afraid of flying El-Al due to reading a bunch of horror stories, but honestly the entire process from the interview to the lounge to service on-board was all perfectly fine and with regards to security everyone was far more polite than any interaction I have had with TSA since their inception.
