Passengers rights chart at ben gurion airport (israel)
 
Dear All,
my parents were traveling back from Israel yesterday on an Alitalia flight that had a huge delay because the plane was broken.
I have been told that, in this case, it is the Israeli law that has priority vs. Alitalia Passenger's rights rules.
I am trying to find the Passenger's Rights Chart of Ben Gurion Airport to check what there rights actually were. Any suggestions? Thanks

Safe travels.

EU 261 also comes into play since it's an EU airline google it.
Cheers

According to the Israeli law, when a delay in flight occurs, the airline must treat the passenger as follows:

* Up to 5 hours late: Covering expenses for food & drinks + 2 int'l telephone calls.
* 5 - 8 hours: same as 5 hours, but also grants the passengers the right to cancel their reservation and get a FULL refund.
* more than 8 hours: same as 5-8 hours, but the airlines must also compensate with 250-600 EURO at any case (including if the passenger decided to cancel the ticket) (the money range is because exact sum depends on exactly how many hours the delay was)
* over a day: same as "more than 8 hours" - adding that the airline must cover a stay at a hotel + transportation to/from hotel.
