Elal website - can't book more than 4 people

Does anyone know why the ElAl website will not let you book more than 4 people on a single a reservation - such as a family with 2 adults and 3 kids, which would probably be a good 60% of Elal's passengers.

Seems pretty silly of them to not allow the bookings of so many people who might otherwise book directly through the El Al website.

Very true, this should be brought up with ELAL, especially since they're offering this new Family Plan that saves with every extra child that is booked!

I don't get them... their website sucks in general.... You can't even book all their destinations (Athena, Istanbul) for example!?

It does suck, though they are starting to upgrade the booking system, as you might have seen over the past few weeks. Still along way to go.

Well, not only is the online booking cumbersome to use and inflexible, but it also seems not to offer decent prices either. Most other airlines have cheaper prices for internet booking!
