Overall my experience was very positive. I only have one negative comment. It was not communicated that the airline counter would not open until 1:30, so when I showed up early for my flight, I was unable to check in and go through security.

Hate that months after purchasing our tickets, they changed our flight, requiring a 9 hour layover in Madrid. After flying all night, the last thing I wanted was to have to stay awake all day and not arrive in Tel Aviv until 10 pm.

Excellent flight.
