Global Relations: From Tel Aviv to Abu Dhabi

Today marks an important day in fronts of aviation , politics , and diplomacy as Israel looks to send its national airline El Al in their first ever direct flight from Tel Aviv to Abu Dhabi, in the U.A.E. Operated with a 737-900, it also will carry Israeli and American officials, including the US National Security Advisor Robert O’Brien and President Trump’s senior advisor, and son in law Jared Kushner.

Flew the journey on an El Al 737-800…ensuring a steep climb of 3500 fpm till FL290, before easing to 1000 fpm and then cruising at FL400 over Saudi Airspace. Descended parallel to Dubai Maktoum Int’l to grab this pic, before making the hard left to line up and land at OMAA
