I’m modest, so fly me

By Simon Round, July 18, 2008

There are plenty of things to consider when booking an airline ticket. What is the best price? Does it fly direct to your destination? What is the food like?

And then there is: how does you airline rank for modesty? The Rabbinical Transportation Committee in Israel has ranked international carriers on modesty, particularly in the films they offer.

Flights that score best are those which screen no films. Those offering films on personal screens also score well, although the rabbis advise  a personal “foldable curtain”.

The most modest airlines are Aerosit and Malev. British Airways came in the second rank, whereas El Al was decidedly immodest.
