We are flying out of Tel Aviv to Madrid using EL Al. I didnt realize how stringent the baggage policies are until saw the link below. Unfortunately, this is our last leg of a 18 night journey from London, to athens, to mykonos, to jerusalem, to tel aviv and we may be loaded with souvenirs or bought items.
Is El Al this stringent with carry on luggage (8kg or 17lbs max). We were hoping to check in one bag, and have a regular size carry on and maybe a back pack. Seems like second checked bag is $70 USD. Seems rather high.
Anybody have experience recently, to see how stringent these policies are? Do they actually weigh your carry on?
Thanks in advance,
