Sara Netanyahu, who worked as an air hostess for El Al, was among those greeting the new plane at Ben Gurion Airport this morning.

The sixth Boeing 787 Dreamliner ordered by El Al Israel Airlines Ltd. (TASE: ELAL) landed at Ben Gurion Airport this morning, and was given the traditional greeting with jets of water.

The aircraft has a retro livery as a gesture to the Boeing 707 planes that served El Al in the last century. Among those present to greet the new plane was Sara Netanyahu, wife of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who arrived in El Al air hostess uniform. Sara Netanyahu worked as an air hostess on El Al during the Boeing 707 era.

This is the sixth of sixteen Dreamliners that El Al has ordered. The planes will gradually replace planes currently in service, and will substantially reduce the average age of El Al's fleet.
