    El Al passengers who seek a middle ground between economy and first class will soon be able to choose a new service – Economy Class Plus. The option is to be offered aboard in the airlines' Boeing 747 planes, and is expected to be added to its fleet of Boeing 767 and 777 planes as well.

    The new seating sections are being installed in front of the carriers' economy class seats, and are meant to allow passengers more leg room, deeper reclining chairs and several other perks not offered in coach.

    "We have been planning this step for over a year," El Al CEO Eliezer Shkedi said. "It's no secret that the state of the global economy is problematic, and that airlines are dealing with a series of challenges. This is why they must always upgrade their services. The guiding principle is to make the flight more comfortable for the passenger."
    The new service is to be launched on July 1. Passengers who have ordered the designated seats on flights scheduled prior to that date will enjoy the section for free.
