El Al announced a new service class Tuesday, promising to provide passengers with a new flying experience at the very front of the economy cabin. The section will include improved seating with extra legroom (36 inches instead of 32), a 33-percent increase in seat-back recline, exclusive check-in counters and extra pampering on board. The new service class will offer between 34-40 seats, depending on the aircraft type. It will go on sale Wednesday, priced at $80 one-way for European flights and $150 on long-haul flights. Top Platinum and Gold members of El Al’s Matmid frequent- flyer club, as well as customers purchasing upgradeable tickets, will be eligible for these special seats when reserving, at no extra cost. Companion travelers of Top Platinum members will also be eligible at no extra cost.
