Will El Al win the "airline Oscars", held annually by the APEX organization? According to a document received by the Israeli airline's management in recent days, the company is nominated in six different categories in a survey examining the flight experiences of different airlines' passengers.


Some 60,000 passengers from all over the world took part in this year's survey, which included about 70 airlines from 37 countries. The respondents were asked to rate their flight experiences according to different variables, including food, service and in-flight entertainment.
