Airlines operate hundreds of flights every month - even thousands or tens of thousands for the largest ones. It’s no surprise that a portion of these flights is delayed. El Al is no exception: some of the airline’s flights arrive later than planned at their destination.
When El Al could have avoided the delay but failed to do so, it’s only fair that passengers get compensated. That’s what the European law states. EC261 protects your passenger rights and requires airlines to pay up to 600€ per passenger in compensation for flight delays.

Some of El Al’s flights are also cancelled, leaving passengers into even more trouble. The airline isn’t always responsible, of course - in some cases, the decision is out of their control. But when El Al is responsible, passengers are once again entitled to compensation.
In the event of the cancellation of one of their flight, the airline is required to let the passengers know at least 14 days prior to departure. If El Al failed to do so and was responsible for the cancellation, you may be entitled to compensation under EC261.
And remember: if the airline cancels your flight, they also have to offer you a choice between a rebooking on an alternate flight to your destination as soon as possible (provided that seats are available) or the refund of your ticket. That’s independent to your right to compensation.
