Livni's Air Rage

From the NY Post (but reportedly also in Ha'aretz in Hebrew and NY Times)
November 21, 2008 --

ISRAELI foreign minister Tzipi Livni, who could become prime minister after February's general elections, threw a tempter tantrum aboard a recent El Al flight from Tel Aviv to Newark after she was seated in business class instead of first. "She really went berserk over the fact that there were kids near her," says a fellow passenger. "She kept grumbling about how she wanted to get off the plane, but couldn't because she absolutely had to be in New York for a meeting the next day. It was appalling." The Israeli consulate did not return calls.
We all know how difficult it can be in business class.

I guess Tzippi should hire this guy to help her out.

anonymous: why should she? she's only the foreign minister, not the prime minister.

9 hour flight? Let her go economy. If us Aussies can fly for 30 hours economy, why can't she so it for 9 hours?

If someone is expected to get off the plane and get to work, then business class isn't an extravagance.

If you're not paying for it yourself, you have no right to whine about it being biz and not first class, though.

They should have just told her that first class wasn't going to New York...
