El Al Israel Airlines Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner arriving at Toronto Lester B. Pearson International Airport (YYZ) from Ben Gurion Airport (TLV) on a fantastic Sunday afternoon 2019. Formed in 1948, El Al Israel Airlines initially operated a wide range of aircraft models and makes, however, the airline transitioned in the 1970s with a final goal of utilizing a modern fleet of solely Boeing aircraft, of which they have accomplished. Of course, this does not affect their relatively new fleet of 43 aircraft with an average age of approximately 10 years. The 787-9 in this image is one of 11 Dreamliners in El Al Israel's fleet (currently all -9 models) and was delivered to the airline in October 2018. There is one other 787-9 on order for the airline along with four 787-8s as of July 2019. Interestingly, the Israeli national carrier has a tradition of placing the name of a city in Israel on the nose of the majority of their planes. The size of this city is meant to correspond with the size of the aircraft on which it is placed. The city on the front of this plane's fuselage is Be'er Sheva, the eighth most populous city in Israel with roots dating back 4000 years, even though this aircraft has yet to be in service for one. In addition to the classic blue stripe running along the aircraft fuselage and the distinctive flag of Israel remaining prominently displayed on the tail fin, El Al has retained their classic logo with minor tweaks near the front of the aircraft, denoting the airline as one of only a few airlines that do not include an English title on their liveries.
