Well here's a story I missed on Friday when I was madly trying to get work done before the Sabbath. It seems that Kadima's candidate for Prime Minister Tzipora Livni flew from Tel Aviv to Newark on El Al last week and threw a temper tantrum when they only sat her in business class and not in first class (Hat Tip: Jameel).
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." Israeli consulate rep David Saranga said, "We deny the story completely. The event never happened."
It's tough flying business class with the peons, isn't it? Especially on El Al where anyone who pays full-fare coach is seated in business class. I guess Livni never learned to be smooth like her mentor, Ehud K. Olmert, who keeps his cool even as he is about to be indicted.

By the way, Jameel has some great advice to Livni for future trips. Check it out.

I would have been more than happy to open the door for her and let her off the plane.

I was once on a flight and sat 2 seats away from Livni.

(her security guard sat next to me).

I was less than impressed with her demeanor on the flight.
