El Al operating between LHR-BCN?

Fri Apr 21, 2017 1:49 pm

Just scouring FR24, and noticed that 4X-EAN (Boeing 767) is operating BCN-LHR as LY394 and 4X-ELB is just getting ready for departure to BCN from LHR as LY291.

Unless I have missed something, why are they operating between these two countries / airports?

Thanks.

Why send EAN BCN-LHR and ELB LHR-BCN? Why not leave them as they are?

But why would they need the 744's capacity at BCN more than LHR?
