Haredi air?

Some haredi businessmen in the USA are claiming in setting up a haredi-owned airline to compete with El Al, which some haredi leaders are threatening to boycott over a decision to conduct some flights on Shabbat. As noted in the JPost:

El Al stands to lose a significant chunk of its clientele if, as is expected, the boycott is called. Haredim make up some 20 to 30 percent of passengers on certain flights to the US and Europe. They are among the most faithful clients who continue to fly even during difficult geopolitical situations in Israel.

In theory, El Al could offset some or all of the losses by flying on Shabbat.

Imagine that. Individuals could decide for themselves whether or not to fly on Shabbat.
