No UAE flags are this flight is not carrying any Emirati officals. Only U.S and Israeli officals.

Flying the UAE, US and Israeli flag from the Captain's sliding window after landing in Abu Dhabi earlier. You can find the pic in Gulf News...

Unlikely to be carrying Emiratis from Israel. Much more likely to be carrying them in the other direction. Very obvious really.

Pardon me, but what was the purpose of your comment, Fuel-Off? Was it to point out the clear bias of the BBC? (I think most of us know about that already, but thank you anyway)

Not sure how my observation of the ommission of the UAE flag at Ben Gurion airport has anything to do with your perceived bias of the BBC. They only televised what was on display. I was pointing out that given a flight from Tel Aviv to Abu Dhabi and all the symbology that it entails, one would at least represent the flags of all the countries involved at the departure. No malice intended, just purely an observation.

Me thinks you're looking for scandal when there isn't one to begin with.

Saudi has given permission for air space use by UAE-Israel bound flights and EL AL to use its air space.

Any issues with Middle Eastern staff not wanting to operate flights into TLV? Both in the front and the back? Even in the ops departments.

I think you're trying to look for a scandal which really isn't there. Turkish pilots fly into Greece and Cyprus, Greeks and Cypriots fly into Turkey (and go through their airspaces). While at my airline, Pakistani crew aren't allowed to operate into India (mostly due to potential AOG issues) and vice versa, they're allowed to transit the airspace of their 'adversary' with no issue. Taiwanese crew are allowed to operate into Mainland China and again, vice versa. As far as I'm aware, Ukrainian crew are still operating into Russia.

Unless restrictions based on crews' nationalities are imposed by the state, airlines generally just crew as required. As for the individual's own conviction in not participating in such geopolitically sensitive flights, that's their prerogative. But given how UAE airlines have a VERY dim view on sickness, calling sick for those specific flights would be done at their own peril.
