These in particular are quite significant to me in my collection. These were given to me by a former flight attendent in EL AL who worked there for a good 30 years and in his travels he got these leaflets. The first two from the 60's when EL AL began to knuckle down on baggage fees which they are still tight today. The first is just a guide to weights and measurements, while the second says in French: "BAGGAGE, Are you travelling with 20kg ?". Quite quirky.
The last two are in my opinion very special. EL AL is the airline of Israel and during the 70's they were like an ambassador to the work encouraging tourism and pilgrimage to Israel and one of their main attractions was Kibbutz. A communal ideology that encourages agriculture and family in Israel. The last one is a soppy reason why I love it. It's just the colors of the aircraft at the time It personally makes me smile every time I see it not like the livery that EL AL wears today.
