A Brazilian legislator who was originally scheduled to fly to Israel from Rio via Paris aboard Air France’s doomed May 31 flight is crediting his insistence on flying El Al with saving his life. “We were granted a second life,” Jodenir Soares, an evangelical Christian pastor and politician who was traveling to an international conference, told The Jerusalem Post. “And I’m sure it’s because of the protection of the God of Israel.”

That, and the fact that El Al flies a fleet of aging Boeings instead of fancy new Airbus jets with Pitot tube problems.
