In a letter to Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, Histadrut Chairman Ofer Eini on Saturday urged the government to reconsider approving an Open Skies Agreement with the European Union.

If passed, the agreement would introduce greater competition, which would theoretically bring down prices and force airlines to make difficult business decisions.

"I am appealing to you at this critical hour in an urgent call to the Israeli government to avoid making difficult and destructive historical decisions, with no substantive discussion on the matter and on the basis of incomplete information," he said.
