B-G flight schedule disrupted by loading delays

The flight schedule at Ben-Gurion International Airport suffered serious disruptions and delays on Sunday evening due to delays in loading and unloading passengers' luggage. The setbacks lasted at least two hours, irritating passengers. The head of the airport workers union said the delays were not a result of sanctions, but rather a shortage of human resources when the workload got overwhelming. Flights were expected to return to normal soon.
