JERUSALEM — The US Federal Aviation Administration's suspension of all US carriers' arrivals and departures from Tel Aviv's Ben Gurion Airport hit Israelis like a punch to the gut. On Wednesday night, when the FAA renewed its directive for a further 24 hours, only 27 out of the hundred carriers that normally serve the bustling airport were active, and the transportation reporter for Israel's Channel2 news referred to the impasse perhaps hyperbolically as 'a national crisis, with tens of thousands of Israelis stuck abroad.'
