United Airlines and Delta have rescheduled flights to and from Israel, reversing an earlier decision to cut back on the twice daily flights allowed by the Israel government’s air travel restrictions, according to The Jerusalem Post on Tuesday.

A spokesperson for United was quoted as saying that earlier on Tuesday the flights initially set to begin March 16 twice daily were restored.

Airline customers were said to have been thrown into “chaos and confusion” over the changes, which had initially been made by the carriers as a protest against Israeli rulemaking.

Meanwhile, El Al continues to fly its two daily scheduled flights, with no changes.
