July 23 (Bloomberg) -- Mike Bloomberg, majority shareholder of Bloomberg LP and former New York mayor, spoke to reporters last night about his plan to go to Tel Aviv on Israel's El Al airline to demonstrate that it is safe to fly to the nation.
He spoke at New York's John F. Kennedy International Airport. The Federal Aviation Administration yesterday ordered U.S. airlines to suspend flights to Tel Aviv for 24 hours as Palestinian militants fired a rocket near the city's airport. (Video courtesy of WABC. Source: Bloomberg)
