    El Al Airlines said it is laying off 200 workers after a steep increase in fuel costs hit its bottom line.

    Top executives also agreed to pay cuts, Reuters reported, after the airline announced a 51 percent drop in its third-quarter net profit.

    Jet fuel prices rose by 47 percent, raising the airline’s jet fuel expenditure from $160 million to $205 million in the third quarter, the Israeli business daily Globes reported.
