Ticket doubling is unlikely. But fighting the subsequent legal battles of P.C. (which serious and practical El Al doesn't have to worry about) would probably add 25% to ticket prices. El Al profiles the terrorists, and focuses less on the suspected, potential mechanism. They're a bit more adult about all this stuff.
