They just emailed me back offering us each a free roundtrip or 3800 Shekel compensation.
Which one you taking?

Most likely the free flight, provided there aren't too many restrictions.

Just got notification that TLV-YYZ on Aug 15 is switched to Privileged so they're still doing it.

They have given me a hard time with two bags, but have never actually stopped me. They just say something about "next time you can only bring one carry-on".

And do they answer phones?

Daughter is flying on El Al BOS-TLV end of August. Can someone tell me how to find out if flight will be El Al metal and El Al service vs. Privilege Style? Dan published a table a few months ago (see link below) but I don't know where it came from (el al website but I can't find) or how I can find one for future flights.  Thanks.

Got stuck on 777. Is the 1st row in J (the bulkhead) any better than the rest of the seats?

Just flew tlv to newark.  Stewardesses were extremely pleasant and friendly.
Both my entertainment system and my daughters did nit work.  Stewardess tried to reset but did not work.  Who should I write to to complain and what compensation is possible?
