Just bought a ticket with AA that stops in CDG and then shows an AA flight number "Operated by EL AL" to and from TLV.  Does anyone know if AA counts miles for these flights because it was purchased from AA and has an AA flight number?
Also, does anyone know if the ELAL part would invalidate the fly to Europe promotion? (On the phone they said it counts for the promo, but I also emailed them and they said it wouldn't. That would be unfair.)

You won't earn AA miles on the LY part, though can prob earn QF.

Would be surprised if the phone rep is correct

Ended up earning miles for the whole thing, including the part operated by LY, and getting the fly business to europe promo and fly AA business long-haul promo. Also worked out to be very well timed, because AA is shifting to the revenue based system at the end of the month.

Yes, AA miles.
I got flight distance (2,043 each way) plus class and AA elite status bonus. I also got 2 EQM's per mile as well.
The JFK - CDG on AA portion gave distance (3,635 each way) + class + elite + fly business to eur (25K) + Long haul business (1k each way).

I'll confirm that there isn't. But the food is much better than what you'll get anywhere else.

I am flying in/out of BOSTON on El Al soon.  I do not think there is seat back entertainment on their 767's. Anyone flown that route recently to confirm?  Do they have streaming on those planes (like they say on their website) and if so does it actually work?
