Re: Fly TLV-NYC for 498$ on air France
It's a good deal, I saw it yesterday.
Not that many visitors from Israel to make it worth posting every ex-TLV deal.
just remember how many people were at the Jerusalem DDS!

Re: Elal doesn't fly on Shabbos?
But they抮e doing it regardless of you....
so what? There is an איסור הנאה of a מלאכה done by a Jew on shabbos במזיד. Especially when his intention is to make money from it. Same as electricity on shabbos in Israel, where the only heter is that they also work for פיקוח נפש. Sorry if I went off topic...

Air France KLM TLV-NYC for 550$ Sample dates 1/31-2/4 bookable on Expedia and Priceline. May be a few $ cheaper with long stop in AMS on the way back.

TLV-NYC in summer for 660$ Available on Iberia/BA/AA. These flights only come up on Expedia/Orbitz if you search specifically for American Airlines, otherwise, flights come up for 700+. Sample dates: 6/25-7/24, 7/19-8/9, 7/23-8/26. I also found 666$ on Air France, sample dates 6/25-8/12, but many more available. Only bookable on It's more expensive on OTA's.

Re: Rare Award Space Master Thread (No discussion, alerts only!) Not sure if this is considered rare. Was just doing a random search on Flying Blue, and saw DL direct TLV-JFK for 29k miles on 2/19 in economy. There may be some more dates available.

Re: Random airline-questions.
So what do I do about checking in? I can抰 check in online without the plus 1抯 passport info. Should I ask them for it or no need to check in online (carry-on only).
why don抰 you make it up?

Re: El-Al ticket cancellation ?
If I purchase an El-Al ticket at 10 PM how long do I have to cancel it?
And is there somewhere I can find all airline companies cancellation policies?
If ticket is originating or going to the US, 24 hours. Otherwise, nothing. From very unfortunate experience. (There抯 a 5% cancellation fee under the Israeli law, up to a few days after booking. If flight is more then 14 days away)
All US airlines will only give 24 hours when you book directly with them. OTA抯 like Priceline/Expedia give you till the end of next business day.

AF/KL and VS codeshare Air France, KLM and Virgin Atlantic recently started an extended codeshare. You can even book a full itinerary on VS metal with AF/KL. What抯 great about this is that on many dates and routes I priced between the US and London, booking on AF/KL can be a few hundred $ cheaper! (Google flights will give you the cheapest booking option). What抯 even better is that the flights that are booked on AF/KL as economy light without assigned seats or checked bags, are coming up on the Virgin system as classic economy with seats and checked bags! This is definitely a glitch, so enjoy it while it lasts...😄

Re: How to get from (Toronto) YYZ to TLV?
I have Chase UR or Marriott points. I understand they can be transferred to Qantas and used on El Al. But using UR seems like a better value, at 1.25 redemption (have CSP) comes to about 60k UR whereas it would be approx 75k Qantas at a 60k:25k transfer ratio for Marriott points . Any input? TIA!
Definitely book through chase UR.

Re: Random airline-questions.
If an airline goes bankrupt and cancels flights you purchased before you leave or while you are on the trip, what recourse do you have, if any?
Are there any credit cards with insurance that would cover rebooking in such an eventuality?
You can dispute the charge with any CC and they抣l refund you since the airline won抰 respond.
Regarding rebooking, I know Chase Sapphire Reserve doesn抰 cover a case of bankruptcy. Not sure about AMEX

Re: Random airline-questions.
Does anyone know if there's an airline flying from NY/NJ to MCO/DAB area with a stop in CHS?
There are no nonstops from CHS to MCO/DAB and it抯 not a hub of any airline so would definitely not be a stopover.

Re: Israel Reopening To Foreigners
You can be born in Israel and not have citizenship?

I know several people who were not born in Israel (their parents were both Israeli citizens also not born in Israel) and had Israeli citizenship forced upon them.
My 6 siblings and myself were all born in Israel and didn抰 get citizenship (ranging between 28-8 years ago). You just need to be proactive about not getting it.

Re: United eliminating change fee on domestic flights
I booked a flight booked for November.
Now the price is lower.  I set up to change my flight, but the refund will be $0.

Is this right? I have a Basic Economy ticket.  I can't get a refund for the difference?

Would I be able to cancel for a full refund?
You can cancel and request a ETC (needs to be done over the phone), then rebook the cheaper ticket. The additional funds will stay on your ETC.

Re: Random airline-questions.
What's the advantage of that?
A. If you don抰 know the DOB at time of booking.
B. If you want to book an unaccompanied minor, you can book them as an adult and change the date later.
C. If you want to book a seat for an infant, many websites don抰 give you that option, so you book them as a child and change the date later.
There were some more cases I抳e done it, but these are the ones I remember at the moment.

Obviously. But can they be used for any sea world park? Do they all need to be used at the same visit?

Re: Booking El Al with Qantas - master thread
They offer free cancellations on award bookings through 1/31/21. I booked a random award from MEL to SYD and will cancel in January. That should extend them for another 18 months.
Update: worked.
You can book and cancel an award for free to extend your miles for 18 months.

Unfortunately seems like a possibility according to this article where health officials are saying it should be closed for a month:
What does hamodia say that wasn抰 quoted here yet?

Not looking good

@Dan, did you have any inside information?

February 03, 2021, 07:49:16 AM
Nope, but my original post on the closure asked if it would open before March.
That抯 what I mean. When you originally posted that I thought you were crazy. At the time, most of Israeli media was saying a week or 2.

Amazing the koach of an עין רע
I apologize for the harsh words. My mother needs to urgently get to the US, and I抳e been getting calls and messages from many people I know that 揅haim V抍hesed says they arranged emergency flights but they抮e in fact unbookable, definitely not by travel agents as they claim.
I wrongly let out my frustration on an amazing organization that does so much to help Klal Yisroel.

February 11, 2021, 08:58:04 AM
Who denied them, check in agents or passport control? Also, did they initially show their Israeli passport or they showed their foreign passport but they checked to see if they are Israelis?
Any of the Covid tests would have your Israeli ID# on them, so that抯 a giveaway.

Re: TAP $399 EWR to TLV RT (or vice versa) in June (limited dates)
Have they even been giving refunds when they cancel flights?
I had tickets with them booked with Chase points for March 2020 that were canceled. Chase refunded the points after several calls. A few weeks later, TAP emailed me a link to claim my voucher so I抦 definitely not complaining :).
Officially they抮e offering refunds for flights they cancel, but don抰 have personal experience with that.

Re: Random airline-questions.
They抮e offering free cancellations on awards, so you can book a random ticket (MEL-SYD) and then cancel it to extend your mileage expiration.
You can cancel till 2/28/22, so I抎 do it as late as possible to extend your expiration.

Re: Booking El Al with Qantas - master thread
I just realized that I lost 720k Qantas points. When there was big bonus to transfer from Amex a while back, I took advantage thinking that I'd be able to use on Elal often, I never used them and now I logged in to see they expired 12/31/2020
I saw the trick from here on how to add car rental points, not sure I am eligible for that.
If I was, would it still work?
If not, is there any hope?
Thanks in advance
You can try to call them to get them reinstated. Back in December they were emailing links to extend the miles by 6 months. If you can extend them, book and cancel an award for free by February 22 to get another 18 months.
