Re: Booking El Al with Qantas - master thread
If I book an economy ticket on Qantas because business is not available, and then business becomes available, would i be able to simply pay the difference and upgrade?
you have to pay a change fee of 5k QF plus the difference

Re: Greece Master Thread
Whats the best site to book tickets from Tlv to jtr i can't find any good deals or normal times ?

Any direct flights between Crete, Santorini or Mykonos and TLV?


I went to crete for 5 days. I settled on crete as opposed to the many other islands mainly because of points hotel availability & ease of getting there.

Flights - I was first checking the standard Priceline kayak… the options weren’t great price wise & scheduling. I was then directed to 3 Israeli deal sites bo nauf (בא נעוף), hulyo (חוליו) & daka90. Bo nauf does not have a website they have an app. Every wed morn at 9am Israel time (iirc) they release deals which are available for 24 hours. Hulyo is an app as well as a website & pretty much every day they release new deals. Daka90 is like an Israeli Priceline - app & website. I ended up calling daka90 & booking over the phone with them & I was very happy with their cs. All these sites mentioned show flights which you won’t find on the standard Kayak Priceline etc. If you have more questions about this pm me I’ll be happy to share more details.

Just saw this, some more options to look into, although they don’t mention the deal sites I used which also have small Greek airlines that I couldn’t even find websites for.

Hotels - I looked at all the points hotel options on the different islands, Hyatt & Hilton both don’t have, SPG has a bunch of random & Marriott has 2 in crete. After going through the options, Domes of elounda seemed like our best choice for a few reasons. Flying direct into crete as opposed to other islands seemed the easiest & with a baby that was a priority, standard rooms were pricing at €850 & we would be paying just 45k Marriott for 4 nights & 5th night free. The standard rooms are suites with a balcony & private jacuzzi & we were hoping for an upgrade which we got to a room with a private pool as well (in my request for an upgrade to a room with a pool, I asked that I be given one high up so that it is completely private & nobody can see in - b”h they pulled through). If you’re going without kids it might be worth looking into domes noruz Chania which is an all adult hotel. Do a drop of research into domes of elounda & you’ll see all the great things about the hotel, pools, on the beach, all suites…

I’ll get another post out soon about what we did & try to add some pics as well.

Re: Booking El Al with Qantas - master thread
So expertflyer shows 3 seats for "Business points upgrade" but no seats for "Business award". And on Qantas all i see is economy.
So does that mean that if i book economy on QF, that I can upgrade the seat to business somehow?
To use R you must buy an upgradable (expensive) economy ticket, you can't upgrade an award

Re: SPG 2018 award category changes
So they have the dates, but the rate changes. What’s the best way of approaching this if for example I booked 7/22-26 but need 23-27?
Maybe call the hotel manager and tell them your actually coming 22nd at night but very late past 12am

Then call back a few weeks later and tell them your flights changed and you’ll be arriving the next morning and leaving 27th early


Etc. keep a follow up with one person at the hotel maybe they could accommodate you without modifying it.

Re: Greece Master Thread
Were the private pools in Domes heated?
Not sure. There definitely was no need in the summer.

But VIN said "Bombardier declined to comment on the report, while Neeleman was not immediately available for comment." so they must be more legit ;)
