Consider it a blessing that you got it in TLV, if was in the US they practically strip search you. My wife also had SSSS in TLV, they didn't stop us at all.
Happened to me in Paris. Wasn't fun

TLV-NYC
Super strange. Never had that ex-TLV ever. Probably SSSS although they also issue boarding passes with SSSS on them too so could be a technical issue. Let us know

Just checked in for flight tomorrow. Got the following message- “Thank you for checking in. Boarding pass will be provided at airport.” Does this mean SSSS?
What's the route?

Will @Dan be in FCO for Shabbos for the last opportunity to fly El Al's Queen of the skies?
He can even win a free ticket ;)

ELAL announcing improvements of their FF program for Silver level and above (Silver gets 1 point credit per $7 instead of 1 point per $8). Also lowering point requirements to attain/maintain higher tiers.
That's what I flagged on the other El Al forum the other day

anywhere to see on Elal.com if my reservation includes luggage?
and can I purchase luggage online? can't find a page.
If it's a ticket btw US and Israel then all tickets include a suitcase as there are no LITE fares on these routes. For other routes I'd give them a call

Earning switched to revenue https://www.elal.com/en/FrequentFlyer/EarningPoints/Pages/Loyalty-points-New.aspx
Is it just me or they decided to improve earnings rates from $8 to $7:1?

Flying El Al 787 from JFK to TLV in Premium Economy. Anyone know if Row 20 (last row in PE) is close to regular economy or is there a space in between? What seats would you suggest reserving? (2 people)
There is a wall between 20 and 21

Row 17 has slightly more space but you're right behind the bathroom.

Maybe I'm overthinking this but it sounds like if he didn't give away his companion seat to lots of random people, plus the thousands of no-shows, he would still have his golden ticket.

So just a bit חבל imho

Wow, sounds like they needed to find a way of getting rid of this revenue loss. I wonder how many more people have it.
According to the below article there were 25 AAirpass holders as of 2018, including Marc Cuban.

It's probably just a back of the envelope calculation based on the initial 28 clients, minus 3 known lawsuits

Looks like 4X-EDM (with the Jerusalem of Gold lively) is scheduled to take off from PAE at 10am this morning.
After this one the following four deliveries will be 788
