Thanks for that! Are the charter flights loaded now for the summer time? Or only 2 weeks out?

For example, anything direct from FAO in Portugal or any of the Canary islands?
Direct charter flights are usually to the Greek or Italian islands. Those flights load a few months before the flights.

Yup, that was my plan as well. How long was the presentation time? Did you have kids?
I wonder what percentage of people wind up buying a timeshare?
Itís a 1 on 1 presentation, but was not painful for me at all. I was actually interested how timeshares work so I asked lots of questions. When it came to the bottom line, I said I usually use CC points for hotels so anything they would offer is over my budget. (They start with asking how many vacations you take a year, and then try to sell you a package that would ďsaveĒ you $. I came with 5 month old and 4 year old. That was a great help because the kids were disturbing all the time  ;). They have a playroom with babysitting for kids but bĒh it was full when we came. We saw a few other frum couples there (probably all came through DD).
I would really love to see how the agent will handle dan😄 heíll probably give up after 5 minutes!

I got the offer that was on DDMS in May. Got 4 nights and 20000 points for 199$. Then they started adding offers for booking during the summer. They ended up booking my at the Hilton bonnet creek and adding 150$ park credit and 100$ future Hilton credit. The presentation itself wasnít as bad as I thought. I just said politely it doesnít really fit for me because I usually donít pay cash for hotels, only use CC points.

So what is the best way of booking for this upcoming summer? Waiting 2 weeks out is not an option
You would find these flights on Israeli travel sites like Gulliver.co.il and Issta.co.il

Check Hulyo
Hulyo wonít show you flights more then a week or 2 out. Most European islands are served by charter flights that wonít come up on google or Priceline/Expedia. You would find these flights on Israeli travel sites like Gulliver.co.il and Issta.co.il

Does anyone know if the two bonuses of 20% more (from amex and Qantas) are stacking? shouldn't it have applied already if it will?
I was thinking the same. Last time they posted by now

Is there a mileage account to credit to for wizz air flights? is there a wizz air rewards program?
I donít know if any European low cost carrier have rewards programs (thatís why theyíre cheap!).
Even American LCCís only have their own programs but donít credit to others.

Does it help if I call American Airlines and ask them to combine the two tickets?
Itís impossible to combine tickets. The most theyíll do is note you have another reservation

I have a AA tickets booked with avios. Iím hoping for a schedule change that will allow me to cancel. How much of a change would allow me to cancel?  Who would I need to contact for the cancellation? Would I have to call AA first or Just BA? Also, would I have to cancel before the departure time or can I do it a few hours later? Any help is greatly appreciated.

If youíre thinking of that already, why are transatlantic one way flights sometimes more then a round trip??
And why are flights originating in Israel cheaper then from the US?

Why is it legal for airlines to increase the price for flights that are round-trip in the same week.

The same flights when staying a weekend are often up to half price.

Thoughts?
The obvious solution (based on your other thread) is, when you need to fly more then once, book one ticket originating here and returning at the end of the 2nd trip, and another originating in TLV and returning for your 2nd trip.

Question was shouldn't this be illegal in some way?

I mean they are selling the same items for different prices based on profiling people for what they can afford.

Sure. Call the airline
