In other news - my son now has two flights booked for Israel - the question is will either or both be cancelled and/or will he even be allowed in the country.

They have for 37,5 with a stop as well

Normally, I'd be okay with a stopover. Last thing I want is him being allowed to go to yeshiva only to have Misrad habriut say - "Oh, you stopped over in Paris? Rome? " - sorry you can't come in.

Refundable.

When I try to book with Miles on Delta (or miles + cash to make up for the miles I don't have in my account) - I see this - it says nonrefundable...

Am I booking it wrong? Wrong type of ticket?

What if It's points plus cash - i.e. I don't have enough points to buy

Refundable.

I assume you are referring to ELAL or partner miles (or maybe the type of ticket) I spoke with Chase, and they told me my only two options were get a credit voucher for the named traveler (expiring 12/31/2021) or pay $270 to cancel.

Even if you book with miles?

Book with Miles on ELAL :)

In all seriousness, I booked with Chase points. That is what chase told me.

No airline has free cancellation. Only free changes or vouchers

That's my problem - I can get an elal credit in my son's name, or cancel for $270.

If I felt ELAL was going to bounce back, I might save that credit for a pesach ticket home, but is it more likely that they will resolve this by August, or that they won't  but resolve it later on?

I can't imagine ELAL bouncing back after 2 weeks of no flights. So I think I'll give it a couple of days.

That's a good thing when they don't rule the way people expect. Been a lot of that lately.

 I think it is a good thing, because, despite what we see as the judges 'biases' if you will, they clearly put time and effort into interpreting the law and constitution.

I think that another thing people often overlook when SCOTUS hands down a decision are the opinions within both the majority and minority. If the justices agree for different reasons, it doesn't mean that all similar cases will get equal treatment.

Wait till his flight is officially cancelled and get a full refund

Knowing El-Al, this won't happen until it's too late for me to get him on another flight. I am going to see if I can change the flight to my name without fees, and then if they don't cancel, take advantage of their covid policy

Of course this happens 48 hours after I buy my son a ticket. Spoke to chase (bought it with miles) - they told me that I can get an El-Al travel credit for my Son or pay the 270 cancellation fee.

Are those travel credits not transferable? Should I wait this out?
