That may be because the CEO of Liberty Healthshare left to head United Refuah a few months ago. I finally took the bullet and signed up with United Refuah last night. They extended their charter member sign up promotion until May 31st, so no coshares for the first year. Only the $500 deductible. $219 a month. Way better deal than $185 a month for a catastrophic plan with a $7,350 deductible that doctors don't take anyways.

How is the plan working out for you?

Giving me zero too

The flights are close to $200 more on Expedia than booking with Norwegian directly. Is that common? Maybe I will wait and see if it changes.
For that price difference, I may be better off buying individual pieces of luggage, since I technically dont need 2 per person for the family. The only thing temping is the assigned seating...

Any Norwegian ticket booked through a GDS (the system that TA's use) will come with 2 pieces of checked baggage free seat selection and kosher meals.
Its usually about $60 more (each way), not double the price.

If you book through Expedia it should be the same as a TA, double check with Norwegian after you book (can always cancel within 24 hours) and report back.

thank u! i will try that. is 60 more per leg or total?

Another newbie question, I see 2 adult tickets are available at a certain fare, but when I add the third the price jumps up. Is it a problem to book one person on a separate reservation? A 13 yr old child?

They will NOT rebook you on another airline in case of a delay. I had a family who flew a couple of weeks ago from TLV to EWR via BCN. The flight from TLV was delayed an hour (in advance of the flight). They would not rebook them in TLV on another airline (even though it was quite clear that they'll miss their connection), and when they did miss the connection, they just rebooked them on the exact same Norwegian flight the following day leaving them in BCN for over 24 hrs.
I believe Aeroflot is somewhat better, though they don't linger far behind....

Its a mazal, I guess. Did they compensate them for their time there?
How long do you think is an ideal stopover time?

Sometimes. Not all tickets are created equal. Watch out and make sure you know what your booking before you book.

Some Norwegian fares come with hardly anything. Also the suitcase weight can be only 20 Kilo which is 44 pounds. They are also known to weigh you carry on and heard stories of people having big problems when Norwegian only decided to weigh their carry on the  second leg of the trip.   

i dont need that much luggage per person , since we will be traveling with a number of travelers, as long as i know in advance. i am talking abt the cheapest fare online. what do they allow for hand luggage? and what advantage do i have using a travel agent?

Depends what you need out of customer service but probably better than SU.

Whats SU?
I'm saying do they generally run on time, kid friendly, do they have individual screens and bassinets?

I would choose Norwegian over Aeroflot. If you book through a TA, you get 2 bags, Kosher meals and seat assignments (even in the first row/exit seats!)

Oh really? How is their customer service?
