Can you explain please?
His dad is the real investor, but doesnít have Israeli citizenship so he canít own El Al.

Is Turkish still the cheapest to book United economy awards to Israel?
Yes

Interesting, may be a glitch on their end. Does this work when you book on a different CC on an OTA? Shouldnít be any different, since the CC that shows on your itinerary is not your United card so it doesnít look like itís because of the split payment.

Up In The Air / Re: Infant turning Two Mid-trip

Can anyone confirm that British Airways will assign a seat on the return leg when an infant turns two mid-trip? Is this still in effect? Are there any other airlines that do it?
Does any other airline offer this on intercontinental flights? Looking to fly to Israel with my infant turning 2 mid trip. Any advice will be appreciated. (I know itís safer to book him a seat...)

Almost definitely illegal and may win a cc dispute as well.
Case law has established the right to fly half way on a ticket. As usual, the airlines are the ones breaking the law.
So can I ask them to check my bag halfway and tell them straight out Iím dropping the second leg?

Friend of mine told me his wife was flying OW,  LGA-MSP-YEG (Edmonton) on DL. In LGA they told her she can't get on because of COVID restrictions to Canada. She responded, so let me get off in MSP (her real destination). Gate agent made her buy a new ticket for LGA-MSP.
Is that legal? Does she have the right legally or halachically to dispute the charge for either ticket?
Totally legal and no grounds for dispute. They have no obligation to take her to MSP.
This is one of the basic mistakes of HC tickets.
She could probably get travel credit for her original ticket.

Up In The Air / Re: El Al to be nationalized again

Even to LTN?
Why would they want to compete with wizz and easyjet on that route?
Just wondering, what made you choose those 4 destinations? BCN, CDG and AMS both have LCC competition. Routes without that would include FRA, MAD, BRU, ZRH, MUC

I haven't heard anything but it sounds very likely.
Once they get rid of 10 737 that leaves them with 10,  which I would guess would be used for London, CDG, AMS, BCN
They use wide-body planes for LON

Not weird at all. LY is going to have to decide which routes to cut in the coming days.
UA just added ORD onto that list.
The question is why now? If they felt the route is profitable, they couldíve beat LY to it a year ago. Why wait till LY launches the route, and then try to force them out? Did LY sales help them decide itís profitable? Or is it because AA delayed DFW launch?

Dan, can you please post a roundup of airlines currently flying to Israel or restarting in the coming weeks? It was super helpful when you updated the cancellations, and would be helpful to know current travel options. Thanks
Is there an updated thread with all flights that are flying to Israel (for Israeli citizens)

Up In The Air / TLV-MIA OW from 99$ on TAP Portugal!

Some dates in August and September. Only non Shabbos date I saw was Monday, August 24th (and September 21st which is Rosh Hashana).
Price is without checked bags, which add 30$.
