Up In The Air / BA wet lease from Air Belgium
« on: January 31, 2019, 05:23:06 PM »
Iíve noticed BA flights from EWR to LHR will be operated by Air Belgium for April-May. Anyone have info or experience with them? Should I prefer BA metal? (From their website, it looks like a they only have seasonal flights from Brussels to Hong Kong. They probably lease the planes when theyíre not in use)

United flight Sunday from JAX to EWR was delayed at gate 45 minutes due to weather and another 40 minutes due to a mechanical problem. That caused me to miss my connection to TLV by literally 2 minutes (Even though gate agents in Jax and flight crew promised they would wait for me in Ewr, and refused to let me off the plane when the technical issue came up) They wouldnít rebook me on partners via Europe so I had to wait in Newark for almost 7 hours.
What can I expect? And whatís the best way to get it?

What happens when they check his Id and it doesn't match?
Put in a different d.o.b., then call the airline to change it. Iíve done it many times and always works

Up In The Air / Re: EL AL TLV-NYC from 470$ One way April-May
« on: January 09, 2019, 06:38:38 AM »
They had one way fares in the past year to Boston.
True, and Miami. But never NY.
Also, this seems to be very specific dates.

Up In The Air / EL AL TLV-NYC from 470$ One way April-May
« on: January 08, 2019, 10:44:54 PM »
Very strange, OW fares are 490 for 4/17-18, 470$ for 4/22-24, 5/2-3, and 5/5-9.
All other dates are 1882$. I never saw OW fares on this route. Maybe they have empty flights around pesach, just guessing.
Note: this is only for TLV-NY, not for the way back!

So what do I do about checking in? I canít check in online without the plus 1ís passport info. Should I ask them for it or no need to check in online (carry-on only).
why donít you make it up?

Ex-WAW is Stogel cat food, don't know about TLV.
Donít understand why any airline uses them! They should be banned by all religious passengers till airlines stop using them!

FB has lower requirements for gold, but depends what fare class you're booking and who's giving more for that class.
FB and DL give revenue based earning for their own flights and distance based for partners, so really depends on how much youíre paying compared to the distance. If youíre booking on DL or AZ, I would definitely say FB. Their redemptions are also much better.

Sales under new format to start on 01/15 for flights from April.

Still shows the blue card for me. Sent in the email on December 17.
Same here. Apparently, they manually review each request, and werenít working for the last 2 days.

I already answered you. I'd like to see a picture of the United flight the same time. I beg you if you can PLEASE find me a seat on one of the El Al flights leaving NYC today to TLV. They are all OVERBOOKED!
The last 2 weeks of December are probably the least popular dates flying Ex-TLV in the entire year. Come Jan 1, and the flights are sold out once again. In addition to travel being slow ex-TLV, they even added flights from TLV this week to have more capacity from the US to TLV. This is typical fake-news, leaving out the details from all around....
I totally agree. Iíve flown a 2 am flight from Rome to TLV on Alitalia with 5 people on board. They add these flights when thereís high demand ex-TLX
