According to this it's only for travel between Feb 1- April 15, does anyone know where you can look to see the "official" terms?
Forget it I see lucky wrote that as well.

Up In The Air / More Chase travel by expedia issues
« on: January 28, 2019, 08:46:29 AM »
I posted this earlier on ddf, curious to hear if what I am asking for makes sense.

Here is what happened -
I booked a flight for a family member through the chase portal, I needed to make a change to the itinerary, called chase who told me I need to speak directly with Expedia, they transfer me to Expedia, I speak with an agent change the booking, PAYed a $211 change fee, my relative shows up at the airport and the ariline claims she is not ticketed and was a no show to the first flight, deny her boarding and refuse to reissue a ticket. Now I have a screenshot FROM the airline`s website with a ticket number! Airline still claims that they can't help since it's not ticketed. Expedia amazingly claims I need to speak with chase despite the fact they made the change and charged for it on the reservation. Chase claims I need to speak with Expedia. What I am left with is a missed flight a change fee and no one who is willing to help. So mad, what can I do? (today's flight was already missed). I now see the change fee was taken off, even though it initially appeared on the account, which obviously doesn't help me. To top it off spent an hour and a half being passed around by Chase travel agents who conceded there was an "agent error" but ddn't know/didn't want to help with anything, after I was hung up on at 1:28 I filed this complaint with the BBB

A flight booked with Chase Travel was changed and confirmed by Expedia (where Chase travel directed me to), in reality did not ticket and denied board Nov. 20 - Booked with Chase Travel with Ultimate Rewards points a Round Trip flight. NYC-TLV Jan 21 - outbound, Feb. 7 Inbound. Jan 21. Needed to change the flight, called Chase Travel who claimed I could only make a change with Expedia even though I had booked through the Chase travel portal. I spoke at length to an Expedia representative who changed the outbound flight to Jan. 27th confirmed for me a special meal and I took a screenshot from the airlines website of the new ticket. The cost of this change was $211 (despite the fact that I could not get to the airport for weather related issues). Jan 27. - arrive at airport to find out that the ticket was never confirmed and a reservation had been made but not ticketed. Spent a while showing the desk agents the screenshot they insisted that the there was no ticket in the system. I then spent an hour speaking with Expedia on the phone who claimed they could not get the reservation up, so could not help. Jan 28. Called Chase Travel spent an 1:28 on the phone (on top of the 5 hours wasted going to Airport). The reps told me that it was an agent error and that I now have airline credit for LOT for the cost of the ticket (~$750), I said that I needed a flight which they claimed they would help, was on hold for a while, got transfered a bunch of times where I needed to explain everything again, long story short no one was willing to help me and I wasted over 6 hours of my time (to think that a change cost me $200! but my time is not worth much to them). Was denied boarding and have credit to an airline I do not wish to fly. Basically they made a mistake in the booking and do not want to own up to it.

Your Desired Resolution:
I would like a full refund for the ticket price valued at ~$750, full refund of any change fees $211, difference of fare of newly purchased flight ~$250. Compensation of $500 for cost of transportation to airport and back and wasting my time.

Coming Soon: Jerusalem - Tel Aviv Fast Train To Run 24 Hours A Day:

In Hebrew:

Know I'm confused. Are they shortening it to one per hour or they are making night hours also?
Maybe at night one per hour but they are twice a half hour during the day?
Your second link is unrelated it's about a new road that was opened (437).
Re the train, it's not really to tel aviv it's to the airport and they are expanding hours but still have issues. Meaning the schedule will have now longer hours which will also be subject to the malfunctioning of less hours...

The article mentions how they want to cut down the train to once per hour. However the schedule still shows the same every half hour.
It's not a specific article, it's all the articles about the train, I wouldn't call Israeli media the most reliable thing that ever happened...
In any event if you look at the first article it says:
"רכבת ישראל הודיעה הבוקר (ג') כי בשל "תקלה באחת הרכבות בקו המהיר"
Stating one of the trains the implication being there are multiple trains.

its the same train that goes from the airport to Jerusalem and back, nowhere else
Pretty sure there are 2 trains otherwise they could not maintain the schedule if you look here you can see that the article speaks of multiple trains operating this route.הקו_המהיר.tag

Is the train going all the way to Tel Aviv these days or only goes from airport to Jerusalem?
Just to Airport, you can switch at Airport and go from there to Tel Aviv, will take about an hour depending on where you need to get off.

Up In The Air / Re: Lot air switched planes to euroatlantic

Anybody with experience with this? How bad will it be? In coach
Generally they use the 787 which as Dan has written repeatedly is actually worse in coach, older planes (the likely candidate in this case) generally have more legroom and are better for coach. As far as in flight entertainment and service that's another story...

Seconded.  I think you have more TLV-based readers than you think - whether temporary or permanent.  Either way, a good deal is a good deal, so why not post?
If you already want to be more accurate you might say more JLM based readers  :) and then again TLV is not in Tel Aviv...(although there are likely very few DDF`ers in Lod)
