Does this apply to flights between NY and Tel Aviv? Does El Al consider Israel to be part of Europe?
They are not flying blue

On The Road / Re: Hotel Compensation Master Thread
« on: February 27, 2020, 04:54:54 PM »
Had this incident last week and the below is part of the email i sent to GM from the hotel. what kind of compensation can i ask in this case?

We arrived to the SLS Beverly hills hotel around 12pm after a long and exhausting flight. The front desk was helpful with getting us early check in and directed us to the spa so we can wash up and relax there until our room gets ready. 
We were barely falling asleep, when at around 7:45pm the doorbell to our room rang. We figured it was a mistake and ignored it. But the person was persistent and rang the door multiple times. At that point, my wife told me to go check the door, but before I even had a chance to get up, I heard the door open. Someone just opened the door to my room while I was in my bed. I quickly yelled for that person to go out. 

I thought that perhaps there was an emergency and they wanted to evacuate the rooms, so I called the front desk and they stated that all is okay, and they will check the security footage to see who entered our room. 

Needless to say, we were quite anxious falling asleep after that fearing that a stranger will walk into our room. 

The next morning, we went to the front desk to inquire whether they had any information on the incident that happened the night before. The receptionist responded very nonchalant, “oh, yes, it was room service going around doing the pm shift, and when no one answered the door to your room they opened the door. When they saw someone in bed, they quickly left (?!).”

If a hotel provides room service in the evening, they tell me at check in, so I should be aware of that. 

Even if I didn’t get that notice, I had the PRIVACY option selected on my door so no one should bother me. (I had selected it for the morning.)

If the Saver Coach is priced at 55K miles for one leg, (instead of the base 42.5K) how many additional miles would need to be debited to book a plan B business saver? Would it be only an additional 20K?
As i understand your looking at the tlv route so if there is no saver at 42.5k you can't do plan B

Any update?
flight was within 30 hours from booking and was booked thru 1k account. it cleared a few hours later that night +10 upgrades

Please write in regular English. It's very hard to understand what you're writing.
Ok will try my best. as you can see you wrote from JFK-TLV is N/A when using miles thru VS or FB for premium cabins. which is not true as you can redeem for DL business class with FB for 72k or with VS for 60K when available

@Dan since when is JFK-TLV DL with partners not applicable ? With vs it's 60k and FB it's 72k

A half HT would be nice ;)

If you fly JFK-TLV with stopover in Lon and the first segment is DL taxes are only $51+72k in j

VS metal  JFK -LHR Business Class
VS points = 47,500 + 674.50
AF Points  = 59,500  206.57
DL Points (FL 46-138) 135,000 = 5.60
(DL metal has no YQ with Af points on this route)

VS Metal to JFK- TLV Business Class
VS points =  75,500 + 477.40
AF Points  = Does Not seem to be picking up connections online
DL Points = (FL 46-138) 85,00 + 45.50

AF Metal
VS points = PE 40k + 151.60

Some one, perhaps @Dan can put together a chart outlining all different options and possibilities.
On AF app it pulles up JFK-TLV

Dan asked thru which program he booked it so i answered that it seems like he booked a AF ticket thru VS. on the question which dates i answered that there is availability on mar 25   

On FB site or VS site? Dates?
Looks like on VS site and  i checked randomly for mar 25 and its aval
