Can you share agency?

They asked me not to share it publicly.

Thanks for the update.

Wouldn't you BYOK even if you were told it's acceptable/reliable? After all that is @Dan's standing advice even in cases where KSML is known to be of high standards (from both Kashrus and quality standpoint)?

Of course. But it's always nice when you get a pretty good KSML as well.

I just spoke to a large kashrus agency. They were aware of the fact that the old hechsher was removed, but they had no opinion on the current one. They are looking into it and will give me an answer tomorrow.

Had some trouble getting through, but just got my very firm answer: BYOK.

So it only took around 12 hours on the phone, but I have a flight again.

Tried the TK TLV office a couple of times last night, got stuck on hold and dropped calls until I decided to pawn it off to @Moishebatchy. I figured that yelling in Hebrew will be more effective than yelling in English. He finally got through to them, and after an hour of acrobatics, got me confirmed on the earlier TK flight that I wanted.

Note that I said "confirmed", not "ticketed". For that I needed to go back to LM, which is where all good ideas go to die.

2 hours on the phone with them, conferencing in a LM rep, and LM supervisor, a TK rep, and a TK supervisor. Got absolutely nowhere. TK claims they made the change, and LM claims they don't see any change. (I was able to see the change in the TK PNR, FWIW.)

After 2 hours we give up and instead conference LM with the TK NY office. Which didn't pick up the phone....

In the end LM was able to rebook my on a regular *A flight that had award availability. Way less than ideal, but at this point I just ant to get there , so I'm finally confirmed and ticketed on LX.

....Whose "system is currently down", so I can't select a KSML 🤣

Indeed NYC office is quite responsive, but I found the TLV office to be even better. Not sure what their Friday hours are, but wonít hurt to send an email now to sales.tlv@THY.COM

They open at 8:30, so in 2 hours or so. I'll give them a call, hopefully I'll find someone who speaks some English.

NY office is very responsive via email. Nyc.ticketing at thy dotcom or call 212 261 0470
 TK has this rule with its points for partner awards only. So your routing involves partners TK rep is defaulting to their rules. I can almost guarantee its an Avianca issue, not TK.

I agree, Avianca is definitely the less competent of the two here. I'll call the NY office tomorrow when they open.

Why was the flight cancelled? Is it related to to IST airport switch?

Did you try the TLV ticketing office of TK? Iíve had good experience with them (email and phone).

No reason given.

It's a sad world where the Israeli's are the helpful ones... I'll give it a try, thanks.

TK flight, booked with LM. Flight canceled.

EIGHT FREAKING HOURS spent on the phone so far. Turkish says Avianca needs to fix, Avianca says Turkish. I finally conference them together, and get a new shpeil: I need to physically go down to the TK NY ticket office, they're the only ones who can touch the ticket.

SHOOT ME.

It's actually better than that, we're talking fresh, not pickled (though also the pickles have that קראך).

No no no... In KJ,

pickle = cucumber
zuerpickle (with the z and in one word): pickle
