If I recall correctly, there is a family that arranges kind of a kosher catering.
No hechsher though.
Is it reliable?
Can you PM me the info?

Thanks!

@Dan I think the real value here is the fact that you get back almost as many miles you spend booking the trip so you end up with an almost FREE trip!
That definitely beats paying $500 for ELAL with no bags!
Besides some dates on ELAL are significantly more then $500.

Additionally, the flights offer a free stopover option in Rome for as long as you want so you can build a side trip into it.

Thanks. The verbiage on their website indicates otherwise so thanks for confirming. "Although Basic Economy reservations are not eligible for changes within 24 hours, they are still eligible for a full refund if you cancel within 24 hours and you made your purchase one week or more prior to the original scheduled departure flight."
Not enforced!
I have done this multiple times.

I literally clicked pay and then boom, price goes up
Trying again
On United.com?
I already booked a few of these.

There is a trick I use sometimes with United.com where you select "other form of payment" and choose "Pay in person". Choose either airport counter or united ticket office and click on the purchase.
Effectively, this places the ticket on hold for about a day and issues a PNR number.
Once you have the PNR number, you can find your booking under "My trips" and click purchase now. You can then pay by CC without the price changing.

Up In The Air / TLV-NYC on AZ from $430 round trip all the way to JULY!
« on: October 27, 2019, 05:36:48 PM »
Alitalia flights from TLV-JFK are pricing from $430 RT all the way to the summer!
The latest departure I saw was June 30.

The trick is that the flights are all carried out by Alitalia but the long haul segments are sold as AF/KL code-shares.

Seems to be bookable on a bunch of small OTA's through Momondo/Skyscanner , also seeing it on Priceline for slightly more.

Example: https://www.skyscanner.co.il/transport/flights/tela/nyca/200625/200720/?adultsv2=1&childrenv2=3&cabinclass=economy&rtn=1&preferdirects=false&outboundaltsenabled=false&inboundaltsenabled=false#/details/16995-2006250930--32588,-32677-1-12712-2006251835|12712-2007201745--32677,-32588-1-16995-2007211620

Up In The Air / TLV-EWR Direct round trip flight (possibly) $422
« on: October 27, 2019, 04:45:17 PM »
Flights from TLV to ZFV connecting in EWR are pricing at $422 round trip!
At the very least this is a great TLV-EWR one way direct fare.
This can possibly be used as a round trip direct flight if the EWR-ZFV legs can be dropped.

Check Google flights for dates and click through to United.com.
Almost any date will work for the entire winter as long as the duration isn't more then 3 months.

There are many open questions to answer:
Can the train legs be dropped entirely? (probably not).
Can you check in for the train ride at EWR and then ditch the EWR-ZFV leg so that you only have to take the train for the return?
Can you get on the train one stop before EWR so that you don't have to pick it up at ZFV?

Not to many DP's to found on the web...

you better be able to prove the move. And if they "catch" which is kind of arbitrary, you're shut down.
A rental contract will suffice. Please tell me you know at least one person in England/France/Israel that can rent you a room for a few dollars.

PQD is only for U.S citizens. If you "move" to another country, you won't need it.

Wow. 355,809 CSR points for 6 tickets (2 adults, 4 kids), earning 346,476‬ alitalia points.
Booked?
I'm thinking of pulling the trigger myself but I don't see where I can fit it in  :-\
