Probably the latter, but it time will tell

If someone is booked LY tlv-nyc would you think that elal will be consolidating flights, or just leaving people without options?
CEO announced for the time being they will maintain flights and adjust according to demand.

What does this mean for travel insurance?
Normally they will allow you to cancel if government recommends 'all but essential travel'.
Here where it's the visiting country that has the issue, will they refund bookings for Airbnb and hotels?

Looked at the seat map, it's almost empty, don't know what it was before, but this looks unusual.

Is it safe to say that foreigners planning to go to Israel for Pesach should cancel their plans?  Or is this like the Purim story -- will this decree be annulled???

I'd say the odds of this being lifted before Pesach are quite small.

If anyone chances to fly to Israel from USA over the next week or two, I'd love to hear what the flight load looks like and then what the arrival experience is like.

What's my best bet to get back money for an aeroflot flight nyc to israel in week and a half, booked with OTA travelgenio, will they refund me? Should i wait till they maybe they cancel the flight themselves? Should i try travel insurance?

So how does this work? You land in TLV, take a taxi to your quarantine location, and infect the taxi driver who passes it on to hundreds of subsequent non quarantined passengers?

What, you think any of this is logical?

Keep in mind that obviously very few people are going to go to Israel so it won't be many people.
