So it looks like United is restarting in 4 days? It doesn't look like the May 11 flight was cancelled

has anyone been successful in getting united to reimburse replacement flights to Israel booked on other airlines? or any additional compensation . I'm still awaiting my refund for the actual cancelled flights.. they said 7 to 10 days?

I guess my question is, if you are looking to book a flight for late June, would you fly with a European carrier and take the stopover, or would you take a chance with United?

@Dan the message going around today said this
"Ly tickets from NYC to TLV issued by the 6th of May, departing between May 19-23 can be changed  to vouchers (just like before May 4th)  but *only until this Friday, May 9th!*

An official announcement *won't* be made. The link still says until May 4th, but this will still work!

The goal of this is, of course, to encourage those who bought tickets for Lag B'omer and don't plan on going due to the current situation to free up their places."

Do you have any idea if it's only cancelable until the end of this week or not, you didn't write anything about it

Does anyone know if United is rebooking flights that are cancelled? Flight not cancelled yet but I'm sure it will.

I booked an Emirates flight from ATH-EWR,

now I have the option of booking Aegean from TLV-ATH with a connection time of 1:25, will they 100% interline luggage in TLV on two separate tickets if they're partners?

otherwise I'll have to book Israir with a four hour stop to retrieve & recheck luggage

Looking to do a trip to TLV in Business with a stop in ZRH or MXP for a few days.
I dont want to recheck my luggage.
What's my best option?
Can I book a flight with DL and LY (AS miles) and have them connected?
