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?
Most stopovers more then 24 hours requires to recheck luggage even on a single ticket (Many airports have luggage storage lockers if you don't want to shlep them around)

Did anyone get a cancellation yet for United TLV -EWR on May 30
I saw that just waiting for the cancelation to go through
Going to take a couple days.
I was able to reach out via chat and get rebooked before mine were cancelled, before they actually process the cancellations and alternate flights sell out.

I was looking at this and I see that before check out they add a 4% convenience fee for paying by CC. @chff Is it legal to do that in NY? Dan mentioned on DDMS that in NY the CC fee has to be disclosed up front...

Illegal to not advertise the price including the fee. It's also illegal to charge more than the interchange rate they pay, 4% is a little suspicious

Priceline rebooked my end of May TLV-LHR leg of a VS flight, switching it to LY.  However it took 3 or 4 different calls to their support line and almost 2 weeks to get it rebooked.  If I had booked directly with VS it would have been easier and less stressful...but Priceline was about half the price that VS was showing when I originally booked.

Cant seem to find this combo on Chase Travel for flights in June. Anyone seeing LY-VS for R/T from TLV-JFK?

So does that mean KLM is still flying until July 1?

Have a Israel trip booked for the summer, but with everything going on I want a good Travel insurance that would cover if anything escalates, or if we need to evacuate and everyone cancels flights like after sukkos.
Which insurance worked the best after sukkos?
