I had a KLM/Delta flight that has a misconnect due to the KLM schedule change. Delta refuses to rebook nonstop.
Have the same. Keep us posted if anything works out.

Can i book a DL flight to JFK-AMS, book a LY AMS TLV and have them linked so i dont have to transfer my bags?
You can’t link the reservations, but you can ask the check in agent to check your bags all the way. YMMV.

Had the same thing with a flight booked through Expedia. DL wouldn’t do anything, Expedia was able to rebook on LY direct.

First flight for sale is actually March 4, but question remains.

I asked and they got mad at me for asking. :P

They are really burning their bridges with these late cancels.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

No burning no bridges, nobody is booking these flights.
Unless you mean the PR bridges.

Strangely enough, when you pull up a seat chart on these flights, they are basically empty except for Business. Business is over 50% booked. Which makes this even stranger, as they are ticking off good customers.

Looks like KLM is also making a technical LCA stop on the way to TLV.
You're right.
I'm surprised AF doesn't mind flying direct.
