If you pay for it then no
What do you mean if I pay? vs point? I know other airlines, especiallly domestic, will cancel a double booking.

Interesting DP. My SILs Arkia flight to BCN for tomorrow is delayed by 4 hours, which would cause her to miss her self connection to AC BCN-YUL-ORD, booked on UA.
UA supervisor agreed to waive the fare difference to put her on a UA flight the next day, after verifying the story with her Arkia ticket. I was very pleasantly surprised.

Anyone know if delays these days (on Arkia) are eligible for compensation under IL or EU laws?
There’s no security threat in place, they’re just backed up from Motzei Shabbos’s cancellations.

Likely falls under exclusions for stuff out of the airlines control.

Our Travel Agency has been successful in getting many stranded passengers on to flights out of Israel the past few days, including over a dozen on direct ELAL flights to NYC and MIA If anyone wants us to try for them Please PM and we'll get back to you ASAP.

Delta is scheduled to begin flying JFK direct to TLV on June 7, 2024. I booked for later date in June. I assume it is uncertain, but is Delta  likely to keep with that start date or postpone it?

If booked as a DL ticket they can put you on a ELAL flight if cancelled

Still no commitment to return,

"Our daily flight from Newark to Tel Aviv remains canceled through May 2. We continue to closely monitor the situation and will make decisions on all upcoming flights with a focus on the safety of our customers and crews."
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.
