Not expensive if you're flying with 7 people
(Or with 12 suitcases... :D )

Was just trying to figure out if I can take advantage of it. Answer is no because you need a party of 7 paying 550₪ pp flying LY

Booked a King Superior for a free weekend with my two certificates. I'm a Diamond member; is there a chance of getting an upgrade?

Better off asking in the Hilton free nights thread, by goods for sale.

El Al check in at home with security and luggage collection is available anywhere in the country, for up to 5 people. Cost is slightly lower if Matmid/Fly Card member

http://www.elal.com/en/PassengersInfo/Uniqe-Services/Pages/Early-Check-in-at-Home.aspx

Not sure why they advertise this as an exclusive service...

I have two nights coming up at the WA right after Purim. Do I need to do anything for the free breakfast; I have Hilton Gold.

Also, what is the cost for the Shabbos Dinner and Lunch and how far in advance do I need to make reservations? Is Shabbos Dinner and Lunch worth it? TIA

Breakfast should be included with gold and they give it automatically.  I think dinner was $120 and totally worth it.  I wouldn't do lunch though since you can have a late breakfast with kiddush.  BTW, glad you took your friend's advice and got the Citi Hilton card and will be enjoying the WA instead of paying for a junky room elsewhere.  😜
