Yes. An undercover TR is not happening.

Which means you will not get the real ELAL experience. (Though to be fair, it is rumored that they treat premium customers very well. IDK if that goes for all business class customers or only for their top level frequent flyers).

Your only chance of getting the real LY experience is if your flight gets cancelled at the last moment, but I would guess they would avoid doing that with your name on the roster.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

I wrote this many times. IME LY has the best in flight service in J across any western airline. I've been feeling this way long before i was a frequent flyer with them. In fact the only incremental benefit you get in flight for being TP is having the  in flight manager come say hi (and free wifi).. for the rest, the service is the same for everyone

Better than TK?

Though TBH, in today's day an age the pre-flight and crisis handling are no less important, if not more.

Haven't flown TK for a long time. I remember the food that the folks were getting seemed incredible. Obviously not relevant to me. Other than that the service was good.

You're right about preflight and crisis handling. For being LY TP, this is also unmatched as far as I know. (Like bumping someone else off J 48h before the flight)  :) I'm aware that for the remaining 99% of the passengers, the preflight service is horrible

So based on your testimony, and since I don't expect to become LY TP, I will continue to avoid for now. Just ticketed AA, knowing that the soft product is one of the worst for J to TLV, but at least I have a 50% chance of getting a good hard product.  ;D

I respect that  :)
I continue to fly them despite the current crisis because I know they if my flight gets cancelled they will rebook me on another airline. If i hadn't that certainty, i wouldn't risk it at the moment.

I flew TK and LY J they're both incredible, obviously in flight LY was exceptionally better because of the kosher food and wine.
TK Versace amenity kit was the only noticeable difference. There's nothing like Tk business lounge though...

Sounds like a regular J customer has a larger chance of being bumped than with other airlines.

Correct.
For what it's worth they first bump those who booked with qantas  ;D

The only thing that might change this is if LY TP could be obtained by CC Spending.

Never seen so many pre-boarders in my life, but the in flight experience is flawless so far.

Time for you to try flying WN, never seen so many pre-boarders on other airlines. The reason is because with Southwest if you pre-board, you can take any seat (besides exit), so there is a real benefit.

Was very nice following you to the holy land @Dan

Pleasure bumping into you at TLV.

The only remaining question is, was flying Elal worse than my 11hr stopover in IST? ;)

Of course I did, doesn't change the fact it was 11 hours though. On a side note those sleeping pods are pretty cool although rather hot inside.

Dear Mr. username
 
It had being brought to my attention your constant shaming and abuse of American Airlines, looking for to cause monetary damages, slander, specially when United cancels your flights and American is nice enough to accomodate you and your family.
 
You continue to exploit the system and alerting other for your ill gain, for segment violations, gds violations, using third parties, code shares etc.
 
I have invested money and sweat, amongst other people to have American service the Tel Aviv market.T
 
Rabbi Duchman also spent a great deal of time, Boruch Kaye, Rabbi Weingarten, and so on.
 
I am asking to cease and desist all mentioned activities right away for ever.
 
Dont force us to take you to a Din Torah in Israel and maybe secular action.
 
Thank you for your undestanding, any further communication will be by either our attorneys, the Bet Din Hagadol in Tel Aviv or the Crown Heights bet din in Brooklyn NY.
 
Thanks.
 
Best regards.
 
Ye Mandel
