Cool, Elal has a feature like this for overbookings on their website? Where? I can use it too now.
I think this is Delta, no?

Any recently had any experience getting bumped voluntarily on UA to/from TLV?

I asked the lady I the UA club if they needed anyone to get bumped. She told me they don't bump internationally anymore.

Ok...I read up every thread here discussing all the tips and everything how to get bumbed.  It would be useless to try if they wouldn't budge.

There is no way to get them to bump you if they are not oversold and need someone off of the flight. The kunts is getting them to choose you when they are bumping
Life isn't about checking the boxes. Nobody cares.

Correct..as all the "instructions" to get bumped imply.  I know that if the flight is kinda empty and I ask them if I can get bumped they'll just laugh

Incorrect. They'll often tell you on the phone. And if  you want to be bumped show up early at the gate and put your name on the list of "volunteers."
