They called me today to discuss my email but wouldnt let me switch it to YYZ-TLV. 
Anyone have any ideas how to convince them to switch it to YYZ-TLV? Has anyone been successful doing such a thing? I asked what the price would be (ie make me an offer) and they said this whole thing was a glitch, and if I want YYZ-TLV I need to book a new full fare ticket.

Any ideas? Assuming that it's indeed cheaper for them to fly us direct, shouldn't they be willing to work with me on this? HUCA?

You can play HUCA but I doubt they'll do it cuz ElAl USA cant really book tickets from canada.

Is there an ElAl Canada that I should be trying? Or are they uninvolved in this whole thing?

I have a flight JFK-ZHR on AA with a 2 hour stopover in Zurich and then SwissAir to TLV. Booking code is N to Zurich and G to TLV.
The way back is through London, G then N.
How many AA miles would I gain by switching to non-stop?

I called a few times earlier tonight and was told to call after midnight EST. I just called now and was told that there is currently a briefing going on at ElAl about this whole thing and it will be over in 30 minutes.

I emailed them right when the announcement came out. They called me today to discuss my email but wouldnt let me switch it to YYZ-TLV. 
Do you have to write what you want in the email, or is it enough just to give them your phone number in the email, and tell them to call you, without telling them at all what you may want?

First time I called they would only change my return flight one dy ahead, said no thanks and called again.

This time they said no problem and changed both return flights (me and companion) 3 days ahead!

Wow! This gotta be one of the best deals ever

we have 6 tickets from march 20th-april 3rd through zurich , i was hoping to change the outbound but called in and they told me they have absolutely nothing to offer me on either leg of my flight! I guess because it is so close to pesach they dont have much open to book with. anyone have ny advice? the woman spoke to her supervisor and tried getting them to approve it but still nothing doing.

The Rep, allowed me to change from march 18th to march 16th ONLY because there was no availability on march 17th, i gladly took it.

she also told while this fare was booked in class W it will have the rules of the original the G and N class. it is only being booked in w to open up fares so people can change. seems like we wont be getting 100% miles. any heard anything about this???

HUCA.

i did, everyone says the same thing, i dont think calling back opens more fares in certain classes, seems only wil be helpful to get an extra day or so....

If I have 2 ppl on my ticket does that mean I will get 11k total or 22k miles
