nice! I think it was a good article that gave Dan the chance to explain a lot of the things that people who are not on DDF dont quite understand (The DoT regs and the benefit of offering the upgrade for elal).

+1 like how he discussed the minimal losses, if any, for El Al
I have nothing witty to write here....

I love this quote. I wonder why this is. :)

“This is probably the most feedback we’ve ever received,” says Daniel. “People are more interested in flying to Israel for $300 than to Hong Kong for free.”

The best deal by far was the free LV deal :)

If the HKG deal went through that would be way more money saved than LV or elal or any of the other mistake fares that I can remember.  LV was nice bec it included free hotel but you can easily get that value for under 1k.

People on this site/forum are more interested in Israel than HKG.  Its not surprising.  When the HKG deal first went down I was telling friends the next day and theyre like "HKG? Why would you even want to go there?"

What? They won't even send you a free copy? (it was probably less of an article and more of a letter-to-the-editor)

It was a full fledged article

I stopped following this Israel ticket discussion a while ago so I saw it for the first time last night. Well written
