lol, he's coming to say you shouldn't be judging him because you're all doing the same thing he is, and so you tell him not to judge others?
I don't think anyone (with maybe the exception of PG) judged him. Just saying that his assessment of the situation is off

I am off how? I started this thread to simply state, albeit in an irate way, how El Al are thieving crooks. I have heard, as early as today about others who were in the same situation who also got screwed over.

After being scolded by other commenters about taking advantage of El Al and how I shouldn't complain, I merely stated the purpose of dan's great site. Bottom line: we all come to the site to get great deals but, at times, are lucky and THRILLED to get those once in a blue moon awesome deals. This was one of those deals. Ergel, I judge all of the self righteous who claim to be rabbinic authorities on these matters and tell ME not to take advantage of these deals. These are the same holy yidden who are ON dans deals! Why are they there?

I don't think most people (with the possible exception of PG) were scolding you for taking advantage, rather just saying that it makes sense that el Al would take care of their real customers before you (and me, in January and Pesach time)

Dude, before responding and using stupid acronyms like ROFL.. Read the initial post. Or the ones after that for context....

What defines a real customer is my point. YOUR beliefs are that someone who pays full price is a real customer whereas the 6000 people who got this deal are not. However, when I call up El Al there isn't an asterisk stating that I have a glitch ticket. Not only that but even these glitch tickets, once ticketed, put me in the same fare class as you and all the people who paid full price.

This is like telling someone who gets bumped and gets a voucher for a free ticket that they are second class to someone who paid out of pocket... Or the same as someone who pays 200 bucks for a ticket and someone else pays 900... Your rationale is so incredibly flawed. If you are a business, which it appears El Al is not, you treat ALL customers with respect because that is how you get repeat customers :)

Again, your opinion, but not the one we are arguing now. I said previously I agreed everyone should receive a basic level of service. In terms of priority I was explaining why El Al would first ticket passengers who paid full price first and I still believe that, but, again, not the point we are discussing now.
I was saying that you should not judge others and berate them. That is a defensive stance which will make others not like you. In the long run it will not make you a happier person.

That I think is the key point. If you would have presented yourself differently, the response may have been different.
Judging on the way you presented here I would not be surprised if that was the way you presented as well to the El Al agent, which may have been part of the reason for the response you received. Being abrasive is least likely way to receive what you want.

Beyond me how someone who is making a company provide him something at a loss because the law provides him an opportunity calling the airline thieving crooks

How can they be thieves when u end up with their property?

Like mentioned a million times on the forums Elal did not lose anything, they only gained from this like Dan explained a million times, but seems like you don't bother reading these days...
