I would say they didnt lose or gain.
How do you know how much el Al pays American?

Whoever didn't switch I think Dan would agree el Al probably lost
El Al didn't lose anything,.... They charge 1000 dollar fuel surcharges:) in addition insurance for the company who prices in the surcharges and who failed to do this paid for the difference... That's how it works

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.

Thank you for the lesson in civility and in humility... And don't make presumptions...that way, as you so stated in the previous post, people will like you more ;)

No clue what you mean by this.

Nice speculation but you don't know that for sure. There has been plenty of speculation that el Al had no recourse to recoup its losses. No one can for sure. Meshugenuritis sure is spreading.

I definitely did not make any presumptions. I also did not make any assumptions, just speculated that I would not be surprised if that is what happened (which is why I said I would not be surprised and did not state it as fact)

You presume.... As for the insurance, that is exactly how it works... Let's just say. Work in the industry and leave it at that...Finally you say you aren't sure what I mean by the 1000 dollar surcharge and me taking advantage.. Intl. airlines, for years , have been charging that in addition to the base fare.. It's a ploy to get you to think tickets are cheap until you realize all the taxes and the massive fuel surcharge... Glitch tickets were glitches simply because the fuel surcharge was left off, a bogus charge from the get go

Then why are you both responding to my thread? I love negative people who peruse this site trying to prove everyone wrong... Must be compensating... As for the BS on fuel charges, do the research and get back to me on what you find...
