Saw an AM flight on DL that suddenly disappeared yesterday. I checked FB today, and I see it. Would someone (with a paid EF  subscription) be so kind as to check if it's phantom?
Did you get it yet? If not PM ME

It's going to apply to all airlines as the bulk of it is a tax.

Usually a waste of miles when flying to London as tax is crazy high.
 Ba fissure not ,while IB is a bit less.
Don't try to be someone else , be who you are because everyone else is taken.

AF is showing some incredibly weird options right now to go NYC-TLV in Y. For example on 1/12/2018 it shows DL4281 SWF to DTW and then DL468 DTW to TLV (here is a screenshot https://imgur.com/1v7VWUs). This is absurd as A) there is no nonstop flight from DTW to TLV and B) DL468 is Delta's direct flight from JFK to TLV. This option is being shown on many other days as well such as 1/26/18. Does anyone know whats going on? Is this a sign that Delta may finally be releasing some TLV saver award space?
I found one ticket JFK-TLV on DL468 7/8/19 for 29K FB +$10.10 (or 25400+$50.54, 21800+$90.97)
Google is my friend

And why’s that? If I transfer points from CC I actually lose value. Currently pricing out at 1.2 cpp
