A few questions regarding Flying Blue:
1) When booking a r/t NYC-TLV flight, is it possible to get a free domestic trailing flight, or will that incur extra mileage?
2) In Dan's Ultimate Israel Mileage Award Chart posting, he states that it's the "best program for Delta". Does this mean that I can book a flight to Israel on Delta for 50k Flying Blue miles?
3) If I book a flight which then goes on sale ("promo"), would I get a refund for the balance?

Thanks and Chag Sameach to all!

Pull up the ticket number on dl.com, and see if you can enter that on cz.com manage my booking, you should get the CZ PNR then

For future reference, CZ call center was much better then DL.

DL rep x2 said they looked everywhere and can't find the CZ PNR (after waiting on hold for 15-20 minutes each time).
CZ was less then 5 minutes total including hold time.

Is it true that delta cant book a multi cabin itinerary on aeroflot ?
JFK-SVO-TLV is available in J but SVO-TLV is only available in Y, and reps. are saying I have to book the flights separately and can't book as one ticket.

After an hour and half I finally got a agent to do it.

I'm trying to book RT from NYC to SJD using KE. Anyone know how I can do this because koreanair.com doesn't recognize SJD as an airport?

Been looking online for a while for Delta availability on Flying Blue but nothing has been showing up.  Any thoughts or suggestions?  Do I need to call?

No, just Delta doesn't release much saver space. Find saver space on DL.com and then plug in that flight to flying blue

No. SQ is star alliance, and Delta is sky team.

If anything, transfer to and use AF, but I wouldn't do that.
Who do you think you are fooling? You think you are going to pull a quick one on your Creator? Good luck with that.
