Thanks. Amen. I will update from an Americans perspective once I get there. I love all the Israelis attitude "couldn't be safer" "you don't feel a thing in Jerusalem"   
To be fair, that's what we were saying before Friday night

Wonder why the airlines are allowing these cancellations

I guess otherwise people will be afraid to buy non refundable tickets to Israel in advance.

Aside from LY, I don't think anyone else is allowing cancelations

I cancelled 7pm tix for tonight (sun) on fri at 4pm and received a full refund including the "75 upgrade charges" - I first tried to rebook for Tue or Wed night (I needed to be here on Mon, last min) and was told that "elal is not rebooking any GLITCH tickets" - was actually shocked to get any money back

Yes I really want to hear it.

Just got to my apartment. It really is calm here. When I told the taxi driver that I considered canceling my flight due to the situation he started laughing. He then proceeded to go on a rampage for 30 minuets how the Palestinians are liars, and how if the rest of the world would back down the whole situation would be over in a few hours.

To me it seems that Jerusalem is calm, quiet and business is going as usual.

To anyone considering canceling or changing, I assure you that it's not necessary.

If you're just coming to Yerushalayim etc I wouldn't necessarily tell someone not to go. But otherwise I'm not sure going right now would be the smartest idea.

Just spoke to them.  They said they're not refunding the 75, is this the case?

+1 I think they have to or you can dispute the charge.

:o So it seems that 'glitch' tickets have a separate set of rules...  With all the waivers and cancellations, I'd think they'd have a surplus of empty seats.. ::)
