Are there penalties? Until when can one cancel before a flight? Is this also on the "glitch" tickets? Will they refund the $75 fee? Is there a charge for fare change?

Thanks
They allow changes for the glitch tickets, with limitations.

From where do you know that? And also if you already changed to direct?

They will waive the change fee for date changes however you will still need to pay for the difference in fare. (nice chunk o' change for those on the glitch)

I also called about the glitch ticket and hey were willing to cancel... I'm sure they are actually glad to cancel.

When I asked about changing the dates he said that with "these" tickets they wouldn't allow it.

I did upgrade the return flight to direct. He didn't mention no refund for the $75 but I didn't ask specifically since I was just calling to find out the policy about getting a refund.

Since the $75 fee was charged as an "upgrade" to direct I don't see why they shouldn't have to refund that fee as well.

After a few phone calls I confirmed that they will refund all tickets, including the &75 change fee. You must cancel outside of 6 hours before your flight.

You will be charged difference in fare for the glitch tickets.

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"
