Where can I claim my ElAl flight miles?
« on: October 05, 2014, 08:30:15 PM »
Where can I claim miles for my Elal flight?
Every American airline I search is not partnered with Elal - Does this mean that I can't claim miles with them?
I searched, American, United, U.S. Air, even Aegean....
  (Its too late for me to claim it on Delta, but even delta does not list ElAl as a partner...)

Until Oct 31 you can earn AA miles.
You can say what you think when you think what you say.

+1 - but now I too wonder what will happen after Oct. 31, will there be any way to credit El Al to anything useful? If not that will mean I'll probably never ever fly them again...

If you end up flying them, it's worth it to have the points anyways- can use them to pay for a second bag (this is a poor way to be recompensated for flying them, but at least it's something)

wow - that's crazy.  So AA is the only airline that will accept ElAl points, but only until Oct 31.
Is this a BDS thing??

Lol.
It's an LY is a really poorly run airline and Matmid is an exceptionally poorly run loyalty program thing.
