Confirmed. No more elal Z class on points after April 1st. Same goes for the double points in Coach as well as in Premium.

@Dan maybe update the post regarding the upcoming changes.
What's Z class and double points?

From all the recent / upcoming changes, what drives me the most crazy is the fact that TP need to pay extra for checked suitcases on Lite tickets.

I mean one basically needs to spend $43k/year to be a TP under the new rules.. so you already get my $43k, now you're going after $35 for the once or twice a year a TP flies economy?

Today LY told Ynet that it will operate flight to Orlando during the summer, with first flight on July 2nd. Price starting at $999, and will be on both the 787 and 777. I couldn't find how many weekly flights at this stage

You mean no more booking with points on Z class even for Platinum Members?

LY 8 still sitting on tarmac in JFK on account of mechanical issue. They are going to try taking the part from LY 1 before letting passengers disembark.

Flight is live. https://fr24.com/ELY008/1f7b825d

When can I expect it to arrive realistically?

I might be wrong here. But I seem to recall that unless the flight is headed / originated from Europe, then you are only entitled to compensation for delays of over 8 hours. So here it looks like it will be 6.5 hours.

Again I might be wrong

True, under the delay law. But they violated DoT regulations by not allowing people to disembark.

What should I push for?

Family members are not happy that their trip was so shortened, nor were they thrilled about sitting so long on the plane.

Am thinking of partial refund. Thoughts?
