Any GDS or expertflyer.com
Tell you how many seats they're willing to sell, now how many seats are actually left.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

FTFY

Tell you how many seats they're willing to sell, not how many seats are actually left.

Looking for was-tlv for summer high season for family. Found $917 AF outbound, DL through jfk inbound.

Is this an excellent fare or so so? Has it ever been cheaper in summer?

That was his question:
Is there a way to check how many seats are still unsold on a specific flight ?

If I book a United reservation now is it REALLY 24 hours to cancel (It will be shabbos) or the end of the day?

UA and BA are 24 hours on the clock.

Maybe get somebody in an earlier time zone to book it for you.

That is an idea, but I would have needed a LATER time zone so I could deal with it after shabbos.  Somehow I got a CSR to grant me a one time courtesy of holding it until after shabbos.  She said that they used to have that discretion, but it was changed as of Jan 1, 2016.

Anyway to see a list of destinations, that a specific airline flies to from a specific origin, without having to search every city on its own ?

I've found Wikipedia to be helpful.

I have a reservation on El Al, and I got this email today:

Dear Passenger,
Flight LY... on [date & time] will be operated by the Spanish airline, Privilege Style. For more details:
http://www.elal.com/en/More-Info/Pages/hp/Privilege-Style-Airline-777.aspx

Any thoughts about this?
(Should this be in a new thread?)
