United flight keeps on getting canceled due to weather. Any other airlines that I can insist they put me on?

They have the ability to put you on any airline IME and more likely on a partner airline.
In theory.
Sometimes it's hard to get a helpful rep.

i read that they are hard to deal with, and they booked people on different itinerary, why not go to a TA, from my experience they can find you better rates

I friend of mine booked tickets on ELAL to TLV for presidents week back in November. His wife became pregnant afterwards and since she is high risk they dont let her fly. He submitted the doctors letter to customer relations but here is thier response.

Thank you for contacting El Alís customer relations Tel Aviv.
 
Firstly, on behalf of El Al, we wish you Mazal Tov.
 
The ticket you are holding is a restricted economy fare.  There are no provisions on this fare for medical waivers or any.  As much as we regret, we are waive the cancellation fees. In order to refund your tickets minus the penalty, please contact our reservation team at 1-800-223-6700. It is possible that you may recover the penalties through your travel insurance. If you have such coverage, we will be happy to help by providing whatever information the insurance company may require.
 
We hope for your understanding.



Is there anything he could do? Or keep trying to Fight? Is elal correct in their policy?
