I booked a RT ticket to Europe, If i check-in for the way there, but i don't show up, would i still be able to take the flight back?
(I can't change the date so I'm booking an award ticket...)
no

Is it allowed to us a foot rest while in an exit row, UA to TLV, after takeoff and before landing? They sell inflatables.

Just to follow up, I used it and no one had any problem with it. Added a measure of comfort in Y.

LX TLV-ZRH-JFK with overnight 17 hour stopover, will the luggage get transfered or do you need to pick it up in ZRH?

I believe I saw on their website that you can check in as early as 23 hours before in the airport, so I assume that it will transfer.

LX gives an option during OLCI to short check bags

Did anyone ever have an ElAl flight leaving TLV 2 hrs after the zman? Did they give you a courtesy with late check in?

From what I understand LY doesn't care to help religious Jews. They have a flight in the Summer when Shabbat ends at 9, that leaves JFK at 9:45.

They just want to be able to say that they don't FLY on Shabbat. Other than that it seems that they don't care.

Once has a Motzei Shabbos flight going for Lag Baomer and the pilot came on and said "Several hundred of our passengers were late, so we will be delayed." Something like 400 were chassidim as one can imagine. Was funny, but he sounded annoyed.

My question is if 2 hrs and 15 min after the zman is to short and if I will arrive a  little bit more then an hour before the flight if they will make me problems.

a little bit more than an hour you should be fine.
I'd suggest checking in online though right after motzai

That would depend on if you're coming from Tzfas or Kefar Chabad
