Just got email from United Mileage Plus that said Welcome to Premier Platinum Status. I had that last year as part of a status match that I never completed. Logged into my account and it doesnt show PP status. Shows general member.

Probably sent in error, no? Would be sweet if you ended up with status though.
Memories last forever, make them while you can.

Probably because my status carried over until 1/5/20. Gonna sit on this and wait a bit before trying to finagle it. They actually messes up my challenge so I have a leg to stand on.

Airline?
But generally the answer is yes

My son is going to learn in E"Y for the year next year, but needs to come home for a family simcha during the year. Generally speaking, is it more cost effective to either:

- Book it as two NYC originating Round Trips - i.e. To School and returning for the simcha, and then to school and returning for the end of the year
- Book a NYC originating round trip for the beginning and end of the year, and then a TLV-originating return trip for the simcha?

Also, assuming no crazy deal - is it smarter to book him two separate one-ways for leaving and the end of the year?

My son just finished 2.5 years in EY. I booked him as needed one-ways all the time. This was all on points, no revenue tickets at all. Cant tell from your question. If its revenue then almost certainly TLV originated ticket will be cheaper.

TLV originating tickets are usually cheaper. So I'd book RT NYC - TLV for whole school year, then a RT TLV - NYC for the simcha.

Also if booking revenue, tickets are generally more expensive for 2 one ways total over one RT. May even be worth to book a open ended ticket (via a travel agent) for the NYC -TLV ticket if you are not sure when exactly he will be coming back.

If you're doing points none of this matters. Book one ways unless fees are more for two one ways over one RT. And even so nay be worth the extra fees for מונחת הנפש incase something comes up to book a one way now and a return later if using miles.
I'm not who you think I am.

Flew from JFK thru Rome to TLV with Alitalia on Sunday January 26. Its over two weeks and they still have no idea where my suitcase is. I already sent them a detailed list of the contents to help them locate it, but this seems to not have helped at all. Any ideas how to locate it? Have I lost my suitcase forever?
