 Does anyone know if AA will reinstate miles for canceling a flight originating from TLV on a partner airline and same question for a flight originating from Casablanca?

Generally speaking, how do I know whether it pays to buy in business upfront vs. buying economy & upgrading to business?

Is there a way to book a child turning 12 mid-trip with a child discount? (On Emirates, itís a $300 difference in price)

NYC.

Probably up to 50k a year. Is AA gold for 30k worth it? What about JetBlue Mosaic for 50k? Are there others in this spending range?

I did AA gold for 30k recently. It was a low enough threshold that I felt like it was worth it. I never fly B6 so can't weigh in there.

I believe you can also earn DL status with CC spending but IIRC the required thresholds are significantly higher.

Any advice on how far in advance to book a (direct) roundtrip flight to Israel if looking for lowest fare? Happened to be focusing on United as seeing okay but not great rates. Wondering if they will go down or only keep going up. Thanks in advance.

Looking to pick someone up directly from the gate, and am looking for the easiest way to get through security. I'm assuming booking a flight is easiest, but does anyone know which airline or method of booking is easiest to cancel online? I'm not looking to be on the phone with CS for hours today.
I've done this with southwest

Just FYI, on United you can easily change your flight if the price goes down and get flight credit for the difference.

I have a multicity trip coming up. JFK-MXP-TLV-JFK. Trip was booked through Chase Travel (lots of points) and travel is through ElAl but for the first leg is operated by American.  I am able to check-up on my flight and choose seats/order meals on ElAl's site for the last two legs but not the leg operated by AA. When I go to AA's website they don't recognize my booking (which I guess makes sense since I'm not booked with them). Is there any way for me to choose seats and order meals for the first leg? Should I be contacting ElAl or AA?

Thereís a separate AA confirmation number that you need to get.

First try using the Elal ticket number on the AA website to pull up the reservation (after you try a confirmation number that gives an error, thereís a new box to put in ticket number).

If that doesnít work, you can try contacting the airlines to get the other confirmation number.
