What is AF cancellation policy - on a non-refundable ticket, can I still cancel within 24 hours?

TIA!

As per phone rep - can cancel within 24 hours with no penalty. After 24 hours, they assess a penalty and you use the remaining amount for flights within 12 months.

legal disclosure here ...

Has anyone ever purchased a flight from priceline that was not billed as coming from the actual airline?  Maybe a multi-airline itinerary?  I need one for whatever reason, so please let me know.

Does Ukraine still offer 2 free checked bags (TLV-KBP-JFK)? I know in the past they did, but looking at their website it appears not.

When I bought Azerbaijan tickets on Priceline it came up as something weird IIRC.

Idk but Aeroflot (TLV - SVO - JFK) does allow 2 bags, as of Priceline today.

Just had AA offer an upgrade to business during online check in. Is this a thing? Never seen this before.

Can I use my aa points to book a flight for someone else even if I am not going on that flight with them.  Since I am platinum can I use this status to get them the preferred seats in couch that I would be entitled to?

My friends has a flight with Elal SXF - TLV @ 10:00 pm.
He'll be flying into Berlin from London in the morning, spent the day there and then go to Israel.

SXF currently do not have luggage storage facility (per their website).
What's the earliest that he can check in with Elal. If he can check in the morning then he'll fly LON-SXF. If he'll anyway have to schlep his luggage around town, he'll fly LON - TXL.

ETA: There is an Elal flight at 10:55am, so their desk will certainly be open. Will they allow him to check his luggage in in the morning even though he's flying on the evening flight?

Did you try to ask Elal?  I know you can't rely on phone reps, but they may have an answer for you.

Don't try to be someone else , be who you are because everyone else is taken.

I'm afraid its a scam i tried logging into it from the regular website and it says my email address doesn't exist. There was another email with a link but I'm afraid to open it.
