Moldova has a law similar to EU-261, try to claim for €400 and see how it goes.

If you’re referring to the TLV-EWR Emirates option, it seems many people on here have said that its tight but doable

I have a round trip flight to EWR, on my return I have a stopover in IAD. In the end I am going to be near IAD and want to drop the EWR-IAD leg. 1. Will United let me just drop that segment? 2. Should I ask them now or after I already fly the departing trip?

If you miss EWR-IAD, IAD-XXX will be canceled.

If you’re lucky you may get a weather waiver, and ask them to drop the 1st leg.

Im not asking about missing, Im asking if the airline will proactively allow me to drop the leg from my itinerary without repricing the ticket?

They would reprice unless there’s a waiver of some sort or you have a very convincing reason they shouldn’t.

I cancelled a flight that was booked with award miles (UA) a while back. The CC I used to pay the taxes is no longer active. Where will the taxes be refunded to?

If i book two separate segments JFK-ZRH and ZRH-TLV with LX, will they put the luggage through all the way to TLV? Are all airlines the same in this regard?

All airlines are not the same in this regard. But on the same airline you should be okay

Which airlines' points program has the best redemption for nonstop flights from NY to LA? best I see is BA for 16k + tax. I believe there is cheaper, just not familiar with all partners' charts. (flight could be on any airline - just looking for the best redemption rate/fixed rate)

Thank you
