Doesn’t hurt to call and ask nicely.

Some relatives are supposed to fly the return leg of their LY TLV-MIA-TLV in Y+ on Wednesday (last flight out), ticket was booked via chase travel portal.
Originally, their return was supposed to be a week before pesach, but I was on the phone with chase last Friday for 3 hours to change it to this Wednesday (they also needed to upgrade to J as nothing else was available)
Chase had said that because the ticket is already used, the ElAl waiver doesn't apply, and charged a change fee per the fare rules.
They have now decided they'd rather stay in Miami at least until after pesach.
If I wait for T-24 for ElAl to get control of the ticket, will they change it for free? (and save me from another 3 hours with chase travel?)

Had a similar issue.
Book a fake ticket for a flight in the next 3 days, so you can speak to a rep. Then cancel within 24h.

got an email on April 13 from gotogate.com that our ticket with El Al on April 12 TLV-JFK has not been canceled yet, when in fact they did not fly at all. and "i need to reply within 48 hours to confirm that i want to cancel the booking"  then the email goes on to say that "the booking needs to be canceled at least 5 days before the original departure date"
what to make of it?????

i did dispute the credit card.

Had a JFK- TLV Flight for Pesach with LOT for 5 tickets(obvs with stopover). Booked through ultimate rewards using 245k points plus $300 and change
Flight was cancelled. Seems like LOT is offering full refund for those who booked direct (my in laws for example) but Chase is telling me its $200 per ticket to get refund. Spoke to 2 managers so far who claim its LOT policy- and not chase.
I can dispute cc charge but that wont help me get points back. Any advise?
