I think this was answered somewhere else, but I can't find it now:
1) book travel that is the value of the voucher
2) wait 24 hours
3) cancel for an electronic travel cert (you will probably have to do it by phone, as they took off the option from the web)

2) BC (before covid) waiting longer than 24 hours would incur cancellation fees.  Shouldn't you cancel before 24 hours have passed?

What I've heard/read is that if you do it within 24 it automatically refunds to original form of payment, but afterwards, it's considered a complete booking that can be refunded to different forms. But I have no personal experience, so I may be wrong.

You are right. You can try calling before 24 hours, but then it will take 5-6 business days until you get the ETC.

I called after 24 hours, and it still took 5 business days.

AA domestic F, two free 70lbs. Additional baggage is 50 or 70lb?

Meaning for third bag, 70lbs. Pay only for additional or for additional+overweight? Website language is ambiguous.

I would guess Camera Equipment, a bit of clothing and food for an entire tour of people? (Not necessarily in that order)

With self baggage check-in, I don't think you"ll have an issue.

For a JFK-TLV leg.

Can i book a separate ORD-EWR leg earlier that day and have the bags checked through all the way to TLV since they are both NYC airports?

(I assume ORD - JFK would certainly work, unless there is an exception for international or TLV.)

I would think yes but assume its up to the check in agent in ORD to do it.
