Speaking about the TP upgrade voucher, is there a market these days?
During the pandemic they were worthless given that J was cheaper than Y - but haven't been checking lately

Does elal have a phone number to speak to someone about status matching? They take very long to respond to emails if they do...

I always advise against using OTAs. When something goes wrong, or you need to make changes or cancel, OTAs are often hard to reach, they charge fees for things that are free, and they will give you a hard time for basic things.

I believe Dan mentioned in a post not so long ago that you can cancel all el al international flights (nyc-Tlv) now for a $100 penalty? is that in all classes?

also do they offer fully refundable tickets?
