Craz is a old time hater. He did make this place interesting back in the day though.
I'm hoping he'll jump into the conversation here...

Then I believe they will just refund you but you won't be able to change the ticket anymore. Then again, thats what the agent told me so YMMV+DROPR. Just forwarding the message.

On a side note, my wife was somehow able to convince a manager at AA last night to move our PHL-TLV flights to LY direct flights out of JFK. #Extatic

I hope it works for you. My son in law got the same thing a few weeks ago and then 2 weeks after, he got an email and phone call that LY wouldn't do it.

Once you're notated it will be very hard to get a rep to book you on LY.
Maybe call and get a bunch of other non-issues notated so that it falls down the record :P

Won't work with AA as well as it does with some other airlines, because in Sabre, the oldest notes are often shown first, with newer notes underneath, in descending order. :(

Looky here:

Exchanges must be processed by October 30. Otherwise your only option probably will be, indeed, to refund the ticket.

Everything is supposedly. I had a rep tell me that I can do it anytime, even up to the 22nd of April which is my departure date but that flights simply might not be available anymore. And then again, if there is one thing I have learnt more then anything on DDF it is that DROPR.

Elal signed the deal - it's official the 787's are taking over the old boeing 747's.

PSA: For anyone who had O or Q class on AA/US who thinks they "got lucky" and convinced AA to rebook them on El Al (even though they weren't supposed to), please check, double-check, and triple-check your tickets. Even if you see the LY flights on your reservation, it does not mean anything if it's not ticketed properly - for example, beware of the words "on request" on the AA site. I'm hearing reports from people who thought they were good to go because an AA rep rebooked them on LY, but it never got ticketed, and when they called back (weeks later), they were told "sorry, the reason we couldn't reissue your ticket is because O/Q class is not eligible for LY direct flights; you'll have to choose AA/IB flights instead." So MAKE SURE you have NEW 13-digit ticket numbers from AFTER changing your flights to LY.

Let me repeat this again: SEEING EL AL FLIGHTS ON YOUR ONLINE RESERVATION IS NOT ENOUGH. IF YOU DON'T HAVE NEW 13-DIGIT ETICKET NUMBERS FOR YOUR EL AL FLIGHTS, THEN IT IS ABSOLUTELY USELESS!!!! CALL BACK AND SWITCH TO ANOTHER (CONNECTING) FLIGHT OPTION, OR ELSE YOU WILL BE TOLD AT THE AIRPORT THAT YOU HAVE NO TICKET, AND CANNOT FLY!!!!

For best results, you can call El Al directly, and ask them if they can see your ticket number(s) on your El Al reservation. If yes, then you should be good to go.

(Dan, perhaps consider updating the main site post.)
