I am flying
El al on a Iberia ticket.  How do I pick a seat and meal on the el al portion.
Iberia says I need to wait until I get to the airport which makes no sense, especially for the meal.

Did you try to log into your LY reservation online?

787 is not a good plane in coach.
Best option is United's 772 as that's more spacious in Y than the 77W.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

You could book a tentative reward flight and pay the change fee down the road ($60 I think), up to a year.

In case it's still relevant to you...

The best way to do it is by calling LY.
Give them the IB ticket number, and they will book you SRSKML and seats.
Some agents will refuse to help, so just HUCA

Should be able to do it if you track down the LY PNR. I don't remember exactly how I did this but once you get that you should have access to most options online.

Did you have any problems getting the qantas reps to redeem the miles on el al? Ive heard they can be very difficult about that.
