No CC covers cancel for work reasons, to the best of my knowledge. Only purchased travel insurance does.

Mazel Tov! Two weeks including Sukkos? The extra 5 days shouldn't make toouch of a difference.

Second half of Sukkos. It's not me getting frantic. It's them.

Can anyone direct me to a list of the El Al fare basis codes?  Also, I'd like to know the upgrade benefits for silver and gold tiers.  Thanks.

When you look at flightradar it seems that the plane was closer to EWR when it started descending

Does an Israeli based matmid account become executive by transferring USA amex points?

Can't you just change the address listed on your account to an address abroad?

So I'm looking at flights from NYC to TLV next summer (late June/early July) and non-stop flights are about $1500. Currently there are 2 Saturday night flights, one from JFK at 11:45 PM and the other from EWR at 9:30 PM. Do they really stick to that 9:30 PM flight from EWR on Saturday night? That's not even close to doable for anyone keeping Shabbos no matter how close to Newark you live. You can be staying at an onsite hotel and still wouldn't be able to make that flight.

They have such flights. But generally if departure time is an hour after Shabbos and you check in before Shabbos and are flying without luggage, it's "theoretically" possible to make the flight if you're in/right next to the airport Shabbos

On June 29, 2019, Shabbos is over at 9:23 in that area. That gives you 7 minutes. I don't think that's even theoretically possible. A 9:30 flight merely satisfies El Al's rule prohibiting flying on Shabbos but that's all. Not a single Shabbos observer can be on that flight.

They are perfectly ok with that. They also fly a regular schedule on Yom Tov Sheini even though no one observant can fly with them (ex-USA)

Do LY Lite fares ex-WAW include a personal item and a carry on or does it include just  personal item?

Any Matmid Excutive member able to do me a favor and do a quick search for pricing?

TLV-VIE Nov 12th 4pm.

Online showing me economy promotion 125 and business promotion 550.

Wondering if they would be cheaper for excutives (I think the non promo price for excutive is 500 for Business).

Thanks.

It's at 75 points in economy with the current executive promotion
