That sucks! Although I believe with ELAL you can call and put on hold. Next time...

Or have a TA put it on hold for you.

about 24 hrs

I transferred MR to ELAL yesterday, and still showing regular redemption rates.

Anyone that is executive care to check rates for me for next week TLV-NYC and return after Pesach? I need to bring someone to me for Pesach.

Also, if asking a TA to hold, does it matter which Matmid account it's coming from? Does it need to be the traveler or anyone? And then what does one do to get it issued?
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

Does the account have a US address on file?  Rate is 690k in Y and 1750 in J, I think.

You can have a TA hold it and call LY to have it issued under any name.

What's in it for the TA? Why would a TA do it?

Also, it's been more than 24 hours since I transferred MR points, but it's still showing the regular rates of 790 in Y. What can I or do I need to do in order to get the 690 rate?

OK. So I just got the email confirmation of Executive status, and am able to book for the reduced points.

Is there any way to see seat availability map prior to booking? The person I am booking for puts a high importance on the seat, so might pick a flight based on the seat she can get, rather than schedule.

Also, anyone have any recommendations/experience for booking travel medical insurance for an 84 year old Israeli Citizen coming to the US? What's the best way to go, for most coverage and reasonable pricing?

Is an El Al voucher valid for anyone, or only the named person?

Well, if you have a TA who you book tickets with, I guess he will do you a favor since you are his customer?

Go to the website and file a complaint. Good chance you'll get a voucher.

Thanks. With Pesach coming up, I'd rather get on a flight tonight. Any way to accomplish that?
