Can you use cash and points combo to buy a ticket for another family member or only the person listed on the account?

One can buy for someone not listed on the account

Forgive my ignorance, are you referencing when they swap in the new plane configurations that no longer have first class and instead have the new business class product?

Business class will also be renumbered from 9-16 to 1-8

No here we're talking about LY adding additional PE seats on the 787. And they are also taking the opportunity to renumber the seats in business.

I believe you're referring to the retrofitting of the 777, where the first class seats will be removed and the business class will get the same seats as the 787. It's my understanding the retrofitting will start in June

Ah, ok thanks for explaining.  I actually have two biz seats booked for the end June out of EWR, on the old business class on the 777, so I'm always hoping (I know most likely it's not gonna happen) that the plane or seats are swapped out before then.  :)

We reserved seats for our EL AL flight online.
But whenever I log in it shows that we do not have seats reserved.
This keeps on happening.
Why is this - can seats only be reserved within a certain amount of time before the flight?

My sister and 2 of her friends booked a paid flight. For some reason only when managing my sisters booking I have an option to "Book/Update Seat and Baggage", two of her friends don't have that option. Is there any reason for it?

Could be how it was booked, with TA or directly online.

Seems like they used a 3rd party site. Thanks

Just to clarify; people get offered free upgrades or paid ones?

Hi - I purchased an PE on El Al using Chase UR. I would like to have the flight credited to Qantas - How do you accomplish this? I tried on El Al lousy website but do not see any option of doing so.
