Sounds a bit silly to land in Cyprus for a change of crew when you're so close to TLV.. but I guess that's how it works

That's better than UA who wouldn't leave origin if the crew may go over time.

Random LY question.

Anyone understands what's the story with seats 21 HJK on the dreamliner?

I'm told that these are reserved for airport use, so even the VIP team won't release them. But how are they allocated at the airport? Will they go empty if Y isn't overbooked?

Understood, thanks

The way they manage bulkhead seats is very strange. You have the middle DGF which can't be booked because it's for families which requires a bassinet, and HJK can't be booked because it's for airport use.

So that leaves only ABC up for grab

Will it extend their life if I book and then cancel? (That works for AA and others...)

Thanks!
