You can ask them to open the bottle in front of you, and can even ask them to open the bottle yourself
Asked them if they had a closed bottle they could bring. They said ďthe bottle WAS closed; we showed it to him before we served glasses of wineĒ (pointing to a frum guy two seats ahead)

At Elal EWR, is 1:30 hours too late to show up at the checkin for TLV, how about without luggage? Y class.

Taking the train and it gets in 1:45  before, figuring 15 minutes to the counter.

Shortest doesnít necessarily mean cheapest.
SOF from 12/21-25 is pretty close

Is there a way to upgrade elal using chase rewards points. Ticket was purchased using cash.
In general can you upgrade a paid tix with points?

Anyone know if ElAl is car seat friendly? Iím traveling with a 2+ year old for the first time on a long flight and I could not find good information in regards to car seat requirements allowed. I am flying  in January on 787-8 from BOS-TLV in economy. Happy to hear of any forward facing car seat recommendations that are ideal for traveling.

I flew with car seat in PE without any issues. They prefer that you hold the child for take off/landing.

A friend is booked on LY26 from EWR to TLV tomorrow.

FlightAware and FR24 are both showing the flight is cancelled, but LY site and app showing on schedule. Where would FA and FR24 be getting the "cancelled" data from?
