No
Who do you think you are fooling? You think you are going to pull a quick one on your Creator? Good luck with that.

No

Yes. The workaround is to open an account via Amex and it's free. But if you go via the link on their website, they charge $25 and give a bonus 25 Matmid points.

I'm looking to fly end of Jan. EWR-TLV. I prefer LY, but what do you advise given the current LY situation? Book now? Wait? Different airline? Thanks.

Happened to notice this on El Al's Hebrew Facebook page today -

Someone posted a message on the wall (in Hebrew) asking when flights to Miami will commence.

El Al replied: שלום סבטה, תודה רבה על פנייתך, אל על בוחרת את מגוון יעדיה עפ"י שיקולים מסחריים ותפעוליים. לצערנו הקו הישיר למיאמי אינו עומד על הפרק בשלב זה משיקולים אלו. תודה

Quick translation: Sveta, thank you for contacting us.  El Al chooses its various destinations according to operational and commercial considerations.  Unfortunately, direct flights to Miami are not currently being considered at this time, per the mentioned considerations.  Thank you.

Don't assume that the person managing El Al's FB page knows anything about El Al

Has anyone ever gotten in writing the maximum dimensions El Al will permit for a personal item to carry on board. (not the hand luggage allowance) The El Al site does not appear to have any mention of personal items and certainly I cannot find any dimensions listed. Emailed El Al multiple time but they choose not to respond. My concern is connecting through Europe that the US carrier to Europe will allow me to bring on board a personal item, that El Al may turn down once I get to Europe....

EWR-TLV - which is better, El Al or United?  Economy seat.
