Is there any way to cancel an Elal ticket (booked less than 24 hours ago) right now by calling a call center located in America?

I found an American number 800-223-6700 (that may or may not work for cancellations) but how do I know if they are located here or not?

ETA: Found it eventually

I would call a local ticket office in North America. Like Toronto at  (416) 967-4222 or LA at 323-852-1252. Maybe they are still open.

The 800 number is their New York office. It was originally the only number I could find at it wasn't very clear where it was.

 Booked through QF award, how do you select seats?

No option online and call center is either closed or put on hold forever.

El Al has WhatsApp service where you can text them the PNR and request a seat preference (or a meal etc.)
Sometimes takes a while until they reply, but this way it doesn't waste your time.
Service is available Sun - Thur 8:30am - 7:00pm and Fri 8:30am - 4:00pm Israel time.
Number is +972535663033

I got a schedule change email from elal to an hour later, will they let me change flight to a day earlier because of this excuse?
