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?
Did you try to change it?

Pretty much, yes. Contact the travel agent and tell them to cancel the return segment. When you want to book the return, you will need to pay the change fee and any difference in fare. (Probably needs to be within a year from ticketing date)

No
They once told me that you can "upgrade" to a regular ticket and then pay the change fee. But it's probably not worth it....

Thanks; If I do this but I paid for extra leg room seating will I loose the amount I paid for the extra leg room or will I be able to use on the next flight ?

Flying El Al 787 from JFK to TLV in Premium Economy. Anyone know if Row 20 (last row in PE) is close to regular economy or is there a space in between? What seats would you suggest reserving? (2 people)

There is a wall between 20 and 21

Row 17 has slightly more space but you're right behind the bathroom.

20 has the benefit that you can tilt your seat without bothering anyone behind you.

Earning switched to revenue https://www.elal.com/en/FrequentFlyer/EarningPoints/Pages/Loyalty-points-New.aspx
Is it just me or they decided to improve earnings rates from $8 to $7:1?
