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?

No experience but $70 for flights under 5.5 hrs and $150 for flights over 5.5 hrs as per this page: https://www.elal.com/en/PassengersInfo/Baggage/Pages/Sport.aspx

Also on that page:

Remove  pedals
Dismantle handlebars
Let out part of the air in the wheels and separate one of them from the body of the bicycle
Pack the bicycle in a box or special case, to protect it from damage and to prevent the leakage of hydraulic fluid
Transporting bicycles requires approval from EL AL and is on a space available basis

If it's a ticket btw US and Israel then all tickets include a suitcase as there are no LITE fares on these routes. For other routes I'd give them a call

Just checked in for flight tomorrow. Got the following message- “Thank you for checking in. Boarding pass will be provided at airport.” Does this mean SSSS?
