If they lose in SCC, can they blacklist you for revenge?
They could do whatever they want...

They might, but depending on what you mean by blacklisting, it might be illegal.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

Hi

I had the exact same story as iHerman on Jan 25th was booked on UA 84 in I class (Business Class Award) and i got the UA agent to put me on LY in business class on that same flight LY002 and i made sure the UA ticket # was on the LY ticket and i had a seat assignment and had no issues. ;) ;)(sometimes its better to not to to over do it by getting a mileage ticket to be rebooked in first)

Of course you cant compare LY J class to UA but to get to israel on that day there was no other option.

I had a similar story this past week. I was flying in DL J class which was overbooked. DL rebooked us into LY F. We went to the LY checkin counter and were almost fully checked in and already had assigned seats when the manager realized that they oversold their J cabin and were going to upgrade pax to F. They then denied us boarding and claimed that DL oversold LY F, which was a complete lie. The cabin was F3 when DL booked us two seats on it into F class. Then they said that they could accommodate us if we purchased full fare F tickets on LY ticket stock and then later changed their mind when we said that we would do that. They also refused to give us any compensation or a hotel voucher.
In short, classic EL AL incompetence and rude disregard for anything remotely resembling customer service.

Did you point this out to them? Did you confront them about their blatant lie? If so, what was the response?
