Anyone know about how much it would cost for me to upgrade a ticket from economy to j the day of the flight ? Just one leg of the round trip. Tlv to NYC today

You can always do a cash upgrade on board, I think they start at $700 but probably $1K+

They weighed carryons this past Motzaei Shabbos in JFK, and checked in the overweight ones for free.

El Al Israel Airlines recently gradually extended schedule listing into summer 2019 season, effective from 31MAR19. Based on preliminary filing, the airline tentatively schedules last 747-400 scheduled passenger flight on 30MAR19, Tel Aviv Bangkok route (Bangkok departure on 31MAR19).

From Tel Aviv from 31MAR19, the 6 weekly flights will be operated by a mix of Boeing 767 and 777, replacing the 747. Further changes remain possible in the next few months.

My parents are in need of a refundable fare from nyc to Israel. I looked at the basic economy fare (O) rules and it appears that El Al allows a refund before the first segment for a $250 cancellation fee. Can someone confirm that this is accurate? Is it an easy process to obtain  the refund?

Does LY always offer the same day onboard business class upgrade for $700-$800?

What if the regular fare was booked with points?

Thanks

Is there a way to buy matmid points?  I have 270 points and need 300 points for an extra bag on the way home.  Is it possible to buy the 30 points or use cash and points as you can do for a flight?
200 dollars is a lot extra for a second bag compared to 100 dollars on united.
As a side question, el al or united nonstop economy tel aviv to newark.

When you buy an award ticket, if you're missing points you can buy them at $1 a point. Not sure if being able to buy them also applies to suitcases, but I would give them a call

El Al charges $100 for an extra bag purchased at the airport (not $200). If purchased in advance (up to 6 hrs prior to departure), it's only $85
