ElAl upgrade question:
Which clears first, a $ bid or an Extras class upgrade award?

(I know you have to choose either or, so which is better because you'd be ahead of anyone else in similar status to you?)

Extras always clear last (at the gate)

LY currently has 16 dreamliners
They might end up with 28 by 2030 if they fully exercise the purchase options.

I don't think it is that simple. the 321XLR could probably do LIS, DUB, and MAN/ for example without breaking a sweat. This frees up widebodies for North America and Asia. I think if it was that simple, it would've been announced in that order as well as the more planes they buy the bigger discount you get. Many loyal boeing customers are jumping ship and elal has to do whats best for them at the end of the day.

While itís true that the destinations you mentioned are stretching the limits of the 737s, they were never using widebodies for those routes.

True or false: I can currently book a flight for travel by 4/30 and cancel it a day later for an EL AL flight voucher good for use by anyone through 2026?

Looking to book elal via alaska but only two premium seats available. We are a family of 5 and premium prices for those dates are farely good. Is there any big risk in splitting up the reservations (booking two of us via AS miles and 3 via elal)? We have young children so we definitely don't want to get split up under any circumstances. Is there a way to link the two reservations? Thanks.

Don't think there's a way to link it but I know a lot of people that flew ELAL recently and no one had any issues getting bumped or anything, only slight risk can be a schedule change but you'll all be on the same flight either way

Had the issue once, try using web/desktop (or call them with your temporary PNR)
