Just want to confirm that you can't earn EL AL points when flying Air France?

I put in my ELAL number for the first leg which is an EL AL fight but want to make sure I earn Delta miles for the second Air France leg.

What ever happened to the El Al and ANA Codeshare partnership supposed to happen in spring 2024?

If you book on ELAL, do you get miles on delta? Do you get any perks/benefits from Delta based off your status?

(Full disclosure: Carried over from https://forums.dansdeals.com/index.php?topic=31028.msg2819078#msg2819078, to get help from a more active thread)

El Al is currently only booking flights through May 5, 2025.

Question: Is there a way to book a NYC-TLV-NYC "student ticket" (i.e for a seminary or yeshiva student with long-dated return ticket in mid-June 2025, with flexible return date) directly with El Al, or do you need to go through a travel agent? (My motivation for direct, is I'd like to use Chase points).

Alternatively, if I book direct with El Al for a return date in May 2025, and subsequently change that to mid-June, what is the change fee?

P.s. It seems the price for one-way tickets is $200+ more for each leg, relative to booking that as part of a round trip.

FYI - The no change fee statement on their website is not terribly clear on this situation. That is at: https://www.elal.com/eng/useful-info/peace-of-mind

I called customer service about the change fee in this context  i.e. moving the return ticket (TLV to EWR) from May 5, 2025 to mid-June 2025, which is (1) beyond 12-month from ticketing (purchase, assuming purchased today), and (2) beyond the current "no change fee statement on tickets to the Americas, which specifies only till 5/31/2025").

They confirmed (after I asked they confirm this with a manager) that there would be no change fee.

They highlighted that it would still be subject to a potential additional cost relating to any fare difference.

Hopefully I can rely on that.

Online works just doesn't link benefits
You can WhatsApp for seats and bags will be waived in airport
If you book through a travel agent it should link properly

You canít link separate tickets. You can request a baggage interline from the check in agent but YMMV.
