This argument isnít elal unique at all
Many travel insurance have exclusions for your home town

Maybe you should have proofed residency with ID home bill etc

Question was not regarding travel insurance
Only airline liability which do not have such an exclusion

When trying to book thru Alaska, it doesn't give me the option to select seats, it says only 24 hours before departure that will be available. Is that accurate, or can I reserve seats on elal.com right after booking?

After purchasing a elal flight and it doesn't show any coach seats available will they assign space seats at no cost or am I forced to pay extra for those seats?

Maybe I was lucky. In the couple times I have had delayed baggage from different airlines I have found if you take good documentation, follow the airlines guidelines, and are on top of them they will reimburse you. This is the email I received from El Al when I made my claim:

I filed the claim and got the same auto email response from them. I replied with all the things they requested: receipts, PIR, itinerary, and luggage tag attached to the suitcase

So now I just sit and wait?
If it's not free shipping it's not worth it.

What flight / date?
Why would the flight or date make a difference? It's a general question if there is no more coach seats do they assign space seats at no additional cost?

They will assign you a seat no matter what.
I'm just curious to check your seat map, that's all  ;D

I got already a space seat (middle seat, but I was offered the aisle because there was a couple traveling together :) ) for free cause there was no reg seats left, That's what I'll always do when there's only middle seats left cause I have nothing to lose and a chance to get extra leg room

Not necessarily to you.. they can move ppl whom already have seats upfront and give you their seats..

Yes, they got back to me 22 days later with the resolution.

I hear, so if I have a booking with three passengers would they accommodate to sit together? Question is if I see now one aisle seat should I grab it first (cuz after all it's a aisle) even though would like to sit together.

So you just don't select anything and wait till they assign you at the airport?
