LOT Polish Airlines is not charging a fare difference to change from cancelled flights. They have very cheap tickets for the next few weeks which will almost definitely get cancelled. You can then change to Sukkos/New Years or any high season in the next 2 years for free! If the flight doesn’t get cancelled, you can always change the date but you’ll have to pay the fare difference. May be worth the risk in some cases.
I was thinking of doing it last week because they were selling tickets for early May, but now they cancelled flights till the 15th. Not sure what the cancellation chances are after that.
Assuming they'll still be in business.

Because miles options are totally open now, I booked some for future. If I can't go supposed to be rebanked for free, but even if not the downside is low.
My feeling is that just like no one predicted the situation we would be in now, no one knows how long will last. Actually, no one knows anything about this.
I did the same.

Lot is government owned, so they have a better chance of staying in business

Update: I just booked on Sunday for a flight from Miami to TLV on 5/16 for 580$ RT. They just cancelled all flights through May 31, so I can use the ticket anytime in the next year with no fare difference! + a 30% off coupon for future flights (Hopefully they’ll still be around).
I can always opt for a refund per DOT regulations.
That’s a great policy compared to AA who cancelled my flight to TLV and wanted to charge me a fare difference, so I just asked for a full refund.

Does anyone know what United's policy is as far as accommadating/canceling travel when one leg of a trip is cancelled?
I booked TLV-EWR-BOS in June, and I need to fly. I used a combination of miles and cash (different reservations) for the family. However, I now see that while they are still selling TLV-EWR-BOS, there are no longer miles tickets available, and from looking at the BOS logan website it seems that the only flights from EWR are on Jetblue, and United is only flying to BOS from Chicago or Houston.
If they don't restart EWR- BOS will they cancel my whole trip? I need to get to the US somehow, and I doubt that the European connections will resume operations by then. Even ending the trip in EWR would be acceptable, I could possibly rent a car, although inconvenient. I'm assuming they won't put us on Jetblue. Do I need to change the tickets to end in EWR to make sure I don't have all my reservations cancelled at the last minute? Those are also more expensive now, both in miles and cash, and I would obviously rather have the option of flying to BOS.
TIA

Why would they cancel your whole trip? They could reroute you.
You could get off in ewr and rent or take a train, they can't force you to continue. Only issue with that is that if you are booked roundtrip then you need to make sure they remove BOS off the ticket.
