Standard price for J was always $3500 besides for ex-TLV on the day flights

My guess that the winter $3k price will go up to $3500 and the summer from $3500 to over $4000

In any case the fact that F is gone still doesn't answer why J class out of EWR should price differently than JFK. Heck until  now JFK had the much nicer 744 and they knew that people routinely paid a lot more to e on that flight and still they understood that J class should have the same price.

Quite sure that's "Rishon L'tzion", not Ashdod. Was the worst plane in their fleet.

Wonder if we'll see a price war between LY and UA in Newark, or see UA speed up delivery on the 2nd new 777 for the route.

My guess that the winter $3k price will go up to $3500 and the summer from $3500 to over $4000
My guess is in the end they will have more planes, increase frequency and prices will stay stable or come down

EWR flight will probably be Z0J0 once the person responsible shows up for work

In today's Globes, Maimon says: "The prices are subject to supply, demand, and competition, not to the introduction of new airplanes."

Not sure how aware he is of prices anyway

I think that Elal charging more for business class just because now they aren't miles behind the competition is like United charging more for promising not to beat the cr*p  out of you.

An anonymous source (that's the way of reporting these days  ;) ) told me that they will upgrade the food service on the new planes as well. You will be able to order a specific meal from menu etc. Guess they wanna keep up the idea to fly ELAL for their food.

Interesting.
I find it surprising they made no mention of this during their launch events. Isn't that something they would already advertise?

For Mehadrin?
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

If he would know this info I would've posted it.  ;)

I will try to dig in further. If the option would be for Mehadrin it would be really awesome.
