Relax. Even this rule had plenty of exceptions. El Al has a plane sitting in EWR every day for 7 hours (and 42 hrs over the weekend).
IINM, most short haul domestic flights don't operate through the night either.
After a TLV-NYC flight longer cleanup is needed.....

Not until Sep 12.
And that first flight availability is now Y0 and C0 (not sure if it's sold out or blocked for staff/elected officials etc.)

When i visited the boeing factory in July someone who works closely with Elal on their Dreamliner Strategy said they would start with EWR than a mix between Asia and NYC as they get more planes
LAX wasn't even anywhere near high on the list unfortunately - not even for an interior remodeling. He said the strategy is, unless your due anyways to overhaul the interiors, you use it until it really needs the complete overhaul. Sad..

Qantas points may become a hot commodity now that they introduced premium cabin booking for LY...

heard one 2nd hand report that it worked calling in.
Not sure if that's true or a fluke or something.
Worth a shot asking QF rep to long sell

Does it work for all other routes, or is it only for the Far East routes? (SAA used to be have LY as a partner IINM, but was only good for TLV-JNB, don't know about J or F).

How is QF's YQ on LY?

QF works for every route other then NA.
SAA still has LY partnership.
QF's YQ is the same as LY's
