2 strange things I just noticed.
1) LY 27 on Oct 26 Departs TLV on a 772 and returns from EWR MS as a 789
2) LY 7 Departs TLV to JFK on Oct 26, and when does it return exactly...?
Can anyone solve these mysteries?

If they are retiring the plane them out goes from there to the graveyard.
You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used to start a religious discussion.

I can't imagine they're retiring a 777. Unless they're taking it to retrofit.
But then how do they get the 789 from Newark MS? Is that the extra flight they have to JFK on Fri? Think they will then fly the plane from JFK to EWR? Sounds extremely unlikely to me... Something doesn't make sense here.

Who owns the 772?

I believe El Al. Do you know otherwise (that it's leased?)?

No clue, that's why I asked.

Just curious, would this help solve the mystery?

Did any of the other agents realize how premium economy is going out with empty loads lately each and every day? Just take a look this. It's all 9...  Looks like what I said came true. Elal saw people go for it, so they decided let's hike the price. Q class costed almost as much as J class  :o

The result are in. Very empty loads.

Tonight's flight to EWR went out very full. Earlier today it was W0, and a few hours before departure, I saw W3 Q3
It's gonna have to come down. It's just a matter of time. Sometime between now and next winter (when PE capacity will be 4x the amount it is now)

P class needs a refuha. It's full award+upgrades+revenue. Upgrades to PE costs more then just P revenue
