PE is being marketed as E+ for $200 each way like on the flights to LON.
It's probably the trial for the new second aircraft that will start flying to EWR on Mar 25, because I don't see any of these flights scheduled past Mar 25

Why is the front row in Econ blocked?

On the Dreamliner specifically or in general?
Row 21 is always blocked for Gold member or higher (will open when you add a FF number) or is bookable for M class and up

It's קודש קדשים by them. Never had luck they should open unless you are GL or PL

If he has a 2 yr old, then it's at least 3

I would take any of the honeymoon seats, like 9 D and G, plus one of the side seats which face towards the aisle, so 9 K for example

Just a thought:
Anyone remember that when they placed the orders for the 787s, El Al promised that it won't cost their customers any more money because they would be saving on fuel? It's just interesting that the past 2 winter, flights to NYC never went over the $900 mark (for U class), and this year they never went below $934 besides during a few sales they had... (the average for U this winter is about $100 more than it was 2 years ago IINM)

Was looking at flights for the TLV-HKG route in August and I noticed that elal switching out their 787 to a 777 for that route in July and August. Anyone aware of this? Why would that be?

Maybe slot issues?
