You can transfer AMEX Or Citi points to Qantas at a 1:1 ratio, Barclays points at a 1.4:1 ratio, Capital One points at a 2:1.5 ratio, or Marriott points to Qantas at a 60K:25K ratio.

Qantas doesn’t charge fuel surcharges for El Al flights.
Infants are free (besides taxes). They also get a regular checked baggage allowance of 23 kg.

QF runs regular transfer bonus promos. Be sure to transfer 500 points into your account and opt in for emails to get targeted.

Search availability on elal.com
Flights are bookable from NYC, BOS, MIA, and LAX.

SMS is the easiest way to contact Qantas. The number is 1-478-772-6827. This can be used for airports that are unavailable online.

NYC-TLV is 37.8k points each way in Y, 63k in premium economy and 78k in J.
On 9/18/19 premium economy will be going up to 70.8k and J will be going up to 90k (each way).
Cancellation fee is 6k points.

This may have been mentioned before, but I want to book my friend and his wife tickets from my qantas account. I know that this is officially not allowed. But will qantas let me make the reservation? What are the odds of getting busted?

I was able to find TLV-EWR by doing a search for TLV-BOS. it pulled up a LY flight from TLV-EWR and a seperate AA flight EWR-BOS. When I searched for just TLV-EWR nothing came up

Zero availability on qantas booking elal direct - NYC-TLV
« Reply #749 on: July 25, 2019, 03:03:18 PM »
Just searched dozens of dates throughout the whole summer and winter. I don't any seats in any class available for elal direct. All the options are for other partners (some using elal to connect)
Game over?
