But if more ppl redeem they may raise redemption price.

It's tied to their partner award chart, so they would have to raise for all partners as a whole unless they were to fundamentally alter the program by adding a separate chart for El Al.

Easy enough to do. Especially for non alliance partners.

if your account has a premier or prestige cc linked to it then all ty points earned from cc's transfer to airlines
however ty points earned from bank accounts do not transfer to airlines

Is this card applicable to us?
