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.

Different equipment. More seat inventory. Also that's a mature route.

I am not saying that I have the definite answer, I am just giving you a counter argument to the one that says that NYC-TLV should be more likely to be restricted.
I hear.

My bad. I thought LAX-TLV was 744.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

And then they swap out equipment like they did last week and put PE revenue pax in Y
Fair warning - Any PMs sent in response to forum posts are fair game for ridicule in public.

If I book an economy ticket on Qantas because business is not available, and then business becomes available, would i be able to simply pay the difference and upgrade?
