Hold off with the excitement. Many dates not showing ex-NYC, and so far no reports ex-TLV

Seems like ex-EWR is fixed but not ex-JFK.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

They have the same availability that they had over the phone/SMS, which is way less of what ELAL has on their website.

Not quite. Seems random.
