SFO-TLV still an exception market on the high-com contract (2% com vs ??%)

They're not blocking 60 seats for that
And you didn't explain why the return is blocked...

And they usually would give economy seats to staff.

LY pushes off UP devaluation, can redeem awards at the old rates until 10/14 (as oppose to 04/30).

"With regard to redeeming points by issuing bonus tickets, Matmid members are entitled to use their rights according to the current price for UP flight bonus tickets, until October 14, 2018."

Starting Oct 28, Berlin (besides Thurs morning) and KBP (besides Fri) will be having business class once again. Departures will still be from terminal 1, so there's no King David Lounge access. R class revenue starts at $769 RT to Berlin and $779 RT to KBP. No minimum stay required.
