So for example



1st seat is $1,114.76
2nd seat is $270
Infant is about $112
Total maximum for adult+inf in guaranteed seat: $1,496.76 with possible refund of $270.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

Why assume the carrier surcharge is excluded? It's not a tax.

Why is the 2nd seat $270?

Good question. I'm not sure why I was under the impression that I saw base fare somewhere.

Interesting. They refund the second seat if there's an empty seat anywhere in Economy on the plane. And you don't pay taxes. I'm assuming that includes YQ?
That's what I asked...

Southwest allows you to book a free 2nd seat in the first place.
Good time to start a thread on this if someone wants.

Golus is becoming way too comfortable for us. We feel entitled. Some of us will blow it for the rest of us.

If someone's psak says not to sit next to a woman under any circumstances, he really needs to limit flying to almost never. It means being ready to ask politely once, and if not forthcoming to walk off the plane and forfeit the tickets.

Very well said.

Say what?

Why wouldn't everyone book a 2nd seat if it's free?

You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used to start a religious discussion.

Yes.
This is the other side of the story and I'll let everyone decide who is right
It was on the CDG-TLV leg.
PAX asked a FA politely if he can help him switch, to which he replied with attitude that he can either sit in his seat or get off the aircraft, they started arguing and at some point the FA told him "you can fly elal if you wants this privilege" and just walked away, so he went and sat down in a empty fake J seat.  FA came to PAX again and said "you have to pay for this seat" so PAX offered to pay but FA refused. At the end they moved someone else from Y to J and he got that seat.
Sitting down in a cabin you didn't pay for, is totally unacceptable IMHO, and it's יצא שכרו בהפסידו

Nothing there about AF or other international carriers.
