Iíve flown both multiple times and prefer Elal bc the AC seats is a bit claustrophobic, but most prefer AC.
Everyone I've spoken to has the said the opposite.
You like the Polaris style more than reverse herringbone?

Never flown Polaris.

I know Iím in the minority on this one, but as long as I can get a seat in the middle 2 on Elal thatís better for me. I prefer the spacious feeling to the privacy and seat angle.

I can understand why most prefer AC.

The LY 787 is the same as the UA Polaris config, though it's narrower on a 787 than a 777. Why is it definitely better than AC's 787 reverse herringbone?

Bottom line, if you're contemplating a trip to IL in the next year (after Jan 13), LY is probably the way to go.
1) Your readers are far more anticipating an LY trip report than an AC TR
2) These LY fares are FULLY refundable (unless PL charges their own fee - Expedia doesn't AFAIK), while the AC fares have a 600 CAD refund penalty.

Fare is only valid originating in YYZ, correct?
Life isn't about checking the boxes. Nobody cares.

Looks like there is a price mistake on ElAL from Toronto. Business nonstop $1,579 ow or $2,750 rt.  Booking class R.

Bookable elal.com, priceline, orbitz etc.  Fares valid until June as long R class available.

Apparently R class

With elal if you book R on YYZ route you get points for M. As its essentially M just with a Free upgrade, ticket rules are same as M
