    hiya. I understood from AA that the El Al flights I booked were class G and entitled to 50 percent miles. Do you know what the class will be of the nonstops, and whether we’ll get points on AA, and if so, at what rate? thanks.

    “That said, depending on which version of the debate in the Orthodox Jewish community you listen to, taking part in this deal is only kosher if you aren’t flying on El Al so maybe that won’t work out”. Wow. I mean WOW. Really? It is ok to do this as long as you don’t screw the mother state? Very sad

    Im considering changing to a direct flight from Newark. Sure the $75 fee is there, but I can arrive at 645 am instead of 240pm, and not have to go all the way to JFK. As of now I think I’m earning 50% miles on my connecting itinerary, so as long as el al doesn’t book it as an award fare or anything lower than 50%, I should be fine.

    I am sorry I don’t understand. How does charging more for their own metal, gives you an incentive to fly them? Wouldn’t it worked the other way? Something like you can switch to the non-stop at no additional cost.

    It’s $75 each way. Also no penalty to cancel.
