A few DDF members are reporting that El Al has told them that the new deadline for switching from a connecting flight bought during the pricing glitch to a nonstop flight is 09/30. Whether that will be extended again is anyone’s guess, though it is in El Al’s interest to keep making artificial deadlines to get people to switch over…
People are also reporting that El Al has opened up availability for some flights that previously were not available and that they have been successful changing the dates of their trip by a few months!
I’ve taken some heavy flak in some Jewish media outlets over my publicizing of the deal back in August. In case you missed it, here is a copy of my response to some of the character indictments made of myself as well as more background information that doesn’t seem to be have been understood by some of my critics. It was published a few weeks ago by the Yated, a Jewish weekly, and was uploaded online with their permission.
