I bought at Amex Travel a family ticket, and a single, will decide tomorrow which to cancel.. I’m getting the %50 platinum credit, when canceling does every $ and Point find he’s way back to his original source?.. Or it’s get complicated?

Anybody with experience?


If you beg hard enough they’ll throw in a free ticket from NY to Barcelona.


Their not allowing me to add lap infant what does that nean? I need to contact the airlines but will they charge me for each leg of the trip?
Also, anyone know which airlines carry Bassinets?

Deals Dealer

Could get complicated if you want back the points. If you have no luck HUCA..


Just want to get in before all the El Al haters magically appear: El Al’s flights within Europe are a whole different experience compared to their long hauls. They actually have a number of brand new 737-900s and the rest are 737-800s, with a real business class (not the fake European business class) and 32″ pitch in economy, with options for preferred economy seats with even better legroom. Also a full meal is served, unlike on the low cost carriers.


Can not book Lap child will they charge per leg of trip?


It’s telling me it’s working on it . It gives me a tot # and that title number ir 7 days old


Does this work for Shavous


Is this price available for shavous may 29till June 2?



If yoi cancel after yoir points are rebated to your account… You might get the refund with the original amount charged and end up with bonus points….


Doesn’t anyone know of this would work for Shavuot?may29and coming back to NYC June 2?i tried and they showed me the same old procesthank you


Just booked 4 tickets for $698 for lag boimer with a stop in Spain. Thanks Dan


Didn’t find any flights from Tel Aviv to NYC


If anybody found flights leaving May 21 and returning on June 3 from JFK, please let me know, thank you.


@Yehuda: @Yisroel Falk:
How do u book TLV to JFK?


Question: Is there any way to prolong the stop over in Europe (~7-10 days) or will that hike up the price?


I thought Elal and AA ended their codeshare agreement a few years ago? Does this deal, if booked as just AA flight numbers, earn full AA miles?


Anybody know how to book to get 50% back with MR? I searched on their website but tickets are 950$ on their site. HELP?


Dan I need to ask you a question do have an email address that I can email u mine is


Can I use Avios?

Esti Berkowitz 20,000

Thanks! Just booked a 3 week trip to Israel in July for me, my wife and our son with short layovers. This way beats the alternatives we were considering on Norwegian Air.

Found fares for $706 from 6/21 – 7/4.
Went through the whole booking process including billing and review.
Upon clicking “book”, the next page displayed: “Whoops! Something went wrong” and gave a trip #.
I tried this 3 times with the same results.
The fares are still displayed. What does this mean? Is there anything to do from here?


I would not fly LY even if you paid me!
