Help

Dan I think there is something wrong with DansDeals.
It shows that there are comments awaiting moderation while showing the comment from other ppl.

Shaina

Hi
Is it only for those dates.can I book from October to March?

S

Not seeing these prices on Priceline or Google, but Jetblue.com but I see $400-600 on jetblue.com. Maybe a mistake though because they’re saying 12:35am flight on 12/10/22 which is shabbos? That’s the flight that auto selected when I searched Dec 4-11

Saul

I made this mistake and booked tickets on shabbos by accident. Any advice?

S

Cancel within 24 hours?

Moe

get a heter from a rav. hefsed merubah.

aron

cancel is usually free within 24 hour

robert

Showing as over 1000 to go from 12/26-1/2 No idea how anyone is getting this done for less than $300.
Maybe someone can tell me what I am doing wrong

Texas Totty

I don’t see it on Priceline but yes on JetBlue. Scroll down from the home page to the low fare finder.
Anyone know if I can fly from Texas to TLV with this price and stopover in NYC? It’s half the price of just flying directly to NY.

Joseph

Can Orbitz be cancelled for a refund?

Jak

Yes

Jak

Within 24 hours

yeshiva man

Any bein hazmanim dates?

Pad18

I am here for the comments

David Weiss

If it doesn’t work, please try expedia, for me it worked.

Joe

For what dates?

dsa

do you hog all the succos dates before posting it?

Yechiel Z

Not nice comment. Be grateful.

Also – if he does book his own before posting – it’s perfectly understandable!

Tirtse Modana

i Agree to Disagree

Gary

Of course. You’ve been reading DDMS long enough to know how much Dan would love to fly AA economy class with his family from NYC to Israel.

notDans

Yes. Bought ALL those tickets. Every one.

Dr. Incisor

can i book it and only take the return flight and not board on the departing flight?

Yochai

Some dates as early as September

Rachel

Booked for $339 for dates 1/4/23-1/16/23

bkykn

how do you book it?

N

Dont work 🙁

JB

Prices are going up slowly, seeing $550 range.

BaltimoreGuy

Just booked 11/23-12/1 for $364 a ticket, under $2000 for my family of 5! Amazing! Thanks 🙂

Bmorealso

From BWI to TLV or JFL to TLV?

BaltimoreGuy

jfk to TLV. It won’t let you try BWI to TLV. But i’m seeing that prices are rising. I’m guessing all the ‘cheap seats’ are being bought up by everyone.

Avraham

I got 5 for $338 a piece. Short trip though, 3 free days and shabbos. But for the price it’s worth it for a quick get away. Unfortunately I have to get to JFK from Cleveland now.. to drive or to fly, that’s the next question.

David

what dates are you flying? how did you find it?

Moose

Lax-tlv $448

11/24-12/5

ellen

Can probably stack with Amex $80 off $200 at Jetblue if booked directly with Jetblue.

Bg

Can you book for a weekend

s

looks like its expired

leo

anything for beginning September

leo ssdd

anything for the beginning of September

Eli

Can it be upgraded to business class?

B

I would love to know

Jonathan

JetBlue wouldn’t do it for me and said I need to talk to AA directly. AA said they can’t do anything and any changes must be with with JetBlue since they sold the ticket. Just cancelled my tickets.

shmuff

On JetBlue website it says no refundable. Is that after the 24 hours?

yelped

Yes, first 24 hours is always refundable.

Jay

If booked on JetBlue.com, anyone know if Mosaics have free cancelations on this after the 24 hour period?

Anon

Thanks, Dan. You da man. Been for a long while. Even if these get cancelled, ’twas exciting! 🙂

Agoldsc1

IDK if B6 or AA decides whether or not to honor these fares, but if it’s B6, you can be certain that they’ll be cancelled.

Anon

Tried looking up my JetBlue confirmation number… “There was an error processing your request. Please try again. If you receive this error repeatedly, please contact 1-800-JETBLUE (538-2583) for assistance.”

I hope they don’t make me sads…

Anon

AA says “Status: Ticketed” :hopefully: stays that way

(It’s okay. I also didn’t closely read the post.)

Book with matrix.com

mordy

Ticket prices changed from $489.93 to $609.93. Because prices change often, we recommend booking now to lock in this price.

FROM ORBITZ

R

Anyone know why I can’t book a lap infant? Tells me that they x book a lap infant in international flight?? Baby will be 1

Jack

Lap infant can’t be booked online needs to use a TA

mendylab

Can bo booked directly on JetBlue.com

united

can be booked online using amex travel

yelped

Please pay the $300 to get the infant their own seat! Will be the best $300 you ever spent.

Anon

That’s what I did! I’ve read this statement before, so I knew!

Shein

You do not want to travel to Israel with a 1 year old lap “infant”. Buy him the ticket. Thank me later. I’ve been traveling with babies since my first was 1 month old and that was the only time he was a lap infant (except for some short domestic flights). Past the newborn stage for longer flights they need their own seat so they can be in their car seat.

yungerman

most date sold out

Dan
Who’s birthday today?

Chaim

Any succos dates available for that price?

ST

is the Orbitz also 24 hour refundable?

Chaim

If anyone sees any sukkos deals leaving jfk Thursday after yom kippir and coming back after sukkos please reply to this comment

joe

worst possible time. there are only a handful of flights to get to israel after yom kippur. and youll easily spend $3,000.00

Morhaz

I can’t find this deal at all. JetBlue doesn’t even recognise TLV or Israel. What am I missing? Thanks

yungerman

any dates still avail???

Steven

The prices stay low until you try to book it on any of the sites then it jumps up to almost double when you actually try to book it

Aron

Any July or August dates?

aaron

does not work for me

Sam

Should I rather book a ticket on jetblue.com or with chase ultimate rewards? Who will have better customer service if need to change anything?

Jay

Can be booked with Chase rewards, just saw Dec. 13 – Dec 26 – $276 or points

B l

Seems to be crazy availability now with the fare finder

abe

what am i doing wrong when i click on its its cheap but when i try to purchase its reg price

JR

Dang think it’s dying quickly. Loading times taking longer and keeps crashing.

QTB

ITs working on JetBlue but not on orbitz or priceline, what am i missing??
Id rather book on there bec of the 24 hour free cancellation policy

Yankelsheester

I booked sep 14-19 $489

Rena

I booked tickets individually, so I put my children in as being adults with the right birthday but wrong year. I believe I’ve read on this site that I can do that. Is that true? And can I/should I combine the tickets to one reservation? Thanks!

y

can you post a link to that? that would help for my bachurl!

Rita Safdiah

try so hard didn’t got it could u help please

Eli W

The shorter trips are sold out. And I am not gonna book a longer trip and pay for hotel an extra 5 days, because I saved $4-500 on a ticket.

Shmulie

Keep getting this message even for different dates

Oh no, the trip you selected is no longer available.
Don’t worry though, we have plenty of other great deals for you to choose from.

Sara

Can I book a flight and only use the TLV to JFK leg of the journey or will they flag it that no one used the incoming flight?

CopyJosh

Missing any leg cancels the remaining itinerary of any trip.

justmeha

what’s the chance we can change the dates afterwards like last deal?

Naf naf

I booked straight with Jetblue. Do I have 24 hour cancellation (only realized after that I should’ve booked on priceline)?

A

If have jb plus card do i get free luggage or not since operated by AA

Deisy

I also have this card. American gives u 1 suitcase anyways so doesnt matter. But points wise, best to book on jetblue

A

Dan said better not to book on jetblue in case need to cancel and what do u mean point wise? Can’t be booked with jetblue points as far as i know..
American only gives one carry on, checked is extra.
But my question remains if jetblue card gives extra checked bag?

Deisy

Points wise meaning 6x per dollar spent. I booked my flight & was given a check bag each. Sooo ‍♀️

A

Didn’t realize counts as a jetblue booking as it was orbitz

Deisy

ahhh no it does not. I booked on Jetblue.com

A

Oh jetblue didn’t have the same fare for some reason..

know it all

seems like caught on all dates searching went up

dsd

@dan. please cross out most dates. just tried dec 4-11 its giving me$ $800

SK

2 out of 5 of my reservations were canceled so far

JR

Ouch I spent so much time and couldn’t book so maybe was better off this way. Good luck

shay

through who did you book it?

Anon

ayayay

SK

They were canceled because they were duplicate or overlapping itineraries. They also canceled one leg of a 3rd reservation which was the one I wanted. jetBlue chat was able to reinstate the reservation that I wanted and cancel the others

Moshe

12:00Am Canceled

Yankelsheester

They cancelled your reservation?

Hopeful

Any dates still available?

Than you sir

Oh no, the trip you selected is no longer available.
Don’t worry though, we have plenty of other great deals for you to choose from.

Has anyone booked under $600 in the last 15 minutes?

WAM

DDE

Carol

My flight got cancelled by airline. RIP

Yankelsheester

Intresting having better luck now on Orbitz than on Priceline

Joy Travel

Dead!

CollegeGirl

Anything left or is it fully dead?

Andrew

Managed to book for $399. Didn’t realize how late the flight will arrive Friday. Does it make sense not to cancel and possibly be able to change the date/time?

A

Just got this. Doesn’t really make sense but I guess it’s their excuse.

Our records indicate that your recent attempt to book with us, confirmation code xxxxx, was actually a duplicate of an existing JetBlue reservation. Because of this, the duplicate flight(s) has been cancelled and refunded back to the original form of payment.

Please make any future changes or updates to your originally booked reservation. If you have any questions, feel free to call us at 1-800-JETBLUE (538-2583).

Sincerely,

JetBlue

Joy Travel

Jetblue has now fully blocked American Israel inventory. Congrats whoever got in!

Anon

LOL! True!

Jamie

Ty Dan booked 3 tickets gonna take family for Rosh hashana Tom kippur and sukkot now I need a hotel deal for a month that won’t break the bank

Yankelsheester

David

Dd

Don’t be stupid. $438 is good with or without luggage

BY

Got em thank you Dan!

In the booking frenzy I just made up birthdays for most of the PAX. Will this be a problem? Must I change them?

QTB

THEY SHUT IT DOWN. CANT BOOK ANYMORE ON JETBLUE!

WAM

This room is small, we can all hear you. No need to shout.

David

does this include luggage. I see it for $438 on priceline, I want to make sure it includes luggage before booking. Thank you

Dov

David

Dov

SC

Dov

somewhat low maintenance guy

Watch out those of us who double booked seem to be ripe targets for cancelation

SC

They usually don’t give you problems.
What dates did you find?

CHULENT

ANYONE SEE ANY DATES STILL AVAILABLE FOR LESS THAN $600?

Yankelsheester

Sep 14 19 still $489 on orbitz

FuelIsToHigh

Why are you yelling?

Yankelsheester

Orbitz still allows bookings

A

Booked January, about 600 each is this a good deal?

Sheeseer

Yes!

Smokey

Wow Dan smoking hot in truest sense! Hope this works out for everyone.

yehuda

is the deal over

burech

Any deals for October 3-18?

Yu

Dan, if they make a schedule change.. will they allow me to change the date? I’m asking bc I booked 7 tickets to depart on a Friday.

somewhat low maintenance guy

Why would you book on a Friday?!
you are asking for trouble.

Moses

Booked 2 reservations, same outbound date, different return date, on the second reservation they cancelled the outbound flight and left me just with the return flight, anything to do if I want to keep the second return date?

Gary

Can get auto cancelled for duplicate booking

Eli

Same. Working on it. Keep me posted if you’re successful

Yochai

Seems dead now. Calendar doesn’t show up on JetBlue.com

Leah

I tried every weekend. Working on it since 11 pm. No luck 🙂

A

What airline should these be credited to jetblue or Aa?

Yed

Dead!
B6 removed all availability from their stock.

A

Isn’t amex platinum better card to use, with 5x points?

SC

alright, looks like we missed this one at this point. If its meant to be Hashem will send it again! Thank you Dan- you should be gebentched!!!

Moses

BEWARE!
THE RETURN DATE ON JET BLUE WAS CHANGED TO A DAY EARLIER. IF YOU SEARCHED ON JET BLUE FOR FEB 4-FEB 10, ON YOUR CONFIRMATION WILL BE WRITTEN FEB 9 FOR RETURN DATE, HOWEVER ON AA IT WILL STILL SHOW FEB 10

Leslie Strassberg

Dead!!!

HZGTAX

Booked 11/23-/1/29 through Expedia. If I cancel after 24 hours will I get a JetBlue 12 travel bank credit, or AA 12 month travel credit?

Joege

@dan I was wondering the same

ross

Good morning, just woke up and saw this great deal! I’ll check it out after drinking my coffee and doing the Daf, I’m sure there’s no rush.

Expedia

Possible to cancel within 24? How do I do this?

Expedia

Yes I see I just logged in to manage my reservation on Expedia and it says free cancelation within 24 hours.

The best way to cancel a AA ticket purchased on JetBlue.com

1. Download the JetBlue app.
2. Login with your username and password, start chatting, (bottom right, More>help>Chat with us)
3.System will tell you that there is long wait time, put the app on background, go about your day, within 20 minutes to an hour.
4. Leave the app on background and go about your day.
5. you should receive a notification that if you would like to continue chatting please respond. respond.
6. and an agent will come into the chat, message him you JetBlue booking number and that you would like to cancel your itinerary. he will do it on the spot.

In most cases that’s the fastest and easiest way to cancel, however Make sure to set a reminder if Chat doesn’t work out within a few hours to call.

Or just give a few hours and Jetblue will do it themselves…

This doesn’t work – psa if you plan on cancelling within 24 hours , call early, hold time is 2 hours

Saul

What’s the deal with the $25 service charge per person just for waiting on hold???

Moses

Chat is also available on the Desktop version

deal

anyone know of any dates still avail for under $500? Tried going through each website.. pretty flexible

E

$550 In Feb is a good price?

Motti

For anyone asking, this includes a free suitcase and free seat selection (on aa.com). Meals can be selected within 30 days of the flight.

Anon

Well, I ain’t been cancelled yet.

Hopefully I get to be on my first Dan’s Deals flight, where we all know exactly why we’re all on this same flight! Do we sing too?

Anon

Still ain’t been cancelled. Wow. Pleasantly surprised. I guess they can’t because AA near-instantly ticketed me. Lucky!

A

I booked with chase sp however will likely downgrade due to annual fee, will i still get the benefits?

on_hold_again

I understand that Dan has a partnership with booking sites and I appreciate of all that he does, but he has to stop recommending that we go through booking sites if the same prices are available directly through the airlines. These booking sites go out of there way to make it difficult to do anything with your reservation once made and the airlines won’t speak to you either. Especially with these cheaper airfares. Book direct to avoid issues!

Shein

You’re not wrong. With these third party tickets and often bulk ticket pricing (which you won’t know you have) it’s very hard or impossible for airlines to do anything to them. A regular (not basic) economy ticket directly with the airline is very flexible.

Shmooger

I appreciate your honesty. Maybe you should find a different deal site to stick to if you don’t like his advice,

Shein

Once you know how to recognize airline ticket stock, you’ll know who *has* to make the changes (if the particular ticket rules allow for changes). If they refuse (common with Priceline, Expedia, etc) ask politely for a supervisor. They often send to airline when they are the ones that have to make the changes (and they know it).

Challah Baker

+1 @Dan. I booked direct through JetBlue, I used the callback option at 11:30 pm last night. They didn’t call me back until 5 am, but once I did reach a rep they canceled it fairly quickly. If I would’ve booked through Priceline or Expedia etc. the cancellation process would have taken me less than two minutes.

Jessie Katz

How come the Jetblue best fares flight search doesn’t show any tickets to Tel Aviv?

Anon

Looking for advice. Assuming these tickets stick, this would be my fourth trip to Israel. I’m thinking of splitting my trip between Israel and Greece (first time). Good idea or bad idea? Family of 6. Two weeks. Would you go somewhere else nearby? I’d be paying cash for the fares or maybe using BA Avios.

T.

Hi Dan, I just want to say a tremendous thank you for this deal. I booked my flights to Israel for just over $300. I am thrilled as I could not afford it at the 1,000+ price range and was so grateful that your post made it possible!!!

Andy

Ditto
Thanks, Dan. You da man. Been for a long while. Even if these get cancelled, ’twas exciting!

Anon

:salute:

Joe Gee

@Dan – what happens after 24 hours? Are these tickets cancellable for a fee credit?

HZGTAX

Same question, booked through Expedia

Redgoldfish

Dan, thank you so much! I wasn’t able to replicate the $300 price, but I did manage to snag tickets for my entire family in November for $458 each on Jet Blue’s website. Do you think Jet Blue will cancel the tickets?
Also, the system didn’t allow me to book a lap ticket for my infant so I bought her a $458 regular ticket- would Jet Blue convert it to a lap ticket and refund the difference?
If I do decide to cancel the tickets, how would I do that?

Anon

Every hour that passes is a small good sign.

chaim

thanks! booked tickets for 500 plus including tax. what do i do if I didn’t get my son’s ticket. now it’s twelve hundred plus dollars. if i want to add him, can i wait? are tickets likely to get cheaper or can i book mileage tickets?

Moses

Called JetBlue requested a automatic call back, received a call back after 2 hours.
Excellent Agent.
Booked 2 tickets same outbound flight, different return dates, system automatically cancelled the first part of the second reservation because of duplicate, agent helped me to cancel the 2nd leg of the first reservation, refunded me half price, now have 2 separate 1 way reservations

Canadian

@Dan, it’s time for a DD Podcast on all of this, why does it happen to airlines, and are these really price mistakes, do you see a pattern on when it happens (i think I do) and HOW DO YOU FIND THEM?

Ben

There was actually an interview from Nesanel Ganz a few weeks ago in the ami that went through these issues with Dan!

HZGTAX

Anyone know the cancelation policy once the 24 hours passes? Booked through Expedia
Is it a AA voucher or do you need to rebook travel within 12 months?

HZGTAX

Got this response from Expedia

According to the cancellation policies from the airline the tickets are non refundable however for the cancellation a credit for a future flight will be applied. At the time of rebooking the reissue fee will be waive however difference in prices may apply. The new flight has to be rebooked within 1 year from the original ticket issue date. You must keep the same type of route as the original reservation., in this case international. The validating carrier for this trip is JetBlue airways however since the original flight is operated by American Airlines the new flight can also be rebooked with American Airlines.

Dan+and+JJ+Fan

Let me first start by saying thanks to Dan & JJ for another money savings opportunity. I booked $550 R/T during Yeshiva Week in January.

I booked initially on Priceline, originating JFK

I also booked same itinerary on Jet Blue website, this time originating in another city ($615 R/T) and flying thru JFK on same flights as booked on Priceline. My intention was to fly to JFK instead of driving from out of town.

However….Jetblue autocancelled the 2nd reservation. The American website showed a flight credit being issued, not a refund. Here’s how I was able to secure a refund:

Chatted with JetBlue (60 minute wait). Chat agent had to speak with supervisor; turns out she wasn’t able to do the refund…asked to call me on the telephone, we spoke and then she transferred me to Jet Blue’s “InterLine Department” – another 30 minute wait on hold but voila….they were able to put thru the refund.

I guess I’ll be driving to NY. Overall savings $300 based on current flight costs for my dates.

Check your e mail confirmation carefully that what you paid for in the website. I booked a return flight leaving Israel and returning Friday morning. The e mail confirmation changed everything to Shabbos. I called them and spoke to a supervisor who said they show a Shabbos return even though I booked a Friday return. I had to cancel.

FlyingBlue

How smart from them, they want to avoid honoring those tickets so they change them to shabbos flights…

No. Don’t attribute to malice what can more easily be explained by stupidity (or incompetence in this case).

I saw the same thing happen after I clicked on flights on the best fares calendar of availability. This was not a post-booking Enron thing. This is just a website failure.

I booked by mistake with my chase freedom instead of my chase sapphire, is there anyway to change it?

FlyingBlue

When I logon on aa.com with my ticket number it shows cancelled. does it mean its cancelled? still shows active in GDS

Israeli

Can you book with Jetblue points for this deal even though its operated by AA?

@Dan is there any way to upgrade to business on American with $ or points if I booked economy (through the deal on Tuesday night)?

My tickets seem to have stuck as well, BH. Thank you Dan! My first DD flight! Booked my family of 5 for $364 round trip, each. With insurance, total came out to $1900. I was able to choose seats and everything on AA app. I booked directly through JetBlue’s website.

@Dan I booked the ticket with my Chase Freedom instead of Chase Sapphire, Is there any way to change it, so I should be able to receive the benefits of the Sapphire?
