SIZZLING! RUN!!! JFK To Tel Aviv For Just $336.80 Round-Trip With Tax!

435

Update #2, 3:15pm: I think it’s safe to say that this deal is now dead.

So, how many of you booked a ticket like this? Has anyone ever seen such a cheap ticket to Israel for Pesach before? Just $336!

 

Update: Not working well on Orbitz now, but I just booked a ticket on Expedia! Expedia tickets are cancellable until 11:59pm PDT the day after ticketing!

Bookable on Orbitz (with full mileage earning, free cancellations until 10pm CT the day after you book, and price assurance refunds) or direct from the airline.

Routing is on Swiss from JFK to Zurich and on El Al from Zurich to Tel Aviv.

Valid for outbound travel between 10/28 and 03/19.

A quick look around the net shows once again that DansDeals.com in THE site follow !
Great Great job!

(Btw Dan, DDF down ?!…)

I’m hearing a lot of things from people. Someone said El Al told them it wasn’t a mistake and they’d be honoured. Another person said it was a mistake but they’ll honour it. Another person said they’ve already been refunded..

I’ve tried calling the NY office 3 times and every single time I get disconnected.

sam

anyone know if i can extend my stopover on the return?

Ed

Tried on fly.com, kayak, expedia, and Orbitz with no luck

Linsane

EL AL must be using the same Computer software as Knight Capital 😉

eli

she

from fly.com “We’re sorry, the $387 fare is no longer available. The new best fares are below. “

shlomo

dear dan
.why is it that people were getting this deal at 11 am and my email was received at 3pm ?
do you send them at different times to different addresses?

@Jacob Singer: what website?

bigman

@minyan man: are u serious or kidding? please tell me. my son will be devastated if i tell him we cant go because i thought there was a minyan and there wasnt.

ag

I cant seem to get it!! any ideas?

jj

@shlomo— ditto…Dan, can u possibly alert us by a special EMAIL when these crazy deals come up?

Bern

Booked 2 txt for $369 via Expedia 4 hours ago for Nov 1 till Nov 14. Thought I’d get a 3rd for my son. Too late. now Expedia want over a $1,000.00

Anonymous

@shlomo:
I assume your referring to the feedburner email that generates automatically at 3 every day. Assuming thats it, its out of Dans control. There is no email automatically telling people when a new deal is posted. If you want, you can follow Dan on twitter or Facebook. You can also check the site a thousand times a day 🙂

sol

Now to get bumped on these flights lol

@Yehuda: Did u ever consider that it’s the airline itself to generate interest or u gotta be so negative

meech

got 2 adults 1 child from 19th march- 9 april (350$) (a bit late.. but i was very pressured and didnt bother checking april 4 lol) n than i got 2 adults 20th march-april 4 (500$) but didnt have where to put the infant into- so its missing an infant and now they wanna charge me 200$ for the infant.. i didnt do anything yet im still brainstorming how to get an infant on for cheaper.. but yay! thanks

Sara

@sol: How did you get them to change a name? My husband booked our sons last name as my last name. ( i never changed mine)

ari

Anonymous

@nachmi: what site???

Eli

@ag: Im the same i also cant get the flights. on Fly.com it shows the discounted rate, but as soon as i hit BOOK it shows up different rates. Originally i had locked in the rate with Cheap-o-air, then when i put my CC info it told me the rate switched to $1000+!!
Any ideas on dates with working discounted rates?

eli

Dan
david 14

@milechazzer:i cannot understand why you should be so generous to the airlines when in matter of fact they keep on charging & restricting us in every way possible so if some times we can get a ticket for a normal price y should we hesitate?

eli

@sam: DONT CANCEL! I CAN BUY THE CHANUKA ONES OFF YOU

jj

Dan—i signed up for the twitter thing after the Hong Kong deal, but i dont check twitter regularly..Mosy people check their email frequently. It would be a great bonus to be alerted by email. Thanks!

Sam

AMAZING 🙂 Was going anyways for Chanukah and was waiting for a good deal – this was better than I expected to find 😉 lol Thanks Dan !!!

mike fein

@329- its called a joke David

If anyone has a change of plan and can’t use their 2 tickets, please email me at qwertycl@yahoo.com and I would gladly buy the tickets from you.

I was planning on going with the wife to visit our families that couldn’t make it to the wedding and spending this much as opposed to $1,000+ is much nicer!

David

I purchased a ticket for Jan 9-22 but forgot that I have a wedding that week. Anyone have an extra Chanukkah ticket that they’re willing to trade or sell?

Sara

How do you change a name??? I called Expedia and El Al and they said it cant be done???

Moshe

If anyone has a change of plan and can’t use their 2 tickets, please email me at mschwartz2000@gmail.com and I would buy the tickets from you.

Sholom

If anyone has 2 tickets they dont want please contact me thanks so much 410-262-7773.

sol

@Sara: Which site did you book with? In your case should not be to hard to explain the issue and ask them to honor. They will have to contact Elal to get approval but I would think they will go along. Keep trying if wont work with 1 rep try another!!! If your husband entered correct than they should definitely feel compelled to change & even if not explain the issue and dont let up-they went 2 superiors etc till went thru..

sol

@david: Would try to tell them that the names were entered wrong etc. NO ACHRIUS! will tell you tat they will need to go thru el-al and wont be easy ..in my case was booked by me for me so easy 2 explain the mistake..

israel12

would like 2 point out 2 every1 that is going in2 buying frenzy that tickets r non-transferable so unfortunately if u missed u missed!

Askan

All you people who missed the deal- why don’t you get all dansdeals tweets?? Don’t choose not to be informed and then come crying!! Your right not every tweet is relevant, it’s still 100% worth getting them

truly nowhere

I honestly DON’T see why everyone is in a 2nd hand market frenzy over these cheap tickets. The chances of having the names changed on tickets that were accidentally sold at a huge loss is little to none. There have already been repeated reports that elal will not change these tickets. And why should they? They have absolutely no obligation to and they KNOW exactly what people are up to; buying a large number of cancellable
tickets and trying to sell and transfer the ones they don’t want

sol

@Sara:email me @ sollybgood@gmail.com can try..no promises

Rob

@dansdeals like your site but you have some of the least informed readership of all deal sites. People calling the airline and orbitz to see if it’s mistake before its dead. People calling to add an infant before its dead. Bad idea, alerts the airline. Just buy an extra seat it’s so cheap. Anyway can you from now on put a disclaimer on your fare mistakes etc that says DO NOT CALL

Also for everyone else how do you know you can name change to a totally different person? Seems unlikely to me.

Queensdealman

I got tickets 11/21-12/2 thanksgiving week for 420…… If any1has extra pls let me know so I can purchase for the dates from you

OG

I need to call and add a lap seat for a one year old- did anyone have any luck getting the 10% from the original flight price or 10% of what it is right now?
Also, can we upgrade to business on american airlines points?

gi

If anyone have 3 tickets for pesach-I will pay right away.email me: gkirsh09@gmail.come -Thank you!!!!

mimi

can you change the dates? I want to go earlier

Chanie

Does anyone know about luggage allowance?

abc

@Rob: +1 or keep them in the forums

bigman

anyone else on the 11/14 flight at 6 pm jfk-zurich and then 945 to tlv?

MarkS

Alright guys, sorry to burst you bubbles but: A)Names on tickets can’t be changed B)In the event that you somehow convince them to change the name, they will make you pay up to the current price of a ticket –as they are reissuing it. Therefore, you don’t end up gaining anything and might as well just book a ticket yourself on elal.com for that price. C)If you didn’t already add your infant, call Elal and tell them that you need to add an infant. They will probably charge you around $125 (10% of current ticket prices). D) I repeat, names on tickets can’t be changed E) Just because a whole bunch of misinformed commenters assumed that you can change the name, rules A and D still apply. F) Probably not a smart idea to post your phone number and email addresses online like that. Spammers just love digging up phone numbers and email addresses to send junk to G) Reread rules A,D & E! YOU CANT CHANGE THE NAMES! I don’t care how much you’re willing to pay, how badly your wife needs a vacation, how many minutes you missed the deal by, or how happy your family in Israel that you haven’t seen in thirty years will be. NAMES CANT BE CHANGED!!

@Rob: @truly nowhere: @yitz: You guys are incredible, you rip off your own airline , did you think workers might be fired or laid off etc, and you worry about kohanim?

bostonbali

@ez:
EZ – you’re a fool if you think that alerting airlines and travel agencies doesn’t get deals like this shut down prematurely.
I’ve witnessed dozens of mistake fares through FT. Those that fly under the radar last a lot longer than those mistake fares where somebody calls the airline/travel agency and makes them aware of it.
Golden rule is don’t call until the deal is long gone, so that others have a chance to book it! Be’hatzlacha.

Jay

Looking for tickets. Please email natjay321@yahoo.com I will pay with Paypal or whichever other method you’d like.

Please email me asap.

Thanks

@Sara: it’s prob easier to just legally change ur son’s name than to change the ticket…

clevelander

dan, what do u recommend to your fellow Clevelanders as the best way to get to JFK for our flights?

LWG

@bostonbali:

Any idea if there is a way to change the name by proving I am the same person? I made it under my maiden name, while my passport has my married name ( maybe sending in a marriage certificate??) Any experience or knowledge about what I can do?
THanks!

the deal is dead

el al told me they will honor all the tickets .but no name and time changes

J

Hey, the deal is dead, did they say that today? Last I heard, them honoring these was still up in the air

@ MARK

SO ARE YOU SAYING YOU CANT CHNAGE THE MAMES?

Tweet From Elal

Thanks for your patience. Details/ decisions re incorrect fares that were briefly sold on Monday are not finalized. We will update tomorrow.

bostonbali

@LWG:

You SHOULD be able to fly if you bring a copy of your marriage certificate showing the maiden name under which the tickets were purchased, and your married name, which appears on your passport.

I recall reading about this sort of a situation before, probably on Flyertalk.

Anne

I missed it… sigh…
