Update: Lufthansa Group airlines (Austrian, Brussels, Eurowings, Lufthansa, or Swiss) have added their own Israel travel waiver for flights through 11/16. Travel can be rebooked on any Lufthansa Group flight through 12/12.

Israel is facing a barrage of rocket attacks from Gaza after Israel killed Islamic Jihad senior commander Baha Abu al-Ata.

El Al announced that they will allow free changes and cancellations for flights through 11/16/19. Passengers with tickets through 11/27/19 can also fly on earlier flights without paying any fees.

These videos of rockets fired from Gaza just missing cars driving on Route 4 near Gan Yanve are just crazy:

Traffic camera video:


Bus driver dashcam video at 0:32 into the video:


Will you change your flight?

Praying everyone in the holy land stays safe and sound!

Going delta soon.

dan\'s fan

booked elal with pricline how do i cancel ? thank you in advance


Hope it’s extended to 11/30
Paid 1250
Now 850


United has a unpublished price drop reimbursement if you booked directly with them


Dan do you think United will?


Delta matching ?


I had a ticket for today with El Al and since it was an award ticket thru Qantas they told me I would need to contact Qantas directly that El Al could not change it. I had to wait over 2 hours to speak to someone at Qantas and the only option they offered was to cancel the ticket.


It is always the rule that to make changes to tickets you need to go through the booking channel. I have generally found Qantas very helpful, although it does take a long time to get through to them. I am surprised they were not more willing to accommodate you here.

Question for the helpful masses: I want to take my wife and 3 kids (1 is an infant) to israel before I start medicine residency, and the only time that works with our schedules is christmas/new years week, or presidents week – both not great for rewards flights. after the israel flight posts yesterday, i booked presidents week with my chase points – 4 nonstop roundtrip tickets on el al came out to 240k chase ultimate rewards (+$90) points using sapphire reserve. am i foolishly missing out on a much better use of my points??
I have ~2 hours left for the free cancellation 🙂


hope free cancellation is extended to 11/19


what if i am in Israel and i have a flight out on 11/19 what are the chances i could cancel it


call them and ask


Dan, are we sure that nobody was hurt in that video? The front two cars indeed were nearly missed, but another car behind those seems to go into the cloud and not come out. I hope they are ok.


To my understanding there were 33 people injured in this particular rocket attack


Nobody was hurt,, only light damage to cars.
