El Al previously announced that customers with tickets for travel through 8/31/20 would be able to make changes to travel through 4/30/21.
They are now extending that to allow travel through 12/31/21:

While El Al is waiving change fees, you will still be responsible to pay any applicable difference in fare.
Earlier this week El Al finally added a refund form, but they have yet to provide refunds for cancelled flights.
I’m disappointed that El Al hasn’t come up with creative ways to convince passengers to accept a voucher in lieu of a refund, such as offering to waive the difference in fare on the route they purchased and/or offering a 10% bonus credit for accepting a voucher.
Anyone want to guess on the over/under date for when El Al will finally issue refunds?
