Flying Blue Promo Awards: Fly Between Select North American And Europe, Israel, Or Russia From Just 17K Miles!

Dan-
Could U give me some info on interline baggage? Lets say I want to fly from NYC to Boston to catch the above flight…can I route my bags directly thru from NYC? Does it matter which airline I fly on from NY? Let’s say I want to fly from NY to some random European city and then catch an ELAL flight. Can I do the same with ELAL flights (given the increased security ELAL has)? (Maybe do an in-depth post on Interline baggage?). TY!

Akiva T Davidson

Is there any way to find cheap award tickets from Israel to European cities?

Aris

I cannot view available flights since I do not have any points yet on the account. Any other way to check availability on award flights?
