Other Middle East and Africa Frequent Flyer Programs - Basinette Seats on 747-400
I am trying to confirm that seats 46 H&J
are basinette seats on El Al's 747-400
I assume you already tried this- I tried finding a seat map on the ElAl site to no avail. I can't think of anything else except to get in touch with someone who is about to fly and ask them to check when they're on the plane. Then call them once they've arrived.

Right, basinette seats on a 747-400 are in the following rows
2A,C - 2H,K
10A,C - 10H,K
72A,C - 72H,K (upper deck)
I hope this is of some help for you, foe future reference call up ELAL and ask them to send you the Flight Schedual booklet with has all the timetables of flights and at the back has the seating plans for all the aircraft.

I used to work for EL AL. 46H and 46J are not basinette positions on a 747-400. You need to try for 46DE or 46FG. 46H and 46J are designated as infant seats for when basinette positions are full.

Designated as infant seats, what does that mean? What is the alternative to basinettes?

Unfortunately, it means absolutely no difference to a regular Economy seats. It is simply where reservations agents and check-in staff are told to put infants. If you cannot get a basinette position, try and get 35A or 35K. There is a door at row 34 without seats A and K, so you can stretch out a little with the infant on your lap. As mentioned above by "jonnye", basinettes are located in the centre sections of rows 25, 36 and 46. Word of warning though, 25FG on some aircraft has no holes in the wall to put on the actual basinettes.
