As to the fee waivers for the first year: We strongly believe in the product. it reallys pays, saves a lot money to its holders and expose them to so many benfits that the monthly fee becomes so marginal and insignificant.

BTW, most CC holders in Israel are paying a monthly fee of NIS12 as it is (soon will grow to NIS14), so the difference becomes even more insignificant especially if you evaluate the benefits you get as a FLY CARD holder.
If you believe in it so strongly, why are you not willing to waive the fee to show the customer how great it is? You know, the way every other airline works around the world and even how major store cards work in Israel (think Shufersal, Rami Levi, etc.).
