I saw an old post from 2016 with regard to bid2fly but there is nothing too much informative there.

Thanks

I had "won" bid2fly to Athens. Rather understandably, they sell the fares on light-demand flights. These, of course, have a chance of being cancelled by the airline. In my case it happened 23 days before the flight, when "Tibi law" is inapplicable.

What's frustraiting though is when trying to find a solution with an ElAl representative for a refund / alternative flight, ElAl refused to be find an alternative for the cancelled flight on the same date, "because it was a bid2fly fare". They wanted to move me to another date of their choice. So in this way bid2fly did limit my options.

Thanks eugnk, typical EL AL customer service indeed.
