When will the 772s be refurbished ?
LY said they will receive the same interior as the 787s.

Will they keep the F class?

I think the main issue is how LY can deal with the abscence of the B772. They'll either have to change timetables making the B767 fly to LHR for a while whils the B772 get refurbished or they'll have to lease aircraft.

I was told by an LY employee that the 772's will not be modified to match the 789 interiors.
There will be 2 different long haul products.

On the 772, El Al flies a 772 BOS-TLV, SeatGuru gives the first row as first class, El AL will give the first class seat for $650 when one purchases a business class ticket.

Does anyone know if I can use frequent flyer points for this 'upgrade'? I would have to transfer points from Amex to El Al...

Would a good strategy be to not pick a seat, and hope you end up there when all other seats are gone?

is it going to be the sane business class service ?
if so then itís not worth it - itís basically the same exact seat but a bit wider
I would definitely not spend the money or the points on it

Feel free to start a new thread next time you have a question that has nothing to do with the subject of the thread.

Seriously, not having a go, but we get so little traffic here, new threads are more than welcome
