Business Special Seat Assignments

Hi all:

My parents contacted Amex for help booking tickets in lieu of using the el al website and Amex relays that El Al insists that they will not assign seats for business special fares until 24 hours before the flight. Is that true, or if we buy business special fares online on the el al website can we select seats now?
Thanks!

This isn't true. Anyway as suggested, book the tickets with Amex, and then go and choose your seats on the El Al website.
