Where to credit Miles for ELAL Metal

LAX TLV LAX Class U and N, is QF the best option to credit points to for a party of five? Not an LY frequent flier.

According to wheretocredit.com it looks like the only option for N class is QF or an Argentina carrier for 25% RDM.

At least for U the Argentinian carrier gives 100%.

EL AL is really sad when it comes to partners...

There is NOT much one can do with Aerolineas Argentinas miles program for US based unless your traveling to South America, at-least with Qantas it can transfer amongst family members and have a better value for US based.

Yeah I have an LY fare booked in Y and there's nothing worthwhile I can do with it (US-based). Pretty frustrating.

Wondering if anyone has experience with R/Romeo J-cabin fare. Have a round trip and don’t see it listed on the QF chart, but also Matmid is pretty useless for me. I assume it’s exlcuded but perhaps QF hasn’t updated.

Thanks

Why do you think so? AR is a member of Skyteam, so you can redeem with all Skyteam airlines, including DL.

Does anyone know how many miles I will earn in either QF/AR in business class R/T from NYC to TLV?

This information is inaccurate. One can only accrue Aerolíneas Plus miles on LY on codeshare flights between TLV and MAD marketed with the AR code.

How does one add QF number to an LY flight to earn QF points? called LY to add QF# they said it is not possible.

I’m curious to the above as well as I study whenever Qantas or Alaskan is more beneficial
