Anyone Hear of FindAir?

Came across this article yesterday in Globes, Israeli business paper: FindAir enters the online flight fare comparison fray

I was intrigued so I checked it out. Searched random dates for premium economy and indeed found a better deal than other places had been showing. Went to book and it took me to EL AL's website where I discovered that one leg was operated by a 777 which doesn't even have premium economy and both legs were shown as "Economy." Going back to FindAir, I do see that both flights are listed as "PremiumEconomyClass."

Searching exact same dates in Y showed cheaper options, so it's clearly filtering somehow. When I isolated only EL AL, it showed a cheaper option for Y versus Y+, but that involved a connection. Choosing only direct showed the exact same flight option, and again listed as Premium Economy.

Reminded me of this: https://www.godsavethepoints.com/201...antic-flights/

Never heard of them. Looked for quotes in Premium Economy and it was throwing up airlines I know that do not have that cabin. I would be wary.
