The offer: How it worked out: I did not call the number I was supposed to because it is in Israel and it is late Friday afternoon here -- meaning that the country is closed. Instead, I called Customer Service. They had never heard of this offer but once I gave them the promotion reference code (97020524) they were able to look it up. I got an M fare TLV-LAS (connecting in JFK), LAS-ATL (with a four day layover) and ATL-TLV (non-stop with lie back seats) for $2478.02, all in. That, at least, was the price they quoted me. The receipt came in at $2453.02. The rep told me that the Q fare upgrades were available but I wouldn't get confirmation of this for 24 hours. I didn't agree to that as I was afraid that they would disappear. She then made a telephone call to someone else and it was arranged for me to get the confirmation while I was on the phone. I had expected this to cost me 37,500 SkyMiles. It is usually 25,000 each way for a Trans-Atlantic stop without a layover, but with the half-price offer it should have come to 12,500 SkyMiles TLV-LAS and 12,500 ATL-TLV. I figured I would get hit another 12,500 for the LAS-ATL segment, but I didn't. I was only debited the 25,000. Of course, I will be visiting both LAS and ATL in August and for most people that means I should be entitled to hardship pay, but for someone who lives in Israel it is almost like an Artic vacation.
