LY-AS

Since El Al lost its FFP partnership with American Airlines in 2014, it has remained without a US partner. This has become an issue, especially as El Al has now embarked on a huge expansion of its flights to the US, launching several new destinations between Boston and Las Vegas. As such, the announced partnership with Alaska Airlines as of July 01 – so far though only announced by Alaska’s Mileage Plan – seems logical, although the carrier might be too small to offer decent network expansion possibilities at all of El Al’s gateways.
