  • Complimentary membership in the King David Club, including preferential check-in at the King David Club counters and entry to EL AL's Lounges

  • An additional 25% on all points accumulated on EL AL flights (the additional points are also valid for award tickets and upgrades and are not counted for priority lists and towards renewing your Gold Tier status or receiving Platinum Tier status or eligibility for reduced-price last-minute upgrades).

  • Guaranteed seating in Economy Class up to 48 hours before a flight for tickets in Y Class (except during Holiday periods; on code-share flights; on special group flights; and under unusual circumstances that are not under EL AL's control).

  • As a preferred customer, you now enjoy an exclusive benefit that enables you to utilize your award ticket in a Class that is not subject to availability of allocated award seats, for one and a half times the number of points.
    This benefit allows you to utilize your award  ticket in Economy Class even when the quota of allocated award seats has been filled. The benefit is conditional on availability in H class.
    The required number of points for utilizing these awards can be supplemented with money; it is also possible to transfer these awards to family members or anyone else. Following is a table of points required for various destinations.

  • Enjoy an additional exceptional benefit – an assured-in-advance upgrade to Business Class, including for tickets purchased in Economy Class, at a much lower fare than in the past. It is now possible to upgrade a ticket purchased in B class (for North America) or Q class (for other destinations) , rather than in M or S class respectively, for double the number of points, and thus assure your seat on the flight in advance, saving you precious waiting time
    The following table indicates the number of points required for upgrading to various destinations. Following is a table of points required for various destinations.
