Am I the only one who finds these AZ threads very very amusing to read?
I do not think AZ will be around by Christmas time. Having said that, the fare seems very cheap, esp. for J-class and I'd go along and risk my money on that as long as I'm covered with a very good travel insurance. I fully trust AXA for that.

Quoting CO7e7 (Reply 6): According to their customer service rep, the website is being "updated" and that i should try again in 24 hours!
While on the phone, did they offer you the same fare over the phone?
By the way, I have a ticket from AZ for Sept. and I have purchased it using United Mileage Visa card. Now Visa people tell me that if AZ go bankrupt, there is nothing they will do for me. So I am going to try to get some extra travel insurance just in case.
More bad news; after talking to a travel insurance company, I was told that AZ is on a very short list of carriers they will not do insurance policies for.

Had to have been a typo, but sometimes, typos are honored. As long as you pay with a credit card, you are 100% safe as far as you financial investment goes. You get all of your money back if AZ goes pancho supra. But if you have your heart set on travel, I suspect travel insurance would have only covered the cost of the ticket, which is grossly underpriced.
(I looked; I haven't been to TLV in ages, and at a price like that, greedy me would have booked). Christmas in Tel Aviv is not to be missed!
