Should I Or Shouldn't I?

I'm still debating how to order my flight to see my parents. I just checked out the El Al site, and I could do it that way, though in principle I like f2f even if it's by phone. I also like to give humans business and don't like it when the big companies pocket what could be parnasa for real people.

I think I'll call a new agent and see what can be done. It seems like I'll never have enough points to get anything worth while from El Al. If I had wanted to travel sooner, I could get a good deal, but I don't know if there will be similar things next month for July. The timing for this visit depends on my sister and the fact that I must go to the pool here this summer. We only have a three month season. The pool closes for 10 days in the middle for the nine days. So it makes sense to be in New York during that time, plus a couple of days at the beginning and end, equaling about two weeks. My sister says that those dates are fine with her.

So complicated...

For some reason, I feel like the more people involved with a given situation, the greater the risk of complication, and the greater the difficulties when attempting to remedy any issues that arise. I don't like middlemen.

I've had trouble with the old agent, but I really like to give people parnasa. My daughter works in a travel business in NY. She's not an agent. No, I wasn't offered any special rates.
