    From Flyertalk:

    JFK-TLV and BOS-TLV, many dates available.

    ~$350-400 per ticket

    Books into AA, LX, and LY in various combinations.

    Worked at cheaptkts, Orbitz, trouble elsewhere.

    Good luck!

    Credit where credit is due.

    If my wife can find some vacation time, we are jumping on it... of course if it's not dead by the time she gets back to me...

    Are these cancellable within 24 hours of booking?

    EDIT: Booked ORD-LHR-TLV for $370!

    I've always wondered this... what OTAs have 24 hour cancellation policies like most airlines?

    I booked this on Expedia. Question - can I get AA points for this?

    You will get RDM's for the AA operated segments that are LY flt #s. If you have LX operated flights from EU -> TLV, those segments will only earn on LY.

    Follow up:

    For those that purchased this fare, El Al is allowing this. :cool: They made the announcement on Thursday afternoon NY time.

    Yeah!!! I'm excited. I was wondering from their announcement that they'd let travelers change to non-stops for $75, whether that would have to be the same day as the travel was already booked for. For example, I'm supposed to leave thursday morning 2/16 at 9am. I am hoping they'd let me switch to the non-stop that leaves friday morning at 1 am.

    Hmmm. 100% AA miles for flying EL AL changes this for me. I'll have to sleep on this, but just in case, don't tell my wife as I wouldn't mind spending the day in Zurich. Oh decisions decisions. :D
