If you find availability that's the best option. even in J would be good.

Probably 10k, or look for hidden city.

Eco is the same  (12,500)
Business is the same (25,000)
First book with AA (32,500 vs BA charges 37,500)

However, within 21 days the $75 AA fee applies so you have to make your own calculations
Or use BA with no close in fee

FB availability is much better when using FB miles period. Nothing to do with TLV.
You can say what you think when you think what you say.
