After the 50% back it's only 50k points JFK-LON in F.
Not bad at all if you ask me.
50% back? This can't be booked via amex
PUTPAC = PITA

You are referring to the London flight.
That can't be possible
And you are referring to the Israel flight.

I saw the empty leg on sale via a broker for 50k. So they are getting quite a good deal on it

Just clicked the link and obviously I'm not the right demographic...lol...but if you are that type to plunk down 7.5k they have made it look appealing, way less hassle, bring 5 bags pp, and most importantly for high earners the flight times are absolutely perfect to not miss work, you're back in time to work Wednesday after Chag.  That's worth a lot to high earners.

They saw a cheap empty leg that they figured they'd be pretty safe coming close to our breaking even on, if not making an outright profit, and it would be great precursor press for the pesach flights when they have precedent of having done this successfully a month ago, with people raving about the experience.
Who do you think you are fooling? You think you are going to pull a quick one on your Creator? Good luck with that.
