(no LOT polish..).


FYI I just flew TLV>JFK on LOT. While it wasn't 100% like a regular airline, it was definitely on par with low cost domestic carriers.

I had a 3 seat bench all to myself (Aug 1), between TLV and WAR. Considering its a 6:30Am departure and I was up all night that really made a difference. Show me 1 seat empty on direct flights to TLV any time, never mind August.

WAR is a new and small airport, so it's a nice stopover. (granted if you're there for more than a few hours the city isn't much)

Anyone ever fly Kuwait Air JFK-LON???

there's a lot of talk about cheap fares there. And they say all staff is american.

One way/Round trip: RT
Non-stop/Maximum stops/Any: Non Stop
From: All airports from which you can depart: YYZ
To: All airports which you can arrive at: MSP
Departure dates: Oct 9-11
Return airports: YYZ
Return dates: Oct 23 or 24
Class: Coach

Alliance/Airline: Any

The best I found was from $585 to $650,  I was wondering if anyone has some idea (or trick) for cheaper? I would take 1 stop if it would be much cheaper.

Thanks, SuperFlyer.  :)

Do you mean cheaper than 2 one-way tix or cheaper than one? I am checking r/t. So far it seems to cost more, like 1385. I found on aa.com 975 1 way, via IST. When should I be checking for the r/t, which return date? Is the cheapest likely to be a month, more, less? What day of week is usually cheapest? For example I can look at return on Sat, or xmas.

Thank you!

I'd still avoid the place at this point.
