Happened upon this pricing glitch.
For most Sundays throughout the booking calendar, when booking BOS-LAX, if a connection via MCO is listed, it will frequently be the lowest priced option, e.g., 9,500 or 10,200 points.
But when you click through a few screens, the price drops to roughly half the price, like 4,500 or 5,500 points.
This lower price remains in place through the confirmation of booking.
I have only checked Sundays and only BOS-LAX.
Didn't seem to work when I tried other connecting cities (e.g., MIA, JFK).

I have many questions.
My bad.  I entered TOR but meant YYZ, as in where I had my siyuum.

With immeasurable gratitude to HKB"H for keeping me healthy and providing me the means to undertake twice-monthly transcontinental flights during the pandemic to be with my wife and children, as well as some amazing travel to Italy, Cairo, and Israel before Corona, here's my summary for 2020:
1. Almost 120,000 miles (Ad meah v'esrim  ;) ).
2. Twenty transcontinental roundtrips.
 --Most eastbound flights were redeye, mostly ghetto lie-flat in B6
 --Several connecting flights, ~April-July, when the airlines cut way back on flights and made schedules difficult
3. LY J TLV-YYZ in January, culminating in making my first siyuum (thanks to my chevruta @Yehudaa )
4. I'm now Platinum Medallion on DL and expect to keep it through 2021 (status match challenge from Mosaic, thanks @Dan )
 --These days, seems more likely than not to be upgraded to First or Delta One
5. Here are the segments:
VCE-IST-CAI
CAI-AMM-TLV
TLV-TOR
TOR-BOS
BOS-LAX
LAX-BOS

I checked TLV-NYC random January 12 and it appeared.  Also various other dates random spot checked.
Thanks. I booked for return after Pesach and it was 47k in J. (Still a good deal, of course.)

There seems to be an award promo going on for redemptions on Turkish metal.

Example: 32.9K in business TLV-JFK

I'm not seeing this...any example dates?

LINK has a 12:35 minyan and at that time of day you're not too far from the airport (depending which way you're going)
Thanks very much.

Sad that We need a new technology to verify wearing a mask.

I will be flying BOS-EWR-TLV on a “mixed” United Award ticket that is Y for BOS-EWR and J for EWR-TLV.   Will I get United Club access in Boston, or only in Newark?
This website would seem to indicate that I (actually my DD is flying) would get access in BOS, even though the BOS-EWR leg is in Y.

I wonder if @zow is coming back right away but as with all domestic connections, on the way back you need to pick up luggage and then send it on its way after you go through customs.
Actually, it’s DD, not, me who is flying.  And she is going one-way (new Olah). Sending her off in style. :)
