Flight times?

13:30-20:35
07:15-11:10

then 10/27

16:00-23:05

06:05-09:55

That number though of 180,000 seats added on the TLV-LHR route is pretty amazing

From TPG

“While neither airline has alluded to such service modifications, the new London Heathrow/Tel Aviv service could eventually allow Delta to end the airline’s flights to Tel Aviv. Delta operates a single daily non-stop from its New York-JFK hub. Though the airline has previously signaled that the service has been a success, Virgin Atlantic’s new Tel Aviv service could allow Delta to exit the Israeli market and reallocate its equipment to other routes.”


Any thought on this actually happening? Seems very unlikely to me.

Typical TPG drivel.
And DL is adding a 2nd daily TLV flight! Bozos...

That's like saying:

"While neither airline has alluded to such service modifications, the new Frankfurt/Tel Aviv service could eventually allow United to end the airline’s flights to Tel Aviv. United operates two daily non-stop from its New York-EWR hub. Though the airline has previously signaled that the service has been a success, Lufthansa’s new Tel Aviv service could allow United to exit the Israeli market and reallocate its equipment to other routes.”

It's one of the daftest things I've read from TPG and that's saying something.

Intresting though that flight times won’t make a lot of their transatlantic flights from LHR. Unless they’re counting on DL flights.

5 flights a day to NYC
1 to SFO
1 to LAX
1 to BOS

(probably more, but that's all the ones I looked at)
 ... not enough?

LAX, SFO and ATL leave London too early to make the connection.
