If apple charged more for products in stores in expensive zip codes would that be fine?
Yep. Just like if Home Depot charged more for 2x4s in different zip codes....oh, they do that. Or Starbucks charged more for a latte in different zip codes...oh, they do that too. Or if TGI Fridays charged more for a burger in different zip codes....Or even better if you gave someone a more expensive price if they were below a certain age (that's what senior discounts are). Do we really need to go on and on about the fundamentally basic microeconomics concept of price discrimination, please tell me you were being sarcastic?

Because Americans can afford more expensive tickets

The obvious solution (based on your other thread) is, when you need to fly more then once, book one ticket originating here and returning at the end of the 2nd trip, and another originating in TLV and returning for your 2nd trip.
Or: Start with a 1 way NYC - TLV.  Then buy round trips TLV -NYC-TLV.  With a 1 month (?)stay in NY each time.

Americans will fly even at the prices they ask for, while to convince the Israeli to fly they need to charge significantly less.

If you’re thinking of that already, why are transatlantic one way flights sometimes more then a round trip??
Or triple

The obvious solution is to book by a TA who can get a waiver for min stay

(And what your are suggesting is called "back to back" ticketing)

Why is it legal for airlines to increase the price for flights that are round-trip in the same week.

The same flights when staying a weekend are often up to half price.

Thoughts?
They also increase 50/21/14/7/3 days before the flight
