I actually got the impression that Etihad will be (would be a nice use of AA or their miles).  But whoever goes first, I guess that would be the one (although surely the fanfare on the Etihad flight would be "richer."

QR Qsuites via AMM is still a great option for 70K AA from the US

I have no doubt both airlines will launch
Just in terms of process, Israir already reached out to both Israel and UAE for slots, and I havent heard of ethiad asking for slots yet, but I might have missed it.

We're talking about TLV origin here, but indeed it is.

Unlike the direct passenger flight, the cargo service will fly via Liege in Belgium before continuing to Dubai, El Al said, without explaining the roundabout route.

Weird:

If you'd look in the right thread (what does an LY flight have to do with EK?) you'd see that it was mentioned and addressed.

Im guessing the tlv-lgg leg was already booked, and they are repositioning the plane in UAE instead of stopping by tlv
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

The tiny Gulf kingdom of Bahrain indicated Thursday it would open its air space to Israeli planes flying to the UAE, potentially shortening flights to Dubai by several minutes.

In an announcement carried by its state news agency, Bahrain’s Transportation Ministry said it would allow all flights to the UAE to cross its airspace.

*חברת אמירייטס מהאמירויות, קיבלה אישור נתיב סופי לנתב״ג ותתחיל לפעול בארץ בינואר - כך נודע לכתבנו.*

החברה תתחיל את טיסותיה לישראל, באחד בינואר 2021, ותפעיל טיסה יומית במטוס רחב גוף לנתב״ג. במקביל שוקלת החברה גם פעילות של פליי דובאי בחלק מהקווים.

חברת אמירייטס היא אחת משלוש החברות הפועלות באמירויות והרביעית בגודלה בעולם.

החברה נחשבת אחת הטובות ביותר בעשור החולף לפי כל הדירוגים הבינלאומיים ומפעילה טיסות המשך ליותר ממאה שמונים יעדים בעולם.

I guess January is the month! Let's see if Etihad or Israir beat them!
