Not pricing


Either it's a matter of time, or they might be waiting for clarity on the timing of the visa situation, imho

In any case, that level of capacity makes no sense

Was first trying to price a flight beyond DXB. When that didn't price, I tried only DXB.

That level of capacity could make sense regardless of Visa situation for connections to Asia, Australia, and maybe even Africa.

They are competing against TK. And that too has a political twist to it.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

Seychelles is open. How about MLE? That's a popular destination (I once had my TK flight from IST delayed waiting for a connection for MLE that had a large % of the IST-TLV flight.

That's it. EK flights are in the ben Gurion schedule from December 3rd. Daily flight departing tlv at 18:25




Any link to the old IAA site.
The new one errors out no matter what I search for.

Emirates registering to open a TLV office as a foreign corporation, rather than being represented by an aviation services company (like most foreign airlines flying to TLV), which seems to indicate their ambitions in the market (dethrone TK) and subjects them to Israeli laws.
