Is it likely that the larger US carriers will cancel flights to Israel? United/Delta/American etc?
Or bigger hubs like British Air?

Not unless Israel adds quarantine to those countries.

UNITED ALERT
"This just further shows the lack of balance of power between airlines and consumers in the US. Need to change your flight time by a couple of hours? That’ll probably cost you hundreds of dollars. United needs to change your flight time by 24 hours? Deal with it!"

Well said lucky.
