for those interested ba surcharges ow to london have dropped back down to 64 [from the 229 its been the last few weeks].  btw when you use the ba chase card you get the whole 100 back, leaving you with 36 credit.

What about business class?
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

Charge using Avios one-way TLV-LHR is USD 59 in Y and USD 67 in C.
LHR-TLV is much more expensive (esp in C) due to UK taxes.

Note that taxes quoted in first screen are unreliable, you need to click through to booking screen to see 'real' taxes.
