Call AMEX and ask them.  I think it may not apply to ALL classes of Biz tickets -- i.e. if that $3500 ticket is a promotional/discounted Biz ticket, it probably will not apply.  But in either case, you have to book the ticket through AMEX -- or at least that's how it used to work.

Must purchase a full-fare, unrestricted business or first ticket.

At $3500 to TLV, I'd highly doubt this qualifies.
