Very challenging
Motsae Sukkos is always sold out.
Combined with the war and most foreign airlines cancelling their operations.

LY is completely sold out. Turkish as well

There are a few Emirates / FlyDubai tonight. I'd try my luck there.

I know people taking LY to European cities like ATH and then taking a separate flight from there

I just booked Pegasus to SAW for a couple of people, there are at least 4 flights with seats today and tomorrow. From IST there are numerous continuing options of course. Let's hope they actually fly.
