Seems like delta is cancelling through April 30.
My friend had booking on DL flight in April with LY codeshare, LY automatically rebooked onto their own metal

I booked my daughter for an April flight with Delta miles, they will only rebook on another miles flight and don't have any nonstop options with El Al, only stopovers. My daughter isn't comfortable doing a stopover herself, if anyone can offer advice here I'd appreciate it!

why doesn't United operate triangle flights to TLV via AMM & vice versa,

they already fly there & the flight attendants can overnight in AMM

its only a 20 min flight from TLV

Or ATH, which passengers would probably feel safer landing in?
My guess would be that the turnaround for long haul international flights is long and crew would time out.

I know.
Just pointing out that I don't think that anyone would share publicly any trick they had unless they had already used it for every friend and relation they had bec once it's public the cheaper tickets would be bought up in an instant.
