Looking to book flights foe pesach time from tlv, if anyone has any really good route ideas/chaps to make the flights cheaper please do share. I used ita for top 150 Europe airports etc. but didn't find any really good options
To follow up, there are currently European airlines flying with a stop over in which the to and from israel legs are operated by elal. These tickets will only show up booked through the European airlines and not on Elal's website. Going for almost half as much as the rt of the current direct elal flights. Hope this info helps someone here

@Mareh Makom , I think you indeed need to provide a Mareh Makom. Please let us know were you are seeing these (I am not seeing this anywhere).

I’ve found Emirates from ATH to EWR to be a great option in recent weeks.
Also, found some DL/LY combinations through Europe. Not available on either airline’s website, but coming up on Expedia.

How long are the stopovers on the return?

Depends on the day, but definitely not overnight.

Do we have a data point on someone ACTUALLY flying on a non israeli airline recently?

Does UA still proactively call to rebook a canceled flight?

Not yet. But I did get several passengers on Emirates to ATH and one of the Israeli airlines from there.

Sure. Air France.
You personally know someone who flew air france from tlv after the war? And even if so, do the European airlines have a higher cancellation rate than the israeli ones?
