Ryanair cancelled all flights until Oct. 27.

Seems as this is not for security but rather a dispute over payment for using T3 instead of T1

Ryanair may actualy be right too.
TLV has dual pricing srtucture - T3 is more expensive and includes more stuff. T1 is cheaper, and is limited in which kind of flights could use it - LLC centric
The IAA has no interest in running two terminals at this point. They arent operating T3 at anywhere close to capacity. They basicaly said that any AL returning to serve TLV must use T3 at T3 prices. In the past, whenever the IAA closed T1 for some reason - construction or the like, ,AFAIK they moved the T1 airlines to T3 at the T1 prices. Whicg is what Ryanair wants now.

WizzAir has a notice on their website that they're charging more for flights to TLV due to having to use T3.

Royal Jordanian flights suddenly have no availability from TLV (at least TLV-ORD) for the summer.  As of yesterday, there were daily flights.  Anyone know what's going on? [Posted in a very old thread that doesn't seem to be coming up.]

AC just cancelled the bulk of the flights in at least April and May.  There are still a few showing but I am not sure if they are in the process of manually wiping them one by one or if they will run a very stripped back schedule.

Now seeing some flights rebooked - switching YYZ to YUL - so either they are doing a big schedule change, or the system is making automatic rebookings that will be cancelled.

Most business travelers I know won't take the UA day flight.
I have a friend who is GS, he's still taking LY ex TLV for the time being
