"In addition, Dutch airline KLM plans to resume its flights between Amsterdam and Tel Aviv starting from April 1 until May 19, 2024, with a daily flight using a Boeing 737-900 aircraft. The flights to Israel will include a layover in Larnaca, where crew members who are unwilling to travel to Israel will be replaced."

BA is doing the same thing.

For that purpose? If they don't want to go then assign them a different flight?

AF uses widebody planes which can fly CDG-TLV-CDG nonstop should there be a flare up vs the 737 that KLM is using AMS-TLV-AMS I don't think can do that

Don't get your logic. If there is a flare up, why would they have to go all the way back to AMS? They can divert then to LCA.

Only to take off again to return them to AMS

I'm anxious to see if UA will fly but I like Dan's approach. He would rather be correct by confirming with UA than first to report.

"The initial Newark-Tel Aviv flights on March 2 and 4 will stop in Munich to ensure all service providers are ready to support non-stop service to and from Newark."

What does this mean?

TLV-EWR on UA is available for under $800 on many days in March when booking through the US site (IL site is $1K+).

Strangely enough, when you pull up a seat chart on these flights, they are basically empty except for Business. Business is over 50% booked. Which makes this even stranger, as they are ticking off good customers.

Could be extra crew is coming in and going back in business.
