Yes I saw that too but to get to BKK or CMB from TLV is the issue especially if you want to use SA or OW awards.


Get there on LY in J using AA. I'm sure Drago can confirm but it's already Shabbat in Israel

If Srilankan Airlines joins OW in 2013 as expected (and before my trip) then that would be great as I would even save on those $300... but still that is an 11 hours flight to BKK and then a 6 hours flight back to MLE... for a 4 days trip I don't think I can do that... The IST option is exactly 11 hours including connection (Agreed that it's not J but...)

But I mean, if there is no availability on SA, what other choice do I have...

OK! Just confirmed my 5 nights at Halaveli for May 8-13! Total cost $3,846 including tax and transfer for both of us for 5 nights! I added a night since Turkish only flies 3-4 times a week from TLV. Total cost per night = $569 without transfer / $770 with. 

For the flights, I followed my original plan which is TLV-IST-MLE (11 hrs total flights & connection) for 70k UA miles + $60 each in I roundtrip.

The whole thing hurts, but like many have said: trip-of-a-lifetime...
