Consider yourself lucky.
Any O/D change should incur a $75 fee.

So what was your original itinerary? TLV to NYC, and then NYC to TLV? And then you added on a return leg from LAX to NYC to TLV?

Yes. Even changing the flight on the same airline incur the fee. As always, with a stupid enough agent the rules can vary.

If I have an award ticket and for some reason downgrade to coach from biz prior to 30 days is there a penalty to reinstate the difference in miles? Right now I have coach booked and want to upgrade but may need to change it back.

I am trying to change the connection city on an intl award ticket with United more than 21 days in advance and keep on getting told that I must pay a 75 dollar change fee. I am assuming that is false?
