Tlv - Maldives
US Airway - 50/75/100
UA - 40/70/90
AA- 35/50/70

TLV - Thailand
AA - 45/60/90
UA - 75/100/160
US Airway - 50/75/100

TLV to SEZ (Seychelles)
UA - 70k
US - 70k
Avianca - 45k

From Australia to TLV
AA is 30k-45k
UA is 45k 60k

MIA to TLV on BA, and found availability on Air Berlin for 35k ow + $22.

TLV - South Pacific
AA - 60/90
UA - 80/120

TLV - MNL
UA - 75/100/
US - 50/75/100
AA - 45/60/90

TLV - India
AA - 35/50/70
UA - 40/70/100


Air Berlin doesn't charge YQ when you use BA miles, you can get some good values when touring Europe.

For example, TLV - TXL is 20k + $80 in coach. From there, you can access multiple cities throughout Europe for 9k + regular fees and taxes, but no YQs.

Or do an open jaw, and use a different One World carrier to return to TLV, although some YQs may be needed.

Ticketing offices, and perhaps also by phone.

Only flights with EK numbers can be bought on EK.com

And AA will know that and allow the ticket to be processed?

No, I was only saying it to prove there is such a thing as Middle East-Israel published fare.

It doesnt make a difference to AA unless RJ publishes a fare, and I assume they do.

Here's a nice one for us Israeli's.

TLV - Middle East (such as Dubai)
UA - 30/45/60
LifeMiles - 30/55/75
US - 30/35/45

I'm not including AA since you'd have to use an Explorer award, since a regular award wouldn't be a valid routing to most Arab countries due to a lack of a published routing.
Let me correct myself. You could probably do an Explorer award. If you route TLV - AMM - DXB then it would be 1.3k miles each way, for a total of 2.6. That would cost 35/70 using Explorer pricing.

Good point.
RJ and Etihad wouldn't work?

What are you trying to ticket?

Etihad is not OW.
It doesn't work with their affiliate airlines according to the quote?

Even if it slips by the review desk (and every OW ticket is manually reviewed) and is ticketed I highly suggest not making any changes or even calling up about it.
If any agent notices the Etihad flight they will send it to the OW desk to be voided.
