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.

TLV - South Pacific

AA - 60/90
UA - 80/120

Once again, since Israel is considered part of the Indian sub-continent, it has great values to the Far East.

Anything else down there to see besides Bora Bora?

You mean US 80/120
UA is 90/135

Unsure if this is a chidush or not, but when checking TLV - NYC on Flying Blue for biz class, some of the routings didn't charge me fuel surcharges.

For example, this.
tlv - fco - nyc on 11/9, and nyc - ams - tlv on 12/4.
100k + $173

I was surprised to find this b/c from e/t I had read, they charge award fees on e/t besides DL metal.

Thoughts?

DL and AZ flights should have little/no YQ.

Good to know about Alitalia, but what about the AMS routing. They didn't charge on that either.

Didn't see it, but I'm assuming that the TATL was on DL?

If the long flight is a Delta, for exaple AF TLV-CDG, DL CDG-JFK, the surcharge would be almost nothing.

Another airline which has very little surcharges is SU

I see DL to CDG and then AF to TLV, total fees are only $63. They bump up the fees when you fly AF over the Atlantic

Correct, I don't think you pay YQ for AF/KL EU flights and TLV is EU for FB.

You're right.

TLV-CDG is $19.40 now.
