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

TLV - India

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.

You're right.

TLV-CDG is $19.40 now.
When I just chk TLV - CDG and back, it gives me fees of around $25 to CDG, and $66 to go back to TLV. Problem is, it's hard to find the route using only 15k miles each way for direct. The 15k options are for  stopovers.
For example, first to Bucharest and then to TLV. The good thing is that this route only has $25 and $43 or surcharges.
So, 30k + $68. Not the best value to go to Paris, but an option, particularly when there is a transfer bonus from MR.
I'm seeing around

Yeah, but not for DDF elites. HUCA until someone waives the restriction for you.

Seeing lots of phantom availability on the AF website.

It never pays to go to Paris. Much better to go to Dubai. VD"L.

Maybe this one was obvious, but I was surprised.
I searched MIA to TLV on BA, and found availability on Air Berlin for 35k ow + $22.

I thought it was a good deal, particularly with the MR transfer bonus and the typical high fees BA charges.

how do i get air berlin to show up on BA.COM?

i am trying from NYC-TLV
