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.

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.

What are taxes on the return?
Life isn't about checking the boxes. Nobody cares.

It seems that TLV-MIA can not be searched or booked online.

It worked when I checked.
Great find, thank you Reuben!

And I thought Aer Lingus was the only viable transatlantic option with BA...
Let's hope this one is also here to stay.

Find it working from any other cities besides MIA?

From your little post came the whole airline/travel blogosphere announcing this as the latest breakthrough  :D

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?

And US considers us part of Australia.
