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.

FYI, it appears that BA stopped charging YQ on TLV-MAD.
The first screen shows a higher amount, likley including YQ, but when you click through to the booking screen, it disappears.

Just saw that off peak ATH-PHL on US is 20k AA miles + 70$. A one way flight TLV-ATH can be around $130. So for 20k AA miles + $200 you have TLV-(USA). You save 22,500 miles for $200.

IMO, I would do it.

Where do you find $70 flight to ATH?

By the way, anyone here familiar with Turkish Airlines program? With the recent changes, it got more attractive, especially with now allowing one-way awards at half price.

You have that backwards.. TLV-ATH is $130. Its $70 in taxes for ATH-PHL on US Air.

My bad, you're correct. (I've never know you to be incorrect).

Which airline do you find charges that one way?

FYI, this off-peak AA was even better when they had the free OW at the landing airport.
You could do Europe - NYC (or similar) - HNL or anything similar to that for 20k.

Exciting news.
Meridiana is joining the Avios scheme, and they have flights from TLV-MXP.
The flights should be 20k RT + YQ. I haven't been able to check the YQ yet, but if it's reasonable, it'll be a good deals.

They also have seasonal flights to a few other cities in Italy.

Currently, it's only bookable over the phone.

Sure, that's discussed here.
Even better, add on a flight to anywhere else in the region (DPS or Manila for example), and the price won't increase.
