Cheapest in Y is probably AF, which is 50k RT.

Even if you value MR/TYP at 1.3, you're looking at $650 plus about $200 in YQ (aside for DL metal, but good luck finding availability).

Thank you. I'm thinking along the same exact lines. If Flying Blue had the promotional 25k RT, then points would trump revenue, but I am not holding my breath for FB.

Why is it so hard to find the delta non-stop on flying blue

Because Delta stopped releasing any low level awards on this route.

In any case you should be searching on Delta.com, search for one-ways and look for the nonstop flights that price at 40k (or at least it used to be). I haven't seen any in months.

I am looking for LH award availability for BOS-TLV (via FRA). I don't see any LH availability on UA or Aeroplan sites. Is that because there is no availability or need to look elsewhere, or need to PUTPAC?

Thanks. If it's available on M&M, then presumably AC will be able to see and I can PUTPAC AC? (Or, maybe I should try to acquire some M&M?)

No M&M shows more availability then partners

Ok. thanks.  I just enrolled in M&M and got temporary ID # and it says I can't search (or do much of anything) until they send me my permanent ID#. Is that for real?

Yes sir.
They only send the permanent ID once you earn miles.

I'm trying to find a flight on August 21st/August 20th evening TLV - NYC. I checked United 85K+$41 economy. Do you think I can find a better deal elsewhere?
I have UR and MR points.
There is also Ukrainian flight for $560. Can you suggest other options to hunt for better deal?

Thank you

That united option is terrible, something is bound to open up.

Are you saying that united may add availability? Does it ever happen?

I have another option with BA: 32500 Avios + $ 223
There is only one seat available, I'm worried ir would slip away after transfer. Is that a good option anyway?
