If someone is 10+ or 60+ years in the game, it doesn't make a difference anymore, as so many things change so often.

 true but the basics are still the same, as is the thought process

Try using a more beginner friendly flight like Aeroplan or Continental.

It ain't pretty, but it is 75K miles RT.
CO allows free changes, so you can book something like this and change to better options as they open up and just use this as a last resort.

06/27 AC832 YUL-BRU, 7:45pm-8:35am +1
06/28 SN3291 BRU-TLV, 7:00pm-12:20am +1
or
06/27 UA7441 ORD-YUL, 10:40am-1:43pm.
06/27 AC874 YUL-FRA, 5:30pm-6:30am +1
06/28 LH100 FRA-MUC, 7:40am-8:35am

Since when does CO allow free changes to date/routing for non-plat?

Gotta be a couple years already!

6/28 LX256 ZRH-TLV 22:45-3:30+1 day

   
      
The timing of LX256 is torture.  Could never quite get on schedule after arriving a 3:30am.  But ZRH does beat out BRU.
Find anything better on the return?

Truth be told you could do better than all of these if you are willing to take a stopover in a European city.
