Anybody know why on Yom Kippur morning 10/12/16 UA has a flight EWR-TLV at 4:55am (UA10)?

The following day would make sense, but huh?

Does it have a lot of J availability??? :)

Possible that they need the plane in TLV for after the fast.

Interesting.

They have a UA12 at 12:20am TLV-EWR that night.

I think they had this last year and there was tons of J opened last minute.

Needs to be timed not to arrive into TLV on YK.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

USM-BKK-CDG-FRA-JFK

All Saver Y and all connections within 24 hours. How come this is pricing as 85k and not as 40k?

Online.

But if ajk is right (praying that he was joking but don't think he is ️) then 85k would indeed be South Asia-Europe + Europe-US in Y Saver.

Online.

There's about a .000000000001% chance UA.bomb will price it properly, search each leg separately and you can piece it together on the phone as 1 award.
