Ex-TLV Routes and Flights Discussions
« on: July 07, 2013, 03:39:59 PM »
Figured it would be nice to discuss all ex-TLV flights in one thread.
This could include new routes, closed routes, equipment changes on routes, etc.

For example, I had no idea that Korean Air has a direct flight to ICN from TLV a few days every week. Anyone ever take this route?

The only airline flying direct to Asia besides LY.

Never had a clue. Was always hoping to see some competition. Now if only CX will start s/t.

Rereading the post, I see where you made the reference. I guess I hadn't read it closely enough the first time.

Which SkyTeam member is the best to book this with?

I did. Nice flight. Empty in J/F.

Beware the reg KSML is not glatt (oddly the hot portion came from a different caterer and was glatt), although I don't know if they have a SKML.
