Quote
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has ordered the advancement of a plan to build a new international airport on an artificial island off his country’s Mediterranean coast.

According to a statement from the Prime Minister’s Office, the directive was given at a ministerial committee meeting held earlier this week.

The government decided to evacuate Sde Dov Airport and transfer all flights to Ben-Gurion Airport.

Ben-Gurion International Airport is believed to be too small to accommodate the ever-growing number of visitors to Israel expected in the coming years.

“In order to provide for the accelerated growth in the number of tourists arriving in Israel,” the statement said, “Prime Minister Netanyahu directed that a plan be advanced to build an airport on an artificial island adjacent to the coast of the State of Israel.”

"United Airlines just announced plans to begin nonstop service from its Dulles hub in Washington, DC (IAD) to Tel Aviv (TLV), launching May 22, 2019.

The new flight will be operated by a 777-200ER with the following schedule:

    UA72 Washington, DC (IAD) 10:30pm Departure → Tel Aviv (TLV) 4:30pm (+1) Arrival (Wed, Fri, Sun)

    UA73 Tel Aviv (TLV) 12:20am Departure → Washington, DC (IAD) 5:50am Arrival (Tues, Fri, Sun)"

Took 5 days for every saver ticket to be sold.....

They were gone within an hour of my post about the wide open space.
Likely mistake.
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.

New member - apologies if this has been discussed before.

Looking for ORD-TLV flights in business/first with readily available award space (ie, not UA from EWR), and that have lie-flat hard product for entire trip.

As far as I can tell, there are no good options where the second leg (Europe-TLV) is on true wide body with lay flat hard product, except for Turkish. I've looked at Swiss, Austrian, LOT, Luftansa, BA, Air France, and KLM. Am I missing something? What's the best way to solve this?

Thanks in advance.
