No chance UA will add TLV-ORD in September.

if I'm reading it right; IAD-TLV service resumes in October,
EWR-TLV increase is effective in August

I'm no expert (al all)-- But one person states that by October United will have as much or more service to Israel than before the pandemic began?!

Wierdest time to announce a new route. Only logic I can think of, is to put salt on LY's wounds. For crying out loud, the borders are still closed. EWR flights are barely half full. And a new route now?!
I guess it was an opportunity to beat El Al to it.

Not weird at all. LY is going to have to decide which routes to cut in the coming days.
UA just added ORD onto that list.

The question is why now? If they felt the route is profitable, they could’ve beat LY to it a year ago. Why wait till LY launches the route, and then try to force them out? Did LY sales help them decide it’s profitable? Or is it because AA delayed DFW launch?

Doubt it has anything to do with that. United has been making astronomical amounts of $ on ewr-tlv and tlv is a well positioned cargo hub. There's never been a better time to test a new route than now.

It's everything combined.
AA delay, LY delay, cargo rates, etc.
