Via AUH/DXB? Sure.
Nonstop? Not a chance.

Israir 320 and El Al 737 vs Emirates 380/777 and Etihad 787 is a true David v Goliath fight.

Hasn't it been discussed that an a380 to TLV is highly unlikely? Can TLV airport even handle an a380 (runway length, multiple boarding sleeves)?

(sorry for bouncing an old post - just read now)

I don't think tlv as the capacity to handle the 380 - just from a boarding sleeves perspective.

Still, can't compare 777/787 to 320/737 but TBH I'm not sure ppl care about the hard product that much on a 3h flight.

So even if LY installs ithe sky shield on the 787, it's very possible they will choose the 737 depending on the level of demand

I think you are right

From the E Wing launch, press release:

Innovations in E wing include telescopic glass entryways and bridges to aircraft, including double bridges for wide-bodies aircraft, for more convenient and faster boarding and disembarking from both the front and the back of the plane.

Runway 08/26 can handle the A380 since the upgrade completed in 2014

Double bridges for wide bodies aircraft doesn't mean for 2 story aircraft. The A380 has 2 decks.

Yeah. They could use them in a similar way than in the picture below, if I'm not mistaken?

Is TLV open for tax refunds?
Someone told me you just fill out a letter and they contact you to send refund?

I doubt whether there's even the slightest chance of getting anything back to AMEX. The best you can hope for is Alitalia giving you back MilleMiglia points, just make sure to use those before they expire.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!
