Since you're already on the website, how much do the flights cost?

Got a few things to iron out - maybe they're just trying to get a foot in the door?
Also, don't Israelis require a visa - haven't seen the official waiver annouced
Indeed there are many dual-citizens but enough to fill a plane?

Everyone is trying to occupy the space for now. Israir, Arkia, LY, Flydubai.. that's a lot of capacity.

You're right, Israelis still need a visa and vice versa but it will change soon. Once it changes plenty of Israelis will rush there since it's one of the last green countries out there open to them

I have to give them credit for properly flagging all the travel requirements during the booking process

Yes, impressive. Hope it's read and not just "click through so I can finish already"

Israel Hayom seems to know that Emirates will start flying its 777 to TLV starting December.

I don't see any details anywhere

Several posts poining to 'official sources', but I haven't seen anything official so far  ;D

Also I'm not an expert but wouldnt be odd to have Emirates on top of Flydubai? Seems like significant excess capacity, especially during pandemic
