They're also throwing in the A340 on some days.
Noticed that too. But only once in a while

But unfortunately not on the forth (a321). One of the best connection options to the US for a full J product with decent award availability

As seen on Kayak right now... Is AA adding a 5th freedom flight to TLV?  ;)
Seems like it's supposed to be Wizz Air. Not sure what the mistake is. Who ever heard of Air Bagan anyway...?

Nice to see YYZ finally on the horizon for a Dreamliner. I thought they were waiting for 787-8 deliveries. Perhaps maybe that's why they're reducing to 3x weekly.
But I wouldn't rely on any of this as accurate, until it's within 5-6 months of the flight. As we've seen in the past year, they keep changing their plans on which aircraft should serve which route.

We are considering paphos but have read such horror stories of ryan air.  Are flights into larnaca better?  Which airline is recommended?  Any other close places as a suggestion for a quick getaway over the next few weeks.  Everything seems so expensive but this is the time we have.

Why does UA have a 3rd flight EWR-TLV on Yom Kippur 09/19 at 5:05am and returning TLV-EWR motzei Yom Kippur?
they have it every year, probably because of the demand from TLV, but who is flying on the outbound?
Every year. TLV is closed Yom Kippur meaning the day before United can't fly there, so in order to maintain the 2 daily flights out of TLV YK morning they fly from NY which arrives Motzai YK in TLV
