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.
Swiss and BA do offer a lie flat option, IINM Iberia offers once a day as well

SU is angle flat on the wide body ex-TLV IINM (not bad IMHO). Though I don't know if they fly into ORD.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

Fair warning - Any PMs sent in response to forum posts are fair game for ridicule in public.

Should have posted link to original article (though in Hebrew), which also mentions that UX is increasing their TLV schedule to daily flights rather than 5 flights per week.

New option to China

כל פרשה שנאמרה ונשנית, לא נשנית אלא לדבר שנתחדש בה

I didn't point it out in my post, but article adds fare information as well as information about connecting to other Chinese cities for no additional fare.

Do I recall correctly that UA serves Covenant wines ex-TLV?
For all pax, or just J?
And is the drinking age 18y ex-TLV, or does it go by the carrier's home country (US)? Or is it YMMV depending on the FA?
(Will ask DS to provide DP when he returns, IYH).
