Nice new route! TAP often has very good economy and business class fares, which can work one way too. They also offer a free stopover in Lisbon option.

Lisbon – Tel Aviv eff 31MAR19 1 daily A321 (Previously served from October 1993 to April 1997)
TP1603 LIS1420 – 2130TLV 321 D
TP1604 TLV0505 – 0900LIS 321 D

TAP J class  JFK-TLV $1465, TLV-JFK $1315. Good option, but a pretty poor product considering the long LIS-TLV flight

Refundable with a $150 charge is great.


Real J?

A330. Decent lounge nothing special. Also the lounge is only in the Schengen area so you need to leave yourself time for customs after.

True. IINM Israel and Morocco don’t have any official diplomatic relations.
