direct flightb to israel
« on: August 24, 2010, 10:15:22 PM »
Is there anybody out here, who has gone through (at least most of) mileage programs, that are able to get you a direct flight for NYC-TLV? I'm trying to figure out what is the lowest mileage i need to get such a ticket.

if you have star alliance points or withany of their carriers you might get lucky on getting a point ticket.

lot airlines is good with miles. i redeemed a ticket on lot business class for 120k aeroplan points economy was 75k .

i dont know what points you have but if they belong to a member of star alliance u might be in luck .

LOT might be good with availability, but their business class can't compare to fellow Star members like Swiss or Lufthansa via Europe or Continental or USAir direct from the US.

To answer your question, if Continental has EWR-TLV availability then ANA will be very good.  60K in coach and 90K in business with no fuel surcharge.

 True but since I havent flown LO yet I can only think its still better then being in Coach for some , only question is it worth the extra 40-50k in miles? It might be if the seats arent any worse then COs 767s BF seats

from what i understand and the way the seats look like in the pics the lot business class looks exactly like elal business class seats .
nothing to extravegant. but i may aswell use the points . 120k on lot vs 250k on air canada direct.

You can check for availability on Continental.com look for saverpass level, if you find availability then it can also be booked via ANA miles.
Just remember that SPG to ANA transfers can take a few days so availability can change from when you found it until your points are available in ANA.

1, if i can only find easypass on continental.com what would that mean in terms of ana/other mileage programs partnered with continental?
2, Don't have SPG
