Just saw on United.com BE fares from EWR to TLV.
The race to the bottom.

I only wish they knew that I practically stopped selling DL to TLV since this was introduced.... I'm shocked that DL didn't pull back. Maybe they weren't feeling the impact yet because exTLV isn't basic yet.

Only one-ways have BE fares?

I hope ElAl realizes that this is their chance at a competitive advantage and to not introduce BE fares.

website issue? in GDS this fare shows as standard economy, and online when checking the fare rules it allows changes
the other UA basic fares all end in "-LGT", and even after selecting this flight, there is no "basic" banner ontop
