and whats with first class
Considering that there are no first class seats on nonstop flights between North America and TLV (except for on El Al which can only be redeemed with El Al points) I didn't include them.

If someone wants to research the rates for the best First class option for flights with a stop feel free to post the results here!

Perhaps email him the link to the page.
Once he sees it he will be hooked to DD,
It's happened before...

In using AA miles:
-AA allows for free date changes and routing changes on award tickets.

May want to clarify.
There a $150 fee on saver awards for change of origin/destination. A fee will also apply if changing carriers.

Actually I was being serious, I don't mind grammar corrections.

Every airline charges for O/D changes.  Does AA indeed charge $150 though for a carrier change with the same O/D?
