JFK-TLV LY 772 J 90k QF x 2 = $19.20
BUD-JFK LO 788 J 57.5k AC x 2 +$258

Cash price for total Itinerary $13,027  :o

As poor as the hard products may be, nothing compares to the value of surprising a child who is away from home and booking something for when it works for me. Thank you @Dan and thank you DDF community for all the help.
relax on the cash price

Ok quote me a legit price so I can actually post a real number thats Google flights as a multi-city. As 2 OW's its even more. And thats for 2 tickets. So $6500 per seat is not that crazy.

Regardless of "real number", you're getting an amazing value.

But if you want a comparison number, pricing for random dates on that routing is ~$4k each (LY random dates with fake return in Economy $2350 range (published), LO random date 1 way for $1650).
Once the game is over, the king and the pawn go back in the same box.

Nice!
But ow cash price is meaningless since a nonstop RT (or multicity) would be much cheaper. Still great value.

The cash price quoted is for 2 seats using my routing JFL-TLV OJ BUD-JFK. Find a cheaper ticket nonstop in each direction, please.
