Is ANA the cheapest miles way to book to TLV?  Dan has a comparison somewhere but cant find it.

Dan explains it in his post about cheaper airlines to book (Aegean slightly more but allow OW bokings, Turkish slightly less) than ANA's RT at 104k but ANA can be transferred from Amex MR points so they happen to be way easier for me to earn.  I also love that Amex transfers points to them in about 48hrs (good luck with Marriott transfers that can take weeks), and that I can book online via ANAs really great multi-city, multi-class award search tool.  Also, if you don't change the routing, ANA allows unlimited date and time changes for free.  You can also redeposit the whole reservation for only 3k points.  Twice now, I've found better connection times for my Den-SFO and SFO-Denver legs and they've changed it for me for free. Their phone reps are also super helpful.

Very outdated, but I think this is what you're looking for:

5.5 RT TLV-EWR UA J for next Pesach
4.5 RT with AC 165K/PP (there were only 5 tickets available on the outbound, waiting for the 6th to free up)
1 RT with TK 94K

Can someone do me a favor and set up an ExpertFlyer notification for 1 J seat on UA 91 on March 18, 2021?

Life isn't about checking the boxes. Nobody cares.
