tlv - nyc  rt in ly j 180k qf for next summer

probably cheapest feasible way to go nonstop j to israel
Definitely - in the height of the summer.
But AA uses dynamic pricing, so you can theoretically get a J nonstop for as low as 66k! Maybe even lower..

Syd - JFK aa j for 80k aa

In this regard American are better united as they often make available the transcon flights as married segments in j

(alone it's 100k), unlike United also offers it as a married segment but only in economy

Booked a flight for the rally (JAX-DCA). Morning flights are insanely expensive, so I booked a PM flight for 11K AA with hopes to get on standby for the AM flight, and will just cancel if not. For the return I booked with 12K AA, but if I make the outbound, Iíll rebook it for 7.5K Avios.
