How in the world did you find availability? I gave up looking and just sold em and paid cash!

Lol was abt to book biz class for 55k a seat and then saw first saver for 32.5k but I only found one seat. So I booked it  and HUCA'd til a nice rep was able to match my wife to 32.5k for first as well!

There was tons of first available just not for saver award and I didn't have enuf on my account to use for first regularly. So when I explained that my wife was gonna b in J and I would b in Z bc I tried booking it on both our accounts and only one award showed up and now I'd b going back and forth during the flight the rep was very accommodating and manually put in the 32.5k

Thanks.  I imagine if I get an award flight, it'll be a combo of TLV-europe with OneWorld and europe-ORD with Star Alliance.  I have seen some availability through Tokyo, but not looking for a 30+ hour trip with the kids...

LY J TLV - MXP
EK F MXP - JFK

With the dreaded five hour stopover in the middle.

Any shot I can see something out of the airport or don't even bother?

Was also wondering about interlining from LY-EK.
I remember when a coke was a nickel, and you could buy VRs in OD.

You can technically get out and have 2 hours to actually see stuff, but there ain't much there unless your just going to eat.
What did the first leg cost? Second leg is the a380?

TLV-LAX-SEA-KOA using 45k AA miles.
Finally found seats open up direct LAX-KOA, and that'll save us 11 hours of travel.
