Definitely DL J space into or out of TLV is the rarest of the breed (if it even exists).
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

Got it RT for my FIL back in the day. He was very pleased.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

That's a key phrase.

I was also very pleased on DL J (got my best sleep ever on a TLV-JFK flight), but wasn't award space, just got a good HC.

Does it make sense that United has 0 saver award availability for the whole of Feb 2019 from NYC>LAX?

I see flights with not one seat purchased, yet there is no saver award option?

yes
But dan won’t criticize him while he has GS :). Lately aa has been better than UA for Y and J saver space in advance. UA at least has last seat going for it.
