FYI, this thread is for alerts, not discussions.

How come they're still flying?

I saw jpost reporting that the only 3 airlines that still have scheduled service ex-TLV are UA, SU and ET
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

Cargo is my only guess.
SU doesn't have scheduled service anymore: https://www.dansdeals.com/points-travel/israel/roundup-airlines-cancelling-reducing-service-israel-due-coronavirus/

DH still flying CPH/ARN/BCN-TLV

UA managers may simply not be showing up to the office to cancel the flight.

TBH, if I were flying knowing that the flight is 70% empty and airports are a breeze to get through, I'd have no problem flying Y, expecting to have an entire middle section for myself, and no lines at the restrooms.

https://www.dansdeals.com/points-travel/israel/israel-will-force-new-arrivals-quarantine-hotels/
But I believe you need to be Israeli or prove residence in IL, to qualify for these Pesach programs...

Not saver, but JFK-TLV for 105K on Delta One probably deserves a post here.
