which transfer partner is best using MR points for a TLV-NYC flight in economy? FlyingBlue charges 25,000 miles so looking for cheaper alternatives.

ba.com is good. However, I have first hand experience showing that inventory may be slightly different for AS Mileage club members.

Are we getting the price mistake deal again? :)

Which dates? I'm seeing the same price ($846) for some random dates.

When booking USA to TLV on ElAl, is it preferable to book on PRICELINE or directly on ElAl? There is a chance I might have to change or cancel my flight (after the 24 hour grace period), and interested to know if there are disadvantages to either method?
